Hedo Turkoglu-G/F - Magic
Last Updated: 10 Jan, 03:35 PM
Officially, Hedo Turkoglu's contribution to the Orlando Magic's loss to the Denver Nuggets is listed as "Did Not Play — Coach's Decision."
Turkoglu indeed didn't play, but the decision not to put him into the game at least had as much to do with his troublesome left hand than his recent rusty performances.
Turkoglu said after the game that a decision was made — with his complete agreement — to hold him out to protect his hand, which was fractured Nov. 2, repaired surgically Nov. 3 and, according to Turkoglu, still isn't fully healed.
