The No. 5 overall pick will be sidelined out of 'precautionary measures.'

The Orlando Magic are taking the precautionary approach with their top Draft pick.

Jalen Suggs will miss the remainder of MGM Resorts 2021 NBA Summer League after an MRI confirmed a sprained left thumb.

The injury occurred during Thursday’s loss to the Boston Celtics. Suggs played 11 minutes and registered six points, two rebounds and two steals before exiting.

Jalen Green, another top-five pick in the 2021 draft, is also likely to miss the rest of Summer League due to a hamstring injury.

Suggs impressed during his first taste of Summer League, recording 24 points, nine boards, three blocks and two steals in his debut.
