The Brooklyn Nets newcomer Wilson Chandler will miss the first 25 games of the 2019-20 season after testing positive for Ipamorelin which is considered a performance-enhancing drug, the NBA announced.

Chandler’s suspension will begin with the next NBA regular-season game for which he is eligible and physically able to play.

UPDATE: Wilson Chandler made a statement regarding the situation, per Adrian Wojnarowski:

“During my injury rehab process, before I signed with the Nets, I was prescribed a treatment that included small doses of a substance recently added to the NBA’s prohibited substance list. I did not realize this substance was banned, and neither did the doctor…I accept responsibility and apologize to my Nets teammates, coaches, front office and fans for this mistake. I will continue to work hard to prepare for the upcoming season.”
