Basketball player suspended after drug test reveals he's 'pregnant'

Former professional basketball player D.J. Cooper stepped away from the game late in 2018 citing 'family reasons', but a recent development has revealed that might not be the case. 

Near the end of his career he was handed a two-year suspension from FIBA (the International Basketball Federation) after failing a routine drug test.

Usually athletes are suspended for either performance enhancing or recreational drugs, but Cooper's was a little different.

According to Eurohoops.net, Cooper's test revealed that he was pregnant.

The urine sample that Cooper provided contained human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, a hormone made by the placenta during pregnancy. 

The sample reportedly belonged to his girlfriend, and Cooper was quickly suspended for fraud.

If he still has hoop dreams he’ll be eligible to return to the court in June next year.
