Because Orlando needs more drama right now…
Chris Duhon has been suspended by the Magic for Monday night’s game for a reason usually reserved for college players — conduct unbecoming to the team. That is the report from the Orlando Sentinel.
“Chris had some personal issues that came up and he had to take care of that,” said Duhon’s agent, Kevin Bradbury. “But he’s got everything on the right track now.”
Duhon was not at the team shootaround Monday and reportedly was late to a recent practice as well.
Duhon joins both Dwight Howard (back) and Hedo Turkoglu (facial surgery) on the sidelines for the Magic game against the Pistons. Normally you’d say “it’s just the Pistons” but with all those players missing and the Magic slumping this game becomes a lot more interesting.
Look for Ish Smith to get some run tonight for the Magic. If not that, maybe Stan Van Gundy puts on a jersey — we know the guy has handles.
