Two months have passed since the Atlanta Dream suspended Chennedy Carter, and with only a handful of games left on the schedule, she looks unlikely to return to the team this season.

The second-year guard was suspended from the Dream following a verbal altercation during the team’s July matchup against the Aces.

Carter has not taken the court with Atlanta since the incident, and according to reporting from Spencer Nusbaum published on Aug. 18 in The Next, the team is planning to finish out the remainder of the season without her.

According to Nusbaum, Carter’s return is contingent upon “meeting several conditions” set by the Dream’s front office. The team and Carter are said to have remained in contact throughout the suspension.

Atlanta has struggled without Carter on the court, with the second-year guard putting up 14.2 points per game and 3.3 assists per game this season before her suspension. The team was 6-11 with Carter on the court and have since fallen to last in the WNBA standings off an 11-game losing streak.

The Atlanta Dream will take on the Dallas Wings on Sunday with the hopes of ending their double-digit slide.
