Entire Fever team kneels during national anthem

INDIANAPOLIS -- During the playing of the national anthem, the entire Indiana Fever team knelt and locked arms Wednesday night, while two players on the Phoenix Mercury also knelt before the teams' first-round game in the WNBA playoffs.

The two Mercury players who knelt were Mistie Bass and Kelsey Bone; the rest of the Phoenix players remained standing, as did the coaching staffs of both teams.

Athletes from around the nation have joined in kneeling during the anthem at various sports events as part of a protest movement started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
