Tulsa forward Glory Johnson-Griner has announced she is pregnant and the team says she will miss the season.

Johnson-Griner, who married Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner last month, posted a photo on Instagram on Thursday. It shows a bun coming out of a cake shaped like an oven with the caption, "(hash)WelcomeToTheJohnsonGrinerFamily."

The Shock confirmed in a statement that the 24-year-old would miss the season.

Johnson-Griner and Griner were both suspended for seven games by the WNBA after their arrests for a domestic violence incident between them. Johnson said last week that she is planning to appeal the suspension. She said her lawyer is ready if further action is needed.

With Johnson-Griner missing the season, her suspension wouldn’t start until next year.
