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.

The suspension will start tonight as the Hornets take on the Knicks, and will continue until until it is believed that Monk is in full compliance with the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug policy.

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.
