Magic Injury News: Hedo Turkoglu Suffers Setback

Hedo Turkoglu's broken hand will keep him out longer than expected.  He had an X-Ray that revealed an issue that will require his hand to be re-casted and will push his timetable for return back.  Of course, Turkoglu is not happy, and the Magic have to be disappointed.

According to John Denton of, a screw was loose in Turkoglu's surgically repaired hand.

The Magic are playing their first season in recent memory without Dwight Howard.  He was traded in a blockbuster deal that sent him to the Los Angeles Lakers.  They need players like Turkoglu to help fill the void.  Unfortunately, it seems they will be without Turkoglu for quite some time now.

Turkoglu has averaged 12.0 points per game in his career to go along with 42. rebounds and 3.1 assists.  He is making a little over $11.8 million this season and is due to make over $13 million next season.  Turkoglu's best year came in the 2007-08 season.  He averaged 17.5 points per game that year.
