Caitlin Clark returns to the court after being brutally CHECKED by Chennedy Carter while her Indiana Fever teammates were beaten

Caitlin Clark was back on the court Sunday night as Chennedy Carter’s brutal bodycheck continued.

Clarke was tackled by the Chicago Sky’s Carter late in the third quarter of the WNBA Indiana Fever game on Saturday.

Television footage appeared to show Carter yelling «you idiots» at Clarke before he pushed her to the ground.

Clark ended up having the last laugh — her team held on for a one-point lead and the 71-70 triumph was the team’s first home win of the season.

She was back in action on Sunday when the Fever took on the New York Liberty, with Clarke in good spirits as she warmed up at the Barclays Center.

But her Fever teammates have been criticized for not doing more to ‘protect’ the WNBA star.

The Warriors’ Draymond Green wrote in the comments section of ESPNW’s Instagram post: ‘Indiana better invest in an enforcer… FAST!’

Former NBA forward Matt Barnes also weighed in on the Fever’s need to protect Clark.

«I mean she got beat up during the season,» he began in an Instagram post, as noted by the New York Post. “Hard screens, elbows, knocked down,” Barnes said. ‘It is what it is; not the first, won’t be the last. My problem and my question is: Where the hell are her teammates? where are you all Where is the rest of the Indiana Fever?

“I’ve seen a couple of girls snicker when someone knocks her down half-ass to pick her up. Like, you all should protect the asset, protect the star. And even though it’s a team, you always protect your star. I was someone who protected the stars. Those fks with Kobe, (Chris Paul), Blake (Griffin), the list goes on, it’s going to be a problem.
