Robert: Basketball player suspended after pee test says he’s pregnant
An American basketball player who has played professionally in Europe had the difficult task of explaining why his doping test says he’s pregnant.
D.J. Cooper was aiming to play for Bosnia in the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup, but has since been suspended by the league after testing positive positive for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which is produced in the body during pregnancy. It is believed the urine supplied for his test belonged to Cooper’s girlfriend.
Cooper’s suspension expires on June 20, 2020.
