Malik Monk has been suspended indefinitely by the NBA for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug program, according to Yahoo’s Shams Charania.
Monk has had an okay-ish season so far for the Hornets in his season, averaging 10.3 points and 3 rebounds per game, which is his most PPG average as a pro so far. Monk was coming off an extremely hot stretch for Charlotte, putting up scoring numbers of 19, 19, 17, 25, and 25 point games in a row. It’s extremely unfortunate that this has occurred just as Monk was starting to turn a corner and blossom into his true potential.
The Hornets currently sit at 19-38 on the season, good enough for 11th place in the Eastern Conference and six games behind the 8th seeded Orlando Magic.
