Indiana Pacers swingman Evan Turner, who missed his team's series-opening win against the Miami Heat on Sunday because of strep throat, will be back in the lineup on Tuesday, according to the Indianapolis Star's Candace Buckner.

Indiana head coach Frank Vogel said after the win that he expected Turner would be ready to go for the next game. It will be interesting to see how much playing time he receives in his return, if any. The Pacers are 3-0 in the postseason when Turner has sat on the sideline, and he's had an abysmal net rating of -16.7 points per 100 possessions in the playoffs, per NBA.com.

Historically he performed well against the Heat as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, and he will give Indiana another ballhandler, but the numbers show he has hurt the Pacers defensively and stalled the offense since arriving in a February trade.
