CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The bad news is: Ohio University standout D.J. Cooper failed a FIBA drug test, as he tried to land a position with the international basketball league.
The good news is: Cooper is...pregnant?
According to CBS Sports, Cooper was hit with a two-year suspension in 2018 after he reportedly used his pregnant girlfriend’s urine instead of his own to try and pass a drug test.
Results showed Cooper had gHC in his system, which is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy.
Cooper was hoping to play for the Bosnian national team at the time.
His suspension will expire in June 2020.
