The New York Times reports…

The N.B.A. on Thursday suspended the Orlando Magic All-Star forward Rashard Lewis for 10 games for violating its policy on performance-enhancing drugs, saying he had elevated levels of testosterone.  Lewis said he took an over-the-counter supplement — which he declined to identify — at the end of last season and said he did not believe it contained a banned substance.

Lewis is an 11-year veteran who missed the last three games of the regular season with knee tendinitis. He played in all of the Magic’s postseason games and was the team’s second-leading scorer as it advanced to the N.B.A. finals, where it lost to the Los Angeles Lakers.
