Magic can get Hedo Turkoglu back from suspension

Hedo Turkoglu has served his 20 game suspension and can now return to the Orlando Magic's lineup.  He had tested positive for an anabolic steroid called methenolone.  He was suspended as soon as the test results were known, and he served his suspension relatively quietly.  Now, the Magic can have him back, but at this point in the season, does it really matter?

According to Kurt Helin of NBC Sports, the Magic should not give too many minutes to the returning Turkoglu.  He has not been productive this season when on the court.  Helin says the the Magic are better served giving more minutes to their younger players.


And he's right.  Turkoglu was once a productive player in the NBA.  He averaged 11.9 points and 3.1 assists in his career.  However, when he actually played this season, Turkoglu averaged 2.9 points and 2.1 assists per game.  Turkoglu's best season came in 2007-08 when he averaged 19.5 points per game.
