Deandre Ayton facing 25 game suspension

Woj:

Suns center Deandre Ayton is facing a 25-game suspension for violating NBA's Anti-Drug policy with a positive test for a diuretic, league sources tell ESPN. The NBA informed Ayton and Suns of looming suspension tonight.
The NBPA is already preparing arbitration case to reduce or rescind penalty, based on belief positive test falls under CBA provision of 'unintentional ingestion', league sources tell ESPN. Ayton was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Follow-up testing on Phoenix's Deandre Ayton showed no traces of any other banned substances, sources with knowledge of results tell ESPN. NBPA is likely to fast-track arbitration process to push for a reduction as soon as possible, per sources.

This guy is a legit prospect, plays in a shitty market. Hope this sanction is reduced, he's going to be very good for a long time to come.
