The NBA is hoping to make a deal with the NBPA soon to add HGH testing to its drug testing program.
HGH as a performance enhancing drug has been squarely in the crosshairs with Major League Baseball and the National Football League worried about their athletes testing positive for this banned substance. What makes it so tough is that the only way currently to test for it is by a blood test. And so, many players' associations have resisted adding it to the panel of drugs.
Leagues are getting more serious about testing for HGH and cracking down on performance enhancing drugs. The Ryan Braun suspension and saga in baseball certainly seems to be a sign that leagues are getting serious. MLB suspended Braun for the remainder of the season (60-plus games) after he got off on a technicality the first time. The reports are that Braun agreed to accept his penalty without appeal to avoid even harsher penalties.
