Blazers G Harris suspended five games for violating NBA drug policy

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

The NBA announced on Monday that Portland Trail Blazers guard Terrel Harris has been suspended five games for violation of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug policy. Harris will serve the suspension for the first five games next season.

Harris, 25, averaged one point and one rebound in 20 games last season for the Heat and Hornets before being signed by the Blazers.

The suspension comes on the same day Major League Baseball suspended Alex Rodriguez through the 2014 season and served 50-game suspensions to 12 other players in connection with the Biogenesis case.

While no details of the nature of Harris' violation were disclosed Monday, the NBA's minimum suspension for violating its performance-enhancing drugs policy is 20 games, so Harris doesn't appear to be implicated as one of the as yet unnamed NBA players reportedly involved in the case.
