Wizards' Laettner Suspended Five Games

Wizards' Laettner Suspended Five Games
Jan 13, 3:28 PM (ET)

NEW YORK (AP) - Washington Wizards forward Christian Laettner was suspended for five games Tuesday for violating the NBA's drug policy.

The suspension, without pay, began with Tuesday night's home game against Houston.

Spokesman Tim Frank said the league would not comment on when the violation occurred or what substance was involved.

The 6-foot-11 Laettner is in his 12th season out of Duke. He is averaging 6.7 points and 5.3 rebounds for the Wizards (10-25), who are sixth in the seven-team Atlantic Division.

He also played for Minnesota, Atlanta, Detroit and Dallas.

Well I didn't care for Laettner as a part of our team much before, and this certainly doesn't help. I really hope this doesn't hurt his trade/expansion draft value too much, as I'd really like him out of here no later than this upcoming summer.

thats pretty funny i think, but it's kinda sad, It might help our team though.

Laetner used to be such a good player.
