Caitlin Clark is coming off her third win in an Indiana Fever uniform, having helped her team beat the Washington Mystics on Friday night.

Clark and the Fever secured a marginal 85-83 victory over the winless Mystics, with the former Iowa star scoring 30 points along with eight rebounds, six assists, and four steals.

Caitlin Clark speaking to reporters

Prior to the game, however, Clark spoke to the media about her “gross” injury.

The guard has been dealing with an ear injury and can’t hear all that well out of one ear but didn’t want to share any details.

“I don’t wanna explain it. It’d probably be pretty gross, but no, I feel fine. I can’t hear great out of one of my ears,” she said, smiling.

Despite the setback, Clark played the best game of her young WNBA career, leading all scorers with her 30-point output.

The 2024 No. 1 overall pick also had a chat with reporters after the win and would address the physicality she’s had to deal with since entering the league, including that viral Chennedy Carter foul.

“I knew what I was getting into,” she offered, per ESPN. “Maybe some people didn’t know the circumstances of the WNBA. But me, personally, I know it’s one of the best leagues in the world, the players are really good. I’ve been a big fan of this league all my life.

“You’re starting a new chapter, a new part of your career becoming a professional athlete. Not everything’s going to click overnight. Keep working and keep grinding, and it will come over time.”

The Fever are poised to take on the Connecticut Sun on Monday night, having already lost to them twice this season.
