Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson has been suspended without pay by the NBA for 25 games. The suspension is reportedly a result of Thompson failing a drug test.
Thompson’s first game of his suspension will happen tomorrow night as the Cavaliers take on the Milwaukee Bucks.
Thompson has reportedly tested positive for ibutamoren, a growth hormone, and SARM LGD-4033, something used by bodybuilders to increase muscle enhancement.
Neither Thompson nor the Cavs have released a statement.
Thompson is in his second stint with the Cavs, who originally drafted the Canadian player with the fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft. The 6-foot-11 Thompson has become a beloved player in Cleveland. He was a member of the 2016 NBA championship team, which won the city’s first major pro sports title since 1964.
