Turner contributed six points (2-8 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds, and a blocked shot across 30 minutes in Tuesday's 112-111 loss to the Bucks. Turner has really stepped up his distribution lately, recording at least five assists in each of the past four games. This was the first game during that stretch where he failed to score double-digit points, so his increased scoring production combined with the recent uptick in assists could make Turner worth a look in deeper formats.
Turner had 19 points (8-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists and a block in 32 minutes on Friday in a win against the Cavaliers. Turner has been logging a great deal of minutes for the Celtics lately, and deservedly so. The 12 rebounds on Friday were a season-high for Turner and he was also one point shy of matching his best total on the year. Jae Crowder is a little banged up right now, and should he miss an extended amount of time, Turner would become a must-start in nearly every fantasy format. As of now, there is no question that Turner should be on your season-long roster.
Turner recorded his second double-double of the season in Tuesday's 97-89 win against the Knicks, registering 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-2 FT) with 10 rebounds while adding four assists and three steals during 29 minutes. Turner has now scored in double figures in seven of his past eight games and had a big night off the bench on the boards. He's averaging 28 minutes per game over the last five and should keep that up so long as he continues to play good ball. Turner is especially valuable in daily formats since his price never really gets unfavorable.
Turner had 14 points (7-11 FG) with six assists, four rebounds and two steals in a win against Denver on Wednesday. Turner continues to be a key ingredient in the Celtics' rotation, and on Wednesday, he scored double-digit points for the fifth straight game. Turner will help you across the board in every statistical category, but coming off the bench certainly limits his fantasy production. Turner's minutes are trending in the right direction in the last three games and he'll look to make it six straight games with double-digit points on Friday against Orlando.
Turner scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-5 FT) with five rebounds and three assists over 29 minutes in Monday's 116-91 win against the Wizards. The Celtics back court is as healthy as it has been all season, but that hasn't stunted Turner's production one bit. He's scored in double figures the past four games and is averaging nearly 25 minutes per game in his last five. Turner is also shooting a high percentage from the field while contributing nicely in both rebounds and assists.
