Sportando is reporting that the World Anti-Doping Agency decided to suspend Grizzlies point guard Nick Calathes 4 months for his failed drug test which yielded a 20 game suspension from the NBA. However, the suspension started on the 18th of April which means it will be completed on the 18th of August. With the FIBA World Cup starting at the very end of August, this means that Calathes will be able to compete for Greece in the world-wide basketball event in Spain.
