G - ORL - DTD
According to the NBA Injury Report, Jalen Suggs (ankle) has been ruled out Sunday vs. the Heat.
The Magic will be without Wendell Carter, Cole Anthony, Jalen Suggs, and Franz Wagner on Sunday for their season finale. The absences of both Suggs and Anthony at guard should see Hampton and Fultz start and see 26 or more minutes each. With both Wagner and Carter out of the lineup, it clears the way for Mo Bamba to see more minutes, Mo Wagner and Ignas Brazdeikis to start.
Magic G Jalen Suggs left in the first quarter of Thursday's game in Charlotte with an undisclosed injury as reported by Sports Illustrated's Brett Siegel.
Jalen Suggs and teammate C Mo Bamba both left the Magic bench and headed back to the locker room during the 1st quarter of Thursday's game against the Hornets. Both players were dealing with apparent injuries, but no word yet on nature or extent of the injuries.
According to the Magic PR team, Jalen Suggs (ankle) is available to play Tuesday vs. the Cavaliers.
The Magic will get back both Jalen Suggs and Mo Wagner tonight after each have been dealing with ankle injuries. Their returns to the lineup should hurt freshly signed Devin Cannady.
Jalen Suggs has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday’s game against Cleveland according to the Orlando Sentinel’s Khobi Price.
Suggs has missed the last ten games but is upgraded to questionable for the first time since injuring his ankle March 13 against Philadelphia. If Suggs does return Tuesday, he will most likely be held to around 20 minutes or so to ease him back in. Orlando, having been eliminated, could still opt to sit the rookie the final three games. Check back closer to tipoff Tuesday.
Jalen Suggs (ankle) is unavailable to play in Sunday's game against the New York Knicks.
Suggs has missed a few weeks now because of the bone bruise in his ankle, and it's still unknown if he will see the court at all for the rest of this season. In his absence, R.J. Hampton should continue to see the start for Orlando.
