Turner collected 15 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes in Sunday's 130-114 win over the Rockets.

Turner's sluggish start to the season made him an early drop candidate in many leagues, but the veteran swingman seems to be settling in with his new organization and should begin to warrant more attention if he's out there on the waiver wire. Over the Blazers' last five games, he's displaced Allen Crabbe as coach Terry Stotts' most reliable contributor off the bench, averaging 13.8 points (on 50% shooting), 3.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 three-pointer in 27.0 minutes per contest. So long as Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) remains sidelined, Turner should have an opportunity to see more run at forward, which will certainly aid his chances of maintaining this level of production.
