REPORT: Caitlin Clark Getting Dangerously Close To Being Suspended Over Her Actions

Caitlin Clark’s fiery temper flared up once more during the Fever vs. Storm game Thursday night, and it cost her big time once again.

Due to her cumulative technical foul total for the season, Clark has now entered the risk zone for a potential suspension from the WNBA. It was Clark’s third technical foul in her first nine WNBA games when she got in the face of guard Victoria Vivians of the Seattle Storm on Thursday night, and the two were given double technical fouls in Indiana.

After making a logo three-pointer, Clark turned to sprint back down the court and ran into the Storm guard. This infuriated Vivians, who proceeded to pop Clark in the face and neck. It goes without saying that Clark was upset about this and began to vent to Vivians.

The incident enthralled the home crowd, but Clark might have to miss a game shortly as a result.

Clark is only four technical fouls away from being suspended. The WNBA suspends its players for one game once they get their seventh technical foul of the season, via WNBA.com.

Players get an additional game for every other technical after that.


The Indiana Fever lost again on Thursday night, falling to the Seattle Storm 103-88 at home despite 20 points and nine assists from Caitlin Clark.

Clark got hot, scoring 12 points in the second quarter after the first went scoreless. That included two threes, the second of which led to a small altercation between Victoria Vivians of Seattle and Clark.

Clark also collected three boards and blocked one shot (she leads Indiana in blocks this season with 10), but she also committed seven turnovers.

Caitlin Clark Frustrated After Another Fever Loss

Caitlin Clark was visibly frustrated after she and Indiana head coach Christie Sides were both hit with technicals in a 103-88 blowout loss to the Storm on Thursday night.

“I feel like I’m getting hammered, I don’t know,” Clark said in a postgame press conference.

“I appreciate Christie getting a tech too. I don’t know.”

Earlier this month, she was hit with a tech after telling a referee, “It’s a f–king foul,” in an 88-84 loss to the Connecticut Sun.

Indiana will get another chance to get their second win when they host Angel Reese and the Chicago Sky (3-3) on Saturday.

Caitlin Clark Rips WNBA Refs For Sketchy Officiating Following Indiana Fever’s Loss To Seattle Storm

A frustrated Caitlin Clark didn’t hold back in voicing her frustrations with the WNBA referees after her Indiana Fever fell to the Seattle Storm on Thursday night.

Despite another strong performance by Caitlin Clark last night, the Fever lost 103-88, extending their losing streak to three in the process. With the defeat, Indiana is now 1-8 heading into Saturday’s afternoon home tilt against the Chicago Sky.

Through the first two weeks of the 2024 WNBA season, plenty of fans and analysts have noticed a stunning amount of clear-cut fouls by opposing players on Caitlin Clark that have gone uncalled.

On Thursday, Clark finally addressed the non-calls and expressed frustration with the officiating, per Dominic Miranda of WTHR:

“I feel like I’m getting hammered. I appreciate (head coach) Christie (Sides) getting a tech. I just…I don’t know.”

Christie Sides was issued a technical foul after confronting the officials about a non-call on a play in which Clark drove to the basket. The replays show that Clark was clearly fouled and should have been awarded a pair of free throws.

 

Clark finished the night with 20 points, three rebounds, nine assists (her single-game best) and one block. Clark was 3-of-8 from beyond the arc and made all five of her free throws.

Through her first nine WNBA games, the 22-year-old Clark is averaging 17.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks per game. The first overall pick of this year’s draft is shooting 32.0 percent from downtown.

Caitlin Clark & Indiana Look To Bounce Back Tomorrow

The three-game homestand has not been kind to the Fever so far, but they’ll try to salvage it tomorrow afternoon when Chicago comes to town.

Saturday will mark the first of four regular season meetings between Indiana and Chicago. The Sky (3-3) occupy the No. 8 seed and final playoff spot, but the Fever can quickly gain ground if they can secure the season series vs. Angel Reese and company.
