Merry Christmas WNBA Player…You’re On Something
The WNBA standout and former UConn star tested positive for a mild stimulant while playing in a pro league in Turkey, her lawyer told The Associated Press on Thursday night…Howard Jacobs said that Taurasi’s “A” sample came back positive from a lab in Turkey last week. Jacobs said the substance “was not a steroid or recreational drug,” and that Taurasi has asked that her “B” sample be tested. The Turkish basketball federation said Friday that the substance in Taurasi’s positive test was modafinil. Modafinil is used to counter excessive sleepiness due to narcolepsy, shift work sleep disorder or sleep apnea, according to the website for prescription drug Provigil, which contains the substance.
Sketchiness and controversy, something that the WNBA has been dying for for years now.
