NBA players are subject to six random tests each season and offseason — four during the season and two in the offseason. They may also be subject to “reasonable cause testing,” triggered when an independent expert decides there’s reasonable cause to test a player for a banned substance.
That player is then subject to four extra random tests over a six-week span.
