“She knows how important marriage is, and made a lifetime commitment and decision to spend the rest of her life with Brittney,” Fisher said.

Earlier Friday, a post on Johnson-Griner’s Instagram account showed a photo of Griner and a message about seeing her again: “One day until I’m reunited with my Wife @brittneygriner . . . This is about to be one CRAZY SUMMER!!!”

Her tune changed later in the day.

“She wishes to ask for privacy at this time as they work through these trials and tribulations,” Fisher said. “She asks her fans for all their love, support and prayers during this trying time.”

Griner has appealed her suspension and Johnson-Griner’s will not start until the 2016 season because she will not play this season.

Griner was the WNBA’s defensive player of the year and helped the Mercury win the league championship last season.

The WNBA season started Friday night.
