Hedo Turkoglu has setback with hand, to miss another month

The Orlando Magic are a scrappy team. They are off to a 2-5 start but they are not making it easy on anybody. They just don’t have a lot of firepower and what veterans they can trust have been out — Jameer Nelson for a sixth game in a row Wednesday, for example.

Then there is Hedo Turkoglu, who needed hand surgery and was to be out a month until early December, but now has had a setback and will miss another four weeks, tweets John Denton, team reporter for the Magic’s official Web site.

Hey, rookie coach Jacque Vaughn — welcome to rebuilding in the NBA.

If you want a bright side, this means more minutes for Moe Harkless, who had his best game of the season Tuesday night.
