Magic Guard Jalen Suggs Out for 'Extended Period' With Fractured Thumb

The Magic announced Monday rookie guard Jalen Suggs will be out for "an extended period of time" due to a fractured right thumb. 

Suggs suffered the injury in Monday's loss to the 76ers. 

Orlando drafted Suggs out of Gonzaga with the No. 5 pick in the 2021 NBA draft. He's averaging 12.1 points and 3.5 assists per game, shooting just 33.6% from the field. Suggs found his rhythm of late after a shaky start to the season, finishing with double-digit points in six straight games before Monday night.
