On Friday, the NBA announced they were suspending Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu one game with pay for making contact with an official in Thursday’s night win over the Chicago Bulls.
Turkoglu argued that he was fouled on a layup attempt late in the fourth quarter and put both hands on NBA referee Karl Lane.
Turkoglu will miss Sunday’s home game against the Indiana Pacers.
He finished Thursday’s game with 13 points, six rebounds and six assists.
