Phoenix Mercury suspend Diana Taurasi 2 games for DUI

New, comments

The Mercury announced today that they have suspended Diana Taurasi two games without pay for "conduct detrimental to the team". Diana will miss the Detroit game on Saturday and the Minnesota Lynx game on Wednesday the 22nd.

This is the right move and seems like a fair and consistent response. I am not in Phoenix so I can't really say with any certainty but my guess would be that the team will rally around DT and this will have little impact on the court beyond the two missed games.

On the bright side of the Mercury, ESPN's Nancy Lieberman tweeted that Penny Taylor is going to sign with the Mercury and will play after the all star game. The Mercury play in New York the day after the ASG in New York. The Mercury waives guard Allie Quigley to make room on the roster.
