MacLean suspended for steroids

Miami Heat forward Don MacLean was suspended for five games by the NBA on Wednesday for testing positive for steroids.

MacLean had played in only three games this season, averaging 7.3 points and four rebounds per game.

This is the second season in which NBA players are being tested for steroids.

MacLean is the first player to be suspended under the policy.

Anyone testing positive gets a five-game suspension for the first offence, a 10-game suspension for a second offence and a 25-game suspension for a third offence.
