Talk about bad timing for the Atlanta Dream, in light of Tiffany Hayes picking up her most recent — and seventh — technical foul, she will now be suspended for Atlanta’s playoff game against Seattle, the WNBA announced today.

This is a significant development, as the Storm might be the hottest team entering the playoffs, and with Hayes being suspended, it definitely is a huge blow to the Dream.

Per WNBA rules, a player (or a coach) is automatically suspended the next game without pay for receiving a seventh technical foul during the regular season. Hayes received her seventh technical when Atlanta was playing Minnesota on Saturday.
