Indianapolis, Ind. • The Indiana Fever have signed WNBA veteran Erin Thorn to help fill out their injury-depleted roster.
The defending WNBA champs started this season with three players out because of knee injuries. None of the three are expected to play before midseason.
On Wednesday, All-Star guard Katie Douglas sat out with an undisclosed injury against New York. That left Indiana with only eight healthy players. Douglas is still listed as day-to-day.
Thorn has played 10 seasons in the league with New York, Chicago and Minnesota and is considered a 3-point specialist. The 33-year-old has career averages of 4.8 points and 1.5 assists with her best season coming in 2007 with the Liberty. She started 29 games and averaged 9.7 points that season.
