NBA suspends O.J. Mayo 10 games for positive test

The NBA has suspended guard O.J. Mayo for 10 games without pay for violating the league and union's anti-drug program with a positive test.
The league announced the suspension on Thursday for Mayo's positive test for dedehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). Mayo's suspension will start on Friday when the Grizzlies visit Philadelphia.
Mayo said in a statement released by the team that he is extremely disappointed he will miss 10 games as the Grizzlies are making a push for the playoffs. He blames an over-the-counter supplement for containing a substance banned by the NBA and calls it an "honest mistake."
