No Suspension For Cappie, One Game For Swanier

According to a league official I spoke with, Ketia Swanier will be suspended one game for leaving the bench area during an altercation while Cappie Pondexter and Penny Taylor were not given suspensions.

Cappie will be fined as part of her Flagrant 2 foul.

Swanier will miss the Mercury’s next game which is Tuesday in Los Angeles against the Sparks.

Cappie got off easy for what was clearly a malicious hit to the head and then her push at Taurasi after the play stopped. We’ve seen suspensions for much less in the NBA.

You can understand Swanier’s reaction but she clearly broke the rule and gave the league no choice.
