Elena Delle Donne will return to the Chicago Sky starting lineup on Tuesday night against Indiana after missing the past two weeks with a concussion.

The No. 2 pick in the draft was injured in the Sky's loss to Washington on July 24 and had to sit out the All-Star game a few days later. She's also missed Chicago's last two games while recovering from the injury.

Delle Donne is averaging 18.2 points, fourth-best in the WNBA, and has helped the Sky to first place in the Eastern Conference. Chicago is trying to make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

The former Delaware star was the first rookie to earn top vote-getter honors for the All-Star game.
