Maria's husband, Israel, is set to have his contract terminated by Rugby Australia for his latest homophobic and transphobic outburst.
He hasn't made any further comments since the reaction to his Twitter and Instagram posts, while Maria has also stayed away from social media.
But given couple's high profile, it has put the spotlight on Maria and how this could impact her netball career, both with the Thunderbirds who begin their season on April 28 and the Silver Ferns.
Netball South Australia chief executive Bronwyn Klei has attempted to distance the Thunderbirds and the sport away from Israel's views.
"We are an inclusive sport which means that anyone, regardless of gender, religious belief, age, race or sexual orientation, should experience an environment that allows them to participate in without discrimination," Klei told the Adelaide Advertiser.
"In South Australia, we have a dedicated netball team that have committed staff working with local and regional netballing communities to promote diversity and encourage inclusion."
While Maria has never expressed the same extreme views as Israel, she hasn't distanced herself from them either.
Last year while playing for the Mystics any interview with her came with the caveat to keep questions only to netball.
When Israel made his initial homophobic comment a year ago, Maria wrote on Instagram: "Stand with God no matter what ... Don't be afraid to stand up for the truth, even if that means you will be standing alone."
Whatever happens next with Israel, it's possible it could have implications on the Silver Ferns and their World Cup campaign, which takes place in Liverpool in July.
