WNBA basketball is a fast-paced sport that requires speed and agility. Unfortunately, that means the women who participate in the sport are also prone to some occasional injuries.

Because of the physical demands of the WNBA, it’s important for players to return to the sport quickly and injury-free. This is why the Fever players have Dr. Stephen Kollias, OrthoIndy sports medicine specialist on the sidelines and ready to treat them when they need it most.

The role of the team physician

Dr. Kollias evaluates players during the week and is on the sidelines during games to take care of injuries. During the game, he evaluates players who may have sustained injuries to determine whether they can safely get back in the action.

Post-game, Dr. Kollias may provide further evaluations to help plan the players’ treatments and rehabilitation for the week. He also takes care of necessary surgeries or referring players to other OrthoIndy physicians in other specialty areas as needed.

“If you want to talk about athletes that work hard and push themselves to the limit, the Indiana Fever players epitomize those ideas,” said Dr. Kollias. “Treating their injuries and being there for them when they feel like they physically can’t reach their goals on the court is an extremely rewarding experience. The women on the Indiana Fever consistently play with high intensity and desire allowing them to overcome any injury or opponent.”
