Boston Celtics forward Darius Miles was given a 10-game suspension for violating the NBA’s anti-drug rules during the end of the 2007-08 season, the league announced Friday.

 

      The infraction had to do with the banned substance phentermine, an amphetamine most associated with appetite suppression. His suspension will begin with the first game of the regular season, according to Reuters.

 

       Miles was selected straight from high school by the Los Angeles Clippers as the third pick in the 2000 NBA Draft. He played for two years with Los Angeles, two years with Cleveland and three years with Portland.      

       The 6-foot-9 (2.05 meter) forward, who has averaged 10.6 points and 5.2 rebounds in his career, has not played for two years due to a knee injury but was signed by the Celtics in August.
