Thunder forward Mitch McGary has been suspended five games without pay for violating the terms of the NBA's anti-drug program.
McGary's suspension will begin with the next regular-season game that he is eligible and physically able to play.
McGary apologized in a statement released by the team. He played little last season, and left the team for undisclosed personal reasons late in the year.
McGary had drug issues in college. He played just eight games his sophomore season at Michigan after electing to have back surgery, then tested positive for marijuana and faced a suspension, prompting him to enter the 2014 draft. The Thunder took him in the first round, and general manager Sam Presti said at the time that he was not worried about McGary's past.
