Former Michigan standout Mitch McGary will have to wait longer for a return to the court.
According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, McGary has been suspended an additional 10 games for “a failure to live up to procedural guidelines set forth in the program,” Wojnarowski’s league sources told him.
McGary had already been suspended for five games back in July for violation of the league’s drug policy.

McGary was the 21st overall pick in the 2014 draft by the Oklahoma City Thunder. He would have returned to Michigan for his junior season, but a failed drug test would have suspended him while he was still with the Wolverines. So he went pro.
The former Wolverine averaged 6.3 points per game as a rookie. This past season, he played in only 20 games and averaged 1.3 points per game.
According to Wojnarowski, the Thunder are trying to trade McGary.
