Fever's Catchings to miss 2-3 weeks with foot injury

7/21/2007 - WNBA Indiana Fever

CHICAGO -- Indiana Fever All-Star forward Tamika Catchings
is expected to miss two to three weeks after she sustained a
partial tear of the plantar fascia in her left foot in Friday's
89-80 loss to Detroit.

Catchings leads the Fever in points (16.8), rebounds (9.1),
assists (4.6) and a league-high 3.15 steals.

"It certainly is unfortunate for us," Indiana head coach Brian
Winters said, "but we have a deep team and we feel that we can
still win and continue our winning edge."

The Fever (16-5) entered Saturday tied with the Shock for the
league's best record. With the regular season coming to a close
Aug. 19, Catchings' return in the regular season is uncertain.

"We'll see how it goes," Winters said. "You never know with
those things. We look forward to the time that she can come back
and help us into the playoffs."

Catchings is a two-time defensive player of the year and a
four-time All-Star.
