Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu was eligible to play for the first time in 20 games on Wednesday night after serving his suspension for violating the league’s anti-doping policy, but head coach Jacque Vaughn elected not to play him anyway. Vaughn decided last week that he wants the younger guys to see extended minutes, which means guys like Turkoglu and Al Harrington won’t likely play.
