The Orlando Magic has been one of the most surprising teams this year. The Magic are currently sitting in 3rd position in the Eastern Conference, and all credit goes to the squad. Players like Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner have led the Magic.
However, the role of players like Jalen Suggs has also been crucial for the Orlando Magic. But Suggs has been listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, which he got in the last game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. So, will he be playing tonight against the Detroit Pistons?
Orlando Magic Injury Update: Jalen Suggs Ruled Out Against the Detroit Pistons

Initial fears of an Achilles injury for Jalen Suggs… however mechanisms suggest this is just a high ankle sprain (grade 3) which is best case for himself and the magic #magic #nba pic.twitter.com/FQl0tolykm

Besides Banchero and Wagner, Suggs has contributed a lot to the Magic’s success. Jalen Suggs has suffered a right ankle strain against the Cleveland Cavaliers due to which he was listed as questionable against the Pistons for Friday night’s match.
However, the latest injury report suggests he will not be available against the Detroit Pistons.
Can Cole Anthony Carry the Orlando Magic Without Jalen Suggs vs. the Pistons?
The Orlando Magic should not be worried about playing against the Detroit Pistons, as the Pistons are a horrible team this season. They are playing woefully and not performing up to the expectations.
The Pistons are currently sitting at 15th in the Eastern Conference with a woeful record of 2-19.
But since Markelle Fultz is already out of the game due to a knee injury, Cole Anthony is the only responsible remaining player on the Orlando Magic’s roster. Anthony will have a lot of pressure on his shoulders against the Detroit Pistons.
