Doping Scandal[edit]

He has tested positive for the banned substance Nandrolone and has been suspended from the FIBA SuproLeague with immediate effect.

Serkan tested positive in his "A" urine sample, which revealed a level of Nandrolone (anabolic androgenic steroids) above the limits specified in FIBA's doping controls. The positive test, which was carried out by the responsible FIBA body, came after Ulker's home game on 7 December 2000, against Panathinaikos.

Serkan has the right to request a second analysis using his "B" sample, which will be carried out at the same laboratory that analysed the "A"" sample.
