Sports log: NBA suspends Hedo Turkoglu for steroids


Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu was suspended 20 games by the NBA on Wednesday after testing positive for methenolone, an anabolic steroid. He began serving the suspension Wednesday night as the Magic hosted the Hawks. Turkoglu took full responsibility for the positive test and apologized to the Magic and their fans. He said he took medication from a trainer in Turkey last summer to help him recover from a shoulder injury and neglected to check it against the NBA’s banned list. General manager Rob Hennigan said Turkoglu informed the team of the positive test last week. Turkoglu sat out the past three games for what the Magic said were flu-like symptoms and a sore back. Hennigan said those ailments were legitimate and unrelated to the positive test . . .
