It’s been two weeks since Suggs has returned from a thumb injury that sidelined him for a month and a half starting back in December, and since his return he’s been playing perhaps the best basketball of his rookie season so far.
The Magic have only gone 2-4 since he’s been back, but you can see how Suggs is positively impacting the game on both ends of the floor for Orlando. In the month of January he’s averaging three assists a night, which is his highest monthly average of the season so far. 3 View Profile
In my most recent piece on the Rookie of the Year race, I mentioned that while Barnes isn’t getting as much burn as a scorer since the Raptors have everyone back healthy, he’s been impacting the game in other ways.
