More on this storyline

Joining Suggs at practice on Tuesday was Magic point guard Markelle Fultz, who continues to hit milestones in his rehab process from a devastating ACL injury in his left knee. Although Fultz’s return is not considered imminent, Suggs could potentially play as soon as the backend of the Magic’s upcoming road trip, depending on how he responds to practice sessions. How his thumb responds to constantly catching, handling, and shooting the ball will factor into the speed of his return. -via NBA.com / January 11, 2022
