Magic Get Update On Point Guard's Knee Injury

The Orlando Magic may have dodged a huge bullet. Results of imaging on the hyperextended knee of guard Jalen Suggs show that he avoided the worst-case scenarios.

NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports that it was a left knee capsule sprain and bone bruise, and a timeline for his return will depend on his response to treatment. It certainly could have been a lot worse, however, from looking at the way his knee was bent on the play:

Suggs was helped off the court without putting any weight on his knee. 

The second-year PG joins another Magic guard, Markelle Fultz, on the team's list of injured players. Fultz is out indefinitely with a broken toe.

Suggs was the No. 5 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, and had his first season cut short with injury was well, suffering both a fractured thumb and an ankle injury. He averaged 11.8 points and 4.4 assists in 48 games.
