Magic’s Hedo Turkoglu Returning Soon
Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu says his left hand is feeling “much better,” and he participated fully when the Orlando Magic did some fullcourt scrimmaging during practice Saturday at Amway Center. It’s unclear when the 33-year-old small forward will play again, but it seems that time is nearing.
Turkoglu broke the hand Nov. 2 and underwent surgery the next day. Although he played in five Magic games from Dec. 29 through Jan. 7, his hand continued to bother him, and he felt it hindered his play. He has missed Orlando’s last eight games as he’s waited for his hand to improve.
“I’m feeling much better,” Turkoglu said today. “My hand’s about to be 100 percent soon, so I feel more confidence and, hopefully, that will carry on for my playing, too. So far, I’ve been doing whatever it takes to put myself in the best situation I can. I’m just trying to wait for that situation and hopefully soon that will happen and I’ll be 100 percent.”
