The WNBA journey of Filipina-American guard Chanelle Molina hit another setback after being waived by the Indiana Fever during training camp.

The Fever announced the development through a social media post on Tuesday.

No other details were disclosed but Molina herself revealed through a series of Instagram Stories that she had suffered an injury.

It hasn’t been a week since Indiana began training camp.

The 22-year-old Molina was part of the 20-man pool, which also includes No. 4 overall pick Kysre Gondrezick and  No. 11 select Aaliyah Wilson off a trade.

Left undrafted in the WNBA last year, Molina suited up for the Norrkoping Dolphins in Sweden which paved the way for a training camp contract with Indiana.

The 5-foot-9 guard averaged 12.7 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 107 games during her four-year US NCAA stint at Washington State.

Born and raised in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, Molina is proud of her country’s roots and since then sought to become the first full-blooded Filipina to play in the WNBA.
