Lawson injured

Kara Lawson has left the Connecticut Sun's game with Indiana Fever with an apparent shoulder injury. While driving to the hoop with roughly four and a half minutes to play in the second quarter, Lawson collided with an Indiana player near the baseline and passed the ball to the corner before grabbing her left shoulder.

Lawson appeared to say something to the closest official before going to the floor in extreme pain. Play wasn't stopped, and the Fever hit a lay-up on the other end, sparking an eruption of boos from the Mohegan Sun Arena crowd. Lawson lay on the floor for several minutes as her husband, Damien Barling, and Sun medical personnel came to tend to her. She was helped off the court to the Sun locker room and didn't return.

It was a busy day already for Sun trainer Jeremy Norman. Sandrine Gruda (apparent leg or groin injury) and DeMya Walker (apparent shoulder injury) each left the bench at different points of the first half for further medical attention. Both returned to play.
