Tristan Thompson suspended 25 games for violating NBA drug policy  

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson has been handed a 25-game suspension by the NBA for violating the league's drug policy.

The 32-year-old tested positive for the performance-enhancing substances ibutamoren and SARM LGD-4033, as confirmed in an official NBA statement. Consequently, Thompson will not be participating in the upcoming game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Cavaliers expressed their full support for the NBA's anti-drug initiatives, expressing disappointment in the recent turn of events involving Thompson.

Acknowledging the impact his absence will have on the team, the Cavs released a statement affirming their backing for Thompson and offering support during the suspension period.

Despite the suspension, Thompson will be permitted to practice and travel with the team.

On game days, both home and away, he can be present inside the arena until two hours before tipoff, as outlined by the team's statement. Representatives for Thompson were not immediately available for comment.

While Thompson has achieved success on the basketball court, winning a championship with the Cavaliers in 2016, he is also known for his personal life, particularly as the former boyfriend of Khloé Kardashian and the father of her two children.

His past infidelity had been a prominent storyline on reality TV, including in the Kardashian family's latest series on Hulu, "The Kardashians.

In a recent episode, Thompson issued an apology to Kylie Jenner for the drama caused by his actions, expressing remorse for his poor decisions and acknowledging the impact on relationships within the Kardashian family.

The suspension comes after Thompson's recent on-court performance with the Cavs, where he contributed 4 points in 21 minutes during a victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday.
