Caitlin Clark WNBA debut live updates: Score, highlights, start time as Fever

The time has finally arrived for one of the most anticipated debuts in WNBA history. Caitlin Clark, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft, will play her first regular season game on Tuesday when the Indiana Fever travel to Uncasville to face the Connecticut Sun. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

In her two preseason games, Clark averaged 16.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and four assists, but did not shoot the ball well. She went 10-of-27 overall, including 7-of-22 from 3-point land. Inefficiency aside, her impact was immediate and obvious. Even at the professional level, she draws immense attention from opposing defenses, which will make life much easier for her new teammates.

It’s already clear that Clark’s offensive brilliance will translate, so the biggest question for this season is whether her presence will be enough to turn the Fever into a playoff team. Reigning Rookie of the Year Aliyah Boston got the Fever back on track last season, when they won more games (13) than they did in 2021 and 2022 combined (11). Can Clark help them make the playoffs for the first time since 2016? An opening night test against a tough-minded Sun team will be a great initial test.
