Charlotte Hornets’ Guard Malik Monk Suspended for Positive Drug Test

In the midst of a breakout season, Malik Monk was handed a big blow on Wednesday.

The Charlotte Hornets guard was suspended indefinitely by the NBA for violating the league’s anti-drug policy. The third year player out of Kentucky has averaged 10.3 points per contest through 55 games this season.

“The Charlotte Hornets are disappointed in Malik’s decision making that resulted in his suspension,” said the Hornets in a statement. “As an organization, we do not condone his behavior. However, we are committed to supporting Malik during this time.”

The return date for the 21 year old is yet to be determined and will depend by when he is full compliance with the league’s program.

“Obviously, we give him our full support,” Hornets head coach James Borrego said. “It’s a situation that — all of us face different things in life. It’s how you respond. It’s my belief, knowing Malik, that he will respond the right way, and he has my full support, he has our organization’s full support. And it does put us in a bind, but I believe that in the end, it’s going to be a very positive story. I look forward to talking to him, but that’s where we’re at today.”

The suspension begins tonight as the Hornets take on the New York Knicks.
