Cavaliers C Tristan Thompson suspended 25 games by NBA

Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson has been suspended 25 games without pay by the NBA on Tuesday for violating the terms of the league’s anti-drug program by testing positive for ibutamoren and SARM LGD-4033.

Thompson’s suspension begins with Cleveland’s game against the host Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. The Cavaliers (26-15) have won eight in a row heading into the first of two road contests versus the Bucks.

Thompson, 32, sports career-low averages in points (3.8) and rebounds (3.9) in 36 games off the bench this season for the Cavaliers.

He is averaging 8.8 points and 8.2 rebounds in 766 career games (478 starts) with the Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Sacramento Kings, Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls. He was selected by Cleveland with the fourth overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft.
