The Magic said Friday that Hedo Turkoglu has a broken nose and will try to play with a protective mask on Sunday in Houston when the clubs faces the Rockets.
Turkoglu was injured Thursday night in a 100-76 loss to the Chicago Bulls at Amway Arena. He left the game in the second quarter and did not return, finishing with just two points in almost 14 minutes.
He will be fitted in Houston for a mask similar to the one worn by Piston Richard Hamilton. It will be a game-time decision whether Turkoglu will play against the Rockets.
I know he isn't the Dwight Howard of the team. But i just felt he was really in good form lately, im hoping this face mask doesn't slow him down. We could really use him down the stretch.
What do you guys think.
Will he slump now, or continue his solid play?
