Orlando Magic loses Jalen Suggs to broken thumb

Orlando Magic rookie Jalen Suggs broke his right thumb in Monday night’s 101-196 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers and will be out for an extended period of time, the team said.

Suggs will travel back to Orlando, Florida, to have the thumb reassessed before there is a clear timetable for his return, but he is expected to miss several weeks.

The guard had 17 points before leaving the game for good in the second half with an injury.

Suggs, the fifth overall pick in this year’s draft out of Gonzaga, was a bright spot for the Magic with four wins, averaging 12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 20 games.
