Ugly Looking Injury For Orlando Magic Guard

 There are ways that one's knee is simply not supposed to bend. Unfortunately this was the case for the Orlando Magic's second-year guard Jalen Suggs in their preseason game against the Dallas Mavericks Friday night. 

Suggs was helped off the floor to the locker room and was putting no weight on his leg after appearing to hyperextend his knee. It happened during a collision with Dorian Finney-Smith, after which Suggs seems to feel he was shoved by Spencer Dinwiddie.

Obviously, this is something no one ever wants to see, especially during a meaningless preseason game.  

Suggs' rookie season last year was also marred by injuries. He suffered a fractured right thumb in November causing him to miss 20 games, then dealt with an ankle injury in March that knocked him out of more action. The No. 5 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, Suggs played only 48 games total on the year, averaging 11.8 points, 4.4 assists and 1.2 steals. 

No word yet on the severity of the knee injury; the Magic will have some imaging done before next steps are determined.
