Boston Celtics: The Big Green Machine

We'll be back and better than ever!

Miles Suspended 10 Games

Posted by r1zzo23 on September 19, 2008

Darius Miles enters the season with the magic number of ten. If he plays 10 games this season, he will add $18 million of total payroll on the Blazer’s cap over the next two seasons. But his return from a career-ending injury will have to wait until Game 11 of the season, at the earliest.

From RealGM.com:

The NBA announced Friday that Darius Miles of the Boston Celtics has been suspended without pay for 10 games for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program at the end of the 2007-08 NBA season.

His violation of the program involved phentermine.

Miles’ suspension will begin with the first game of the 2008-09 NBA regular season for which he is eligible and physically able to play.

This isn’t much news to those of us following the Celtics closely. Hopefully this will allow Patrick O’Bryant or Bill Walker 10 games to show what they’ve got to offer to this team.

I also looked up to see exactly what phentermine was. Apparently it helps with weight loss, so perhaps the new-age ephedra? Not sure why DMiles would need it, but that’s not going to be disclosed to us, obviously.

    He was using diet pills to lose weight. Miles reportedly gained about 30 pounds while he was rehabbing.
    He lost it pretty fast over summer 2007 when trying to come back last fall.
