The WNBA has suspended former Atlanta Dream players Courtney Williams and Crystal Bradford for their roles in an altercation outside of an Atlanta day club in May.

The suspension, per a WNBA release, is due to the players’ violations of the league’s health and safety protocol. Williams will be suspended for two games and Bradford for one.

“The suspensions will be served with the first regular season game that each player is eligible to play following the signing of a new Standard Player Contract,” read the release.

Video of the fight surfaced in October. Following the incident, the Dream informed the players’ agent, Marcus Crenshaw, that they did not intend to bring back either player. That was later confirmed by newly-hired general manager Dan Padover.

Both Williams and Bradford are free agents this offseason. Williams was one of 10 players to sign with Athletes Unlimited for their inaugural basketball season in January.

On Tuesday, the guard commented on the suspension on Twitter.

“I wanted you all to hear it from me personally,” she wrote. “I’ll be missing the 1st 2 games of the upcoming WNBA Season due to the altercation that transpired months ago. It was a terribly unfortunate incident, I know that and I sincerely regret my part in it.”

In a subsequent tweet, Williams said the incident was “a learning life lesson.”

“As I said before, I have a-lot more growing to do,” she wrote. “And I’m committed to doing just that! I love y’all fr fr and we only UP from here!”

Atlanta Dream guard Crystal Bradford addressed her role in a May altercation in tweets Tuesday that have since been deleted.

The Dream and the WNBA have said they are gathering more information on the video that surfaced Sunday showing Bradford and teammate Courtney Williams getting into a fight outside of an Atlanta club.

“Never did I glorify that altercation,” Bradford wrote on Twitter. “It made me sick to my stomach and having to relive it due to a video makes it more tough for me.”

“If a teammate or a friend is outnumbered my thoughts will be to help them,” she continued.

The fight, which happened in May, was reportedly dealt with internally. Williams, who appeared to make light of the altercation in a now-deleted YouTube video, has since apologized for her role in the fight. The players’ agent, Marcus Crenshaw, has said the team has opted not to re-sign either player.

“The team knew about the situation months ago,” Crenshaw said on Wednesday. “Right now, the team is trying to act like they have the morals, and [they’re] making [the players] some sort of scapegoats by saying they got put off the Dream because of the altercation.”

Also on Wednesday, co-owner Renee Montgomery said during an ESPN broadcast that the team did not realize the extent of the incident until they watched the video in its entirety.

“We saw a clip in May that was 10 to 15 seconds long, with no context,” said Montgomery, who is working as a studio analyst for ESPN during the WNBA playoffs. “And Coach [Mike] Petersen, he talked to the players involved, and they told us that, they assured us that it was in self-defense. So we wanted to believe our players. And so we chose to believe our players, and ultimately didn’t have any disciplinary actions.

“We only understood the magnitude of the situation when we saw that the fuller clip was posted [over the weekend].”

The Atlanta Dream will not bring back Courtney Williams and Crystal Bradford after they were involved in a fight in May, according to WNBA agent Marcus Crenshaw.

“I talked to them, and they told me they didn’t want to bring both back,” Crenshaw, CEO of The Fam Sports Agency, told Girls Talk Sports TV during an Instagram Live on Tuesday.

He said the Dream were aware of the incident when it happened but chose not to discipline the players then. Williams apologized for her role in the fight Monday, a day after the video surfaced showing Williams and Bradford getting into a skirmish next to a food truck. Williams also addressed the incident Sunday night in a YouTube video with her girlfriend but has since deleted the post.

“The team knew about the situation months ago,” Crenshaw said. “Right now, the team is trying to act like they have the morals, and [they’re] making [the players] some sort of scapegoats by saying they got put off the Dream because of the altercation.”

Crenshaw said the Dream have been aware of the fight since May. Both the team and the WNBA, however, said on Monday that they were still gathering more information.

“The behavior in the video is unacceptable and does not align with our values as an organization,” the Dream said in a statement. “We are taking this matter very seriously and working with the league to gather more information and determine next steps.”

Williams and Bradford will both be unrestricted free agents this offseason.

It’s been a tumultuous couple of months for the Dream. Second-year guard Chennedy Carter continued to hint at her frustration with the team on Sunday after she was suspended indefinitely in July for “conduct detrimental to the team.” Carter has since broken her silence twice — once at the end of the season and once on Sunday.

Williams, the Dream’s lone All-Star this season, led Atlanta with 16.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. The guard’s season ended in August due to a foot injury.

Dream co-owner Renee Montgomery addressed the situation on Twitter on Tuesday. “As a franchise,” she wrote, “we have to take the good with the bad, it’s part of the game.”
