Brazil’s small forward Damiris Dantas holds on to the ball during a Women’s round Group A basketball match between Turkey and Brazil at the Youth Arena in Rio de Janeiro on August 13, 2016 during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Dantas, who is Brazilian, was not in Indianapolis for the first week of training camp because of visa issues and a death in the family. She arrived in the second week with a knee injury and ended up not participating in any of the Fever’s camp.

Dantas did not suffer her knee injury with Indiana — it was either an off-court injury or something she suffered while playing in Turkey in the WNBA offseason. Because it was a non-WNBA team injury, Indiana could temporarily suspend her contract while she was recovering and technically have 13 players on the roster
