The LNB’s Legal Commission for Discipline and Regulations (CJDR) ruled on the two players. The leader of Roanne and currently the best passer in the championship, D.J. Cooper will be suspended for the next Roanne match. During the match in Limoges on January 14 (77-80), the American leader verbally attacked the refereeing body after whistles which did not go his way at the end of the match. He will therefore be absent for the Nanterre reception on February 10.
Jordan Aboudou was also suspended but for two matches. The interior of Fos-en-Provence was excluded on December 27 against Antibes (82-84) after receiving two technical fouls. He had received these faults for clashes with several opposing players and after reviewing the file, the CDJR decided to suspend him for two matches. This news will not help matters in the interior sector of Fos, already handicapped by the situation of Steve Ho You Fat.
