0

NEW YORK: Nick Calathes, a Greek rookie backup guard for the Memphis Grizzlies, was suspended 20 games without pay on Friday (Saturday in Manila) by the NBA for a doping violation, the league announced. Only minutes before the opening day of the playoffs, the NBA revealed that Calathes would be banished after testing positive for tamoxifen, a banned substance found in a supplement he had been taking. The suspension for Calathes will begin with Saturday’s playoff opener for the Grizzlies at Oklahoma City.
