      Celtics' Evan Turner: Questionable to return Friday

      Turner is questionable to return Friday after being poked in the eye, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports. Turner exited the game late in the third quarter. The Celtics owning a comfortable lead could be playing a factor in his questionable status. If he is not able to return, expect and update on his status prior to Boston's next game Sunday in Orlando.

      Celtics' Evan Turner: Sees 32 minutes Sunday

      Turner totaled 13 points (6-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 32 minutes during the Celtics' 111-101 loss versus the Nets on Sunday. Turner has only played 30 minutes in three of the Celtics' 13 games thus far, but with Marcus Smart (knee) out for the next two weeks, it's possible Turner will be asked to play a more prominent role off the bench for a bit. Turner doesn't typically hit three-pointers or block shots, but given minutes he can be a decent source of scoring, rebounds, and assists. The Celtics are back in action on Tuesday versus the Hawks.

      Celtics' Evan Turner: Remains in reserve role

      Turner has played under 25 minutes in the previous four games with the return of Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley. Smart and Bradley have missed a combined five games this season, which thrusted Turner into a larger ball-handling role in the backcourt. Now, with both back healthy, Turner's usage has gone way down. When the former Buckeye plays upwards of 30 minutes, he can be productive across the box score, but he is only reliable for that kind of usage when someone in Boston's backcourt has been ruled out.

      Celtics' Evan Turner: Returning to bench

      Turner will return to a bench role Friday versus the Hawks. Turner moved into the starting lineup in place of Avery Bradley (leg) on Wednesday, but coach Brad Stevens will go with Marcus Smart as the starting shooting guard alongside Isaiah Thomas on Friday. Turner will likely see a slight minutes reduction, but he's still likely to see a fairly significant role off the bench. The Ohio State product is coming off of a 20-point performance Wednesday, and he's scored in double-figures in four straight games.

      Celtics' Evan Turner: Stuffs stat sheet in start

      Turner posted 20 points (9-13 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists, one steal, and two blocks in 33 minutes of action Wednesday against the Pacers. Turner managed to stuff the stat sheet in extended minutes Wednesday, and owners who rode him in daily contests reaped the reward. He's unlikely going to keep this up throughout the season, but he still holds value in deeper leagues.

      Celtics' Evan Turner: Nets 11 points Wednesday

      Turner managed to score 11 points with four rebounds and four assists Wednesday against the Pacers. Turner led the Celtics' bench in scoring Wednesday night through his 21 minutes on the court. Turner started 57 games in 2014-15, but has come off the bench in Boston's first four games this season. He's establishing himself as the team's sixth man with 6.3 points 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. He's not playing as much as he has in the years past and his numbers are reflecting that early on, but he's a scorer worth keeping an eye on down the road if his role happens to increase.

      Celtics F Evan Turner to come off bench in opener

      Celtics small forward Evan Turner will come off the bench Wednesday against the 76ers. Brad Stevens awarded the start to Jae Crowder, who Turner had been competing with for that role throughout camp. The lack of starting role shouldn't provide a major hindrance to Turner's Fantasy value, as he's expected to be the top option off the bench and see plenty of minutes at three different spots in the lineup.

      Celtics' Evan Turner: Flirts with triple-double

      Turner tallied 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and a block in a preseason win over the Nets on Monday. Turner put up some nice counting numbers last season as the point guard for half the season, but will not have the same role this year. With Isiah Thomas and Marcus Smart seemingly taking all the point guard minutes this season, it will be tough for Turner to carve out a distributing or ball-handling role. He should still see plenty of minutes, but won't nearly have the same usage rate.

      Celtics SG Evan Turner puts up 10/5/7 line in win on Wednesday

      Celtcis guard Evan Turner (knee) recorded 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 FT), seven assists, and five rebounds over 25 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Nets. Turner turned in a typically well-rounded box score in his preseason debut, which came after he sustained a right knee strain early in training camp. The Celtics opted to hold Turner out for their European preseason trip just as a precautionary measure, so it wouldn't seem that the knee issue is anything to worry about heading into the regular season. Coach Brad Stevens started Turner at small forward in Wednesday's contest, and it's quite likely he'll fill that role once the season begins, though the presence of Jae Crowder behind him on the depth chart may prevent Turner from seeing more than 30 minutes per night.

      Celtics F Evan Turner set to play Wednesday

      Celtics small forward Evan Turner (knee) has been cleared to play in a preseason game Wednesday against the Nets. A right knee strain kept Turner out, but his return to practice earlier this week now puts him on course to make his preseason debut. It's expected that coach Brad Stevens will deploy him as a starter Wednesday, a role he'll likely assume for the beginning of the regular season. Turner figures to receive frequent time at both wing spots this season and makes for a decent late-round target in Fantasy drafts, given his ability to contribute in scoring, rebounding and assists.
