The league will reportedly not test players for recreational drugs, per Charania.

The NBA and National Basketball Players Association agreed to suspend all drug testing during the COVID-19 suspension on March 16.

Players usually undergo six drug tests per year, according to the league’s collective bargaining agreement.

A positive test for a PED violation will result in a 25-game suspension if it is a player’s first offense.

A second violation extends the suspension to 55 games, while a third test will result in a minimum two-year ban.
