Turner totaled 11 points (2-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 win over the Nets. Turner matched his season high in rebounding while posting his sixth double-double through 42 appearances in 2017-18. Having contributed 15 double-doubles in 81 appearances last year as a sophomore and four through 60 games as a rookie in 2015-16, it's safe to say this season has been a struggle for the third-year center. Nevertheless, half of his double-doubles this year have taken place during the last seven games, so perhaps Turner is finally starting to trend upward.
Turner scored 19 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT) while adding seven rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes during Friday's 97-91 win over the Celtics. After playing through a sore knee and scoring only six points total in the last two games, Turner looked more like his usual self Friday. The young center has dealt with multiple injuries this season, missing 16 games already after playing in 81 in 2016-17, but when he's healthy he continues to demonstrate why he's a key part of the Pacers' present and future.
Turner (knee) scored six points (2-5 FG, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and one block across 23 minutes during Monday's 111-102 loss to the Wizards. Turner struggled through a knee issue that's bothered him over the last few days and was passive at both ends of the floor. He also got on foul trouble, which could partially explain his reduced workload, but he's averaged a paltry three points, four rebounds and 19 minutes played over the last two games. Turner could be reassessed by the training staff in the coming days, but his fantasy value will seemingly suffer as long as he's limited by the ailment.
Turner (knee) will play Monday against the Wizards. While the Pacers will be without their starting backcourt, the good news is that Turner has been removed from the injury report after battling a sore right knee over the past few days. The ailment limited him to just 15 minutes during Saturday's game against the 76ers, so he's a bit of a risky DFS play given the presumed risk that he could again aggravate the knee.
Turner is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Wizards with a sore right knee. Turner cropped up on the Pacers' injury report ahead of both of the past two games with the same issue, but ultimately suited up for both ends of the team's back-to-back set Friday in Charlotte and Saturday at home against the 76ers. In the game against Philadelphia, however, Turner was rendered ineffective, scoring no points (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and grabbing three rebounds in 15 minutes before giving way to Domantas Sabonis at center for much of the contest. It's unclear if the sore knee contributed to Turner's poor performance, but the Pacers will presumably reassess the 21-year-old's condition at morning shootaround Monday before reaching a ruling on his status. If Turner is ruled out for the contest, Sabonis would reenter the starting five and would be in store for a sizable workload.
