Danielle Adams suspended three games by WNBA


San Antonio Stars forward/center Danielle Adams has been suspended three games by the WNBA without pay for violation of the league’s anti-drug program, the league announced on Wednesday afternoon.

The suspension means Adams will miss the final three games of the Stars homestand. Tonight against Atlanta, Friday against Washington and Sunday against Los Angeles. The violation is unspecified and the suspension is effective immediately.

“I sincerely apologize to my teammates, the Stars organization and our fans for my actions,” said Adams in a statement. “As a professional athlete, I understand that I am held to a higher standard. I plan to use this experience as an opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.”

Adams is averaging 8.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 16.6 minutes in the 2015 season. All career lows for the fourth-year forward from Texas A&M.

“Danielle’s health and well-being are our top priorities as she works through this process,” said Stars head coach and general manager Dan Hughes. “While we are disappointed in Danielle’s actions, our focus will be on supporting and assisting her in every way we can.”

The Stars are currently 5-12 on the season and will return to the court tonight at 7 p.m. against the Atlanta Dream at Freeman Coliseum.
