The NBA has reinstated the Charlotte Hornets security guard, Malik Monk, after he was suspended for violating the League's anti-drug program, reports Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
The 22-year-old had to pause without payment on February 26, two weeks before the closure.
Monk missed a total of eight games while he was banned from the league. This punishment should continue until he adheres to the league's support program for drug-related violations.
Despite the reinstatement, Monk's season is over because the Hornets aren't among the 22 teams that will continue their season at Disney World this summer.
However, reinstatement is not controversial. Monk will be able to join the hornets in mini-camps or formal team events that have not yet been announced. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN wrote last week that teams that did not qualify for Disney World are considering ways to keep their players engaged and active.
