Baskonia provisionally suspends Henry after an anti-doping control


The Cazoo Baskonia has announced this Wednesday the "provisional suspension" of the license of the American point guard Pierriá Henry after carrying out a FIBA ​​anti-doping control that has led the club to open a file, after the athlete did not play the last four matches of the people from Vitoria due to muscular discomfort.

"On the occasion of carrying out a routine anti-doping control on the player Pierriá Henry by the FIBA ​​authorities, FIBA ​​has agreed to open a file on the player and the provisional suspension of his license until its resolution," said the club in a statement.

The Basque team also pointed out that the suspension does not occur because the player has tested positive, but rather "derives from a procedural issue." "Both the filed file and the agreed suspension do not derive from the fact that the player has given a positive result in the anti-doping control for prohibited substances, but rather derives from a procedural matter," he added.

Even so, the people of Vitoria agreed with the player to "temporarily suspend the existing contract" until the file is finalized. "Saski Baskonia and Mr. Pierriá Henry have agreed to temporarily suspend the existing contract between both parties until the conclusion of the aforementioned file and for the duration of said provisional suspension, trusting in a prompt and satisfactory resolution," he concluded.

After joining the club at the end of October, in his second spell wearing the Baskonia jersey, the American became a fundamental piece of the squad. Thus, of the four games that Henry missed since his disputed soleus injury, Baskonia lost three, against Partizán and Barcelona in the Euroleague, and this weekend against Obradoiro in the League.

Immersed in a deep crisis of results after the good end of the year, where he came to lead the Endesa League and the Euroleague, it seems that the Basques will go to the market in search of a point guard to accompany Darius Thompson.
