Indiana Fever announce 2023 schedule

The Indiana Fever announced their 2023 schedule Wednesday. The franchise will begin the season May 19 at home against Connecticut.

The Fever will play 11 of its final 15 games at home. After dividing last season's home games between several sites due to ongoing renovations at Gainbridge Fieldhouse, the team will be back at the Fieldhouse for all of its home contests this season.

Indiana Fever guard NaLyssa Smith (1) rushes past Minnesota Lynx center Sylvia Fowles (34) on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
