Orlando Magic guard Jalen Suggs has sustained a left knee capsule sprain and bone bruise, but there’s relief he avoided a more serious injury, sources told ESPN on Saturday.

Suggs’ timeline on a return will depend on response to treatment, sources said.

Suggs was helped off the court and into the locker room after a collision with DallasDorian Finney-Smith in a preseason loss on Friday night before undergoing evaluation.

The fifth overall pick in the 2021 draft had his rookie season interrupted by a fractured right thumb. He averaged 11.8 points and 4.4 assists in 48 games.

Orlando is already without point guard Markelle Fultz, who is out indefinitely due to a fractured left big toe suffered before training camp.

ESPN’s Tim MacMahon contributed to this report.
