The veteran small forward fractured the fifth metacarpal during the third quarter of the team's season-opener Friday night.
Turkoglu now has undergone surgery twice in the last seven months. In April, he suffered a broken left cheekbone when he was elbowed accidently in a game. Turkoglu said that injury was the worst of his career, but he secured teammates' respect when he returned to the court three weeks after the procedure.
The Magic are especially short-handed at small forward now.
Turkoglu is a starter, and normally he'd be backed-up by a pair of rookies, 19-year-old Maurice Harkless and 22-year-old DeQuan Jones.
But Harkless underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia over the summer, and although he's recently been cleared for full-contact drills and has participated in recent practices, Jacque Vaughn would prefer to ease the first-round pick back into game situations.
Jones, an undrafted rookie from the University of Miami, is listed as day-to-day because of a strained abductor muscle in one of his hips.
Arron Afflalo, naturally a shooting guard, likely will play extended minutes at the small forward spot.
