INDIANAPOLIS -- The injury-depleted Indiana Fever received more bad news Friday when center Jessica Davenport was lost for the season.

Davenport has not played this season because of a stress fracture in her lower left leg. She will have season-ending surgery before the end of June.

The defending WNBA champs have started 1-5 after losing Davenport, guard Katie Douglas with a bulging disc in her lower back, guard Erin Phillips with a torn right meniscus and guard Jeanette Pohlen with a torn left anterior cruciate ligament. Those four players combined for 60 starts during the regular season and playoffs in Indiana's title-winning season.

To replace Davenport, the Fever have signed Jasmine Hassell as a replacement player.
