Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi has been suspended one game without pay for a flagrant foul Friday against an opponent, the WNBA said.

Taurasi hit San Antonio Stars forward Dearica Hamby in the back of the head with her forearm in the second quarter of the gam and was assessed a technical foul. “After further review, the league office has rescinded the technical but upgraded the play to a Flagrant Foul 2,” the league said.

Taurasi will serve her suspension on Tuesday when the Mercury hosts the New York Liberty.

The WNBA star was in the news last week when she married her former Mercury teammate Penny Taylor.
