First-year point guard Jalen Suggs underwent medical surgery in order to fix a slight stress fracture in his right ankle, the Orlando Magic announced on Monday.

Per Magic, Suggs is expected to heal up, resume his basketball activities this offseason and fully rejoin the team in training camp for the 2022-2023 campaign.
