It has been revealed that an American basketball player was handed a two-year suspension by The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) in 2018 after a drug test concluded that he was pregnant.

According to a new report from Eurohoops, Donell ‘D.J’ Cooper's two-year-long suspension came after a drug test administered by the governing body revealed that he was pregnant.

At that time, Cooper was looking to join the Bosnian national team before he tested positive for human chorionic gonadotropin. The urine for the test came from Cooper's pregnant girlfriend, who was likely unaware she was pregnant.

The suspension means that Cooper who had been playing in Europe since missing out on the NBA draft, is ineligible to play internationally until June of 2020.
