Deandre Ayton has been suspended for 25 games for violating the NBA drug policy for testing positive for the use of a diuretic.
This is huge news for the fantasy landscape to lose a high-end asset for a large chunk of the year. Woj followed up by confirming that the NBPA is already preparing an arbitration case for Ayton. It doesn't look great and fantasy owners should look at contingency plans. On the Suns, that contingency is probably some combination of Frank Kaminsky and Aron Baynes, who will try and fail to mimic Ayton's production.
