Arizona star Allonzo Trier reportedly failed PED test, can't return until it's out of his system entirely

Arizona's Trier tested positive for PED

According to Goodman's report, Trier failed a random drug test in September before getting the results in early October.

Trier's season, however, is not necessarily over. As of now, Trier has no timetable to return and appears to be at the mercy of whenever the drug decides to clear his system. However, the drug has to be completely out of his system before he can play, reports Goodman. The levels of the unspecified drug has reportedly decreased.

Trier has reportedly been cleared by the NCAA to return, but can not play until the substance is entirely out of his system. He shot 47 percent overall and 36 percent from three while getting to the foul stripe 5.4 times per game and shooting 79 percent there.

The 6-foot-5 Trier, who came to Arizona as the marquee player in coach Sean Miller's recruiting class, had a strong freshman season, averaging 14.8 points.

The Wildcats also have played without forward Ray Smith, whose preseason ACL injury ended with his retirement from basketball.

It remains unclear when or if he will play for Arizona at all this season. While Trier waits for the drug to pass through, he's been allowed to practice and travel with the team.

Trier released the following statement after ESPN reported that he won an appeal of a positive PED test.

Arizona is 16-2 without the sophomore guard. His eligibility remained in question throughout the non-conference schedule as he was allowed to travel with the team, but not dress for games. He appealed to the NCAA and was ultimately cleared, however, Trier can not play again until the PED has completely cleared his system. If Trier is able to make it back at any point this season, he would give an added boost to a Wildcats team that has lost their two games by a combined 11 points.
