Hedo Turkoglu Set To Return Thursday, Could Play Wednesday

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu, who has not played since being inadvertently hit with a Carmelo Anthony elbow on April 5, looks like he is going to play in Thursday’s season finale in Memphis and could even play Wednesday night when the Magic host the Charlotte Bobcats.

Turkoglu, who has missed the last nine games, is averaging 10.7 points, 4.5 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game. He’s shooting just 41.1% from the field, the third-lowest number of his career.

    Do you think Hedo will become the focal point when he comes back?

  • Howard the Dunk

    No, I expect Ryan, Baby and Nelson will get more shots , but he’ll give Jameer a big break handling the ball

  • Nick Beckwith

    Glen-Center, Ryno-PF, J-Rich-SF, Jameer-SG, Hedo-PG… nah I’m just kidding.
