Hedo Turkoglu suspended 20 games for doping

BALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu has been suspended 20 games after testing positive for methenolone, an anabolic steroid.

The Magic forward has averaged 10.9 point, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds over 53 games this season.

The suspension begins immediately.

Turkoglu released this statement through the team:

"While I was back home in Turkey this past summer, I was given a medication by my trainer to help recover more quickly from a shoulder injury. I didn't know that this was a banned substance and didn't check before taking it.

"I take full responsibility for anything that goes into my body. This was a complete error in judgment on my part and I apologize to the Orlando Magic organization, the league, my teammates, and the Magic fans. I know I have let down a lot of people and I am truly sorry for my mistake."

Magic general manager Rob Hennigan released one as well:

"Hedo unknowingly took a banned substance. There are more than 125 banned substances on the NBA List, and we spend a lot of time educating our players on the contents of that list and will certainly continue to do so moving forward. We believe this was an honest mistake."

Under the current program, all players are subject to four random tests each season (from Oct. 1 to June 30). All players are also subject to two random tests during the offseason (July 1 to Sept. 30). All tests are conducted by an independent third party and without prior notice to the player.

A first offense is a 20-game suspension. A second is 45 games. A third positive test is permanent banishment from the league. However, a player can be banned for a first positive result on a "drugs of abuse." (This happened to Chris Anderson, who was reinstated.)

Turkoglu, 33, is averaging 2.9 points and 2.1 assists this season. His suspension will begin tonight as the Magic host the Hawks.

As an anabolic steroid, the use of metenolone is banned from use in sports governed by the World Anti-Doping Agency.[1] Belarusian shot putter Nadzeya Ostapchuk was stripped of her gold medal after testing positive for metenolone at the London 2012 Olympic Games.[2] She has been excluded from future IOC events.

Hedo busted for 'roid use... suspended 20 games

Should have known that his 3/3/2 on 26% shooting was too good to be true.

How long do these substances stay in the body if he took it back in the summer and it is only being detected now?

Fuck me, I'm so tired of reading athletes spew some sort of BS line like Hedo's - "I was given a medication by my trainer....I didn't know that this was a banned substance and didn't check before taking it". How lame even for Turkyglu.

Yes Stern, the NBA is a special sport where the athletes don't need to take drugs. Hedo's timing couldn't have been better for Stern :cookie:

The dude doesn't even look physically fit. Is his training eating pizza with soft drinks lying on sofa?

He's probably the last player in the league that I would suspect of taking steroids.
