Magic say Suggs won’t need surgery on thumb

NBA

Orlando Magic rookie Jalen Suggs will not need surgery on his fractured right thumb and will be reevaluated every two weeks before a decision is made on his return to the court, the team said Tuesday.

Per the Magic, Suggs’ return “will ultimately depend on the healing of the bone.”

Suggs fractured the thumb during Monday night’s 101-96 loss at the Philadelphia 76ers.

The fifth overall pick in this year’s draft out of Gonzaga, he has been a bright spot for the four-win Magic, averaging 12.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 21 games.
