Orlando soap opera continues: Magic suspends Duhon for game

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.

      Did you just say your conduct is detrimental to the team also? lol

    Former Duke player with zero class.

    This means he was drunk. No joke, back in the day if there was a Bulls game the next evening, you were guaranteed to see Duhon frolicking about Lincoln Park’s finer establishments the night before. The kid could put them away.

    Great story Kurt lol. Duhon is the backup PG, thanks for reporting this garbage. I’m a magic fan and can live without duhon. Ish is more effective anyway… That shot at Stan was cheesy Kurt. Get a new career

    He didn’t report to shoot around andwas late to practice. No call no show = suspension sop.
