Orlando Magic point guard Jalen Suggs underwent surgery to repair a slight stress fracture in his right ankle.

Suggs, 20, had the surgery last week, the team said Monday.

"In assessing Jalen's right ankle at the conclusion of the season, and consulting with multiple doctors, we came to the determination to undergo this preventative measure," Magic general manager Jeff Weltman said in a statement.
