Hedo Türkoğlu injury: Magic forward to return against Raptors, according to report

Hedo Türkoğlu - Rob Carr

The veteran forward will likely return from a 28-game absence on Saturday against Toronto.

Injuries have beset the Orlando Magic in recent weeks, but the team is due to receive good news on that front soon. John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports that Hedo Türkoğlu, who has missed Orlando's last 28 games with a broken left hand, will return to the lineup Saturday against the Toronto Raptors, his former team.

Türkoğlu travelled to the nation's capital for Friday's Magic loss to the Washington Wizards, which fact is notable because Türkoğlu had not attended road games with the team.

Türkoğlu first broke his hand in Orlando's season-opening victory against the Denver Nuggets as he fouled Denver forward Danilo Gallinari. He underwent surgery the next day, but suffered a setback in his recovery when he learned one of the screws placed in his hand had come loose.

Maurice Harkless is entrenched as the Magic's starting small forward, which position was Türkoğlu's when the season began. It's unclear how Türkoğlu's return might affect coach Jacque Vaughn's rotation, which remains in flux after the injury to Glen Davis, Orlando's most prolific offensive player.
