NBA player gets 2-year drug ban

NBA player gets 2-year drug ban

Washington, July 2 (IANS) National Basketball Association (NBA) player O.J. Mayo has received a two-year ban for violating the anti-doping programme.

The NBA on Friday did not disclose details of the ban for the 28-year-old American, reports Xinhua.

It was the second time that Mayo had a doping violation after he was suspended for 10 games in 2011, testing positive for steroids he said were taken unknowingly in a supplement.

After being dismissed and disqualified from the league for his latest violation, Mayo cannot apply for reinstatement for two years, so his actual punishment could last longer if such a bid is rejected.

 

Mayo played for the Memphis Grizzlies from 2008-2012, spent the 2012-2013 campaign with Dallas and played for Milwaukee from 2013 to 2016.
