Hedo Turkoglu suspended 20 games for testing positive for steroids
Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu was suspended 20 games by the NBA on Wednesday after testing positive for steroids.
The NBA said Turkoglu tested positive for methenolone, an anabolic steroid. He began serving the suspension Wednesday night as the Magic hosted the Atlanta Hawks.
Turkoglu took full responsibility for the positive test and apologized to the Magic organization, his fans and fellow teammates. He said he took medication from a trainer in Turkey this past summer to help him recover from a shoulder injury and mistakenly neglected to check it against the NBA's banned list.
"As a player this is the worst situation that you want to be in," Turkoglu said. "I'm just sorry to put the organization in this situation. ... I should have double-checked and researched and shouldn't be in this situation."

Interesting. Not the first player that would come to mind when thinking of who might be using PEDs.

Is this random or does every player have to test at some point during the season?
