20-Game Suspension Over for Turkoglu
On one hand, Hedo Turkoglu’s nightmare has ended. The 20-game suspension he received for a positive anabolic steroid test has expired, and he will be in uniform when the Orlando Magic face the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.
On the other hand, he also knows and accepts that the season’s final 11 games and the upcoming offseason could be equally difficult. He might not play at all, and it would make financial sense for the Magic to waive him over the summer.
“I just have to wait and see what happens,” Turkoglu said Tuesday, before the Magic left for Charlotte.
