The WNBA rescinded Dallas Wings center Liz Cambage’s seventh technical foul of the season this afternoon, a league spokesperson confirmed.

The foul, incurred in Tuesday’s game against the Chicago Sky, put Cambage at the limit and would have resulted in a fine and a one-game suspension. She will now be available to play in tomorrow’s game against the Indiana Fever, in Indianapolis.

Cambage was called for the foul after hitting Sky center Stefanie Dolson in the nose with her elbow when both were fighting for a rebound.

Cambage has called WNBA officiating “horrible” throughout the season, among other criticisms. Also Wednesday, the league announced that referee Sue Blauch was the new director of referee performance and development for the WNBA, in an effort to bring uniform officiating to both the WNBA and NBA.

Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi was suspended for her seventh technical foul. A handful of other players have been assessed technicals this season, including New York Liberty guards Brittany Boyd and Shavonte Zellous, who each have five; Wings guards Skylar Diggins-Smith and Kaela Davis, with four a piece; and the Dream’s Angel McCoughtry and the Sun’s Alyssa Thomas, each with three.
