Turner collected 18 points (7-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assists across 28 minutes in Tuesday's 131-97 win over the Suns. Turner returned from a shoulder injury after missing the last four contests, and picked up where he left off, shooting well over 50 percent on the night. The rebounds should continue to increase once he gets healthier and back into the flow of things, and the minutes will climb up with time as well.
Updating a previous note, Turner (shoulder) will be available Tuesday against the Suns, Pat Boyland of Fox Sports Indiana reports. Turner has missed the last four games with a sore shoulder, but he's been officially removed from the injury report and will likely be back in the starting five, replacing Domantas Sabonis at center. Over his last eight games before the injury, Turner was averaging 15.9 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 3.3 blocks.
Turner (shoulder) is planning on playing Tuesday against the Suns, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports. Turner has been sidelined for the last four games due to shoulder soreness, but the big man is optimistic that he'll manage to take the court Tuesday evening. Expect confirmation on his status closer to tip. If for some reason Turner is held out, Domantas Sabonis would draw another start.
Turner (shoulder) is listed as questionable heading into Tuesday's matchup against Phoenix. Turner has been inactive for four straight games due to nerve-related pain in his right shoulder. Participating in practice Sunday however, Turner may be able to make in his return when the Pacers host the Suns on Tuesday and will presumably be a game-time decision.
Turner (shoulder) went through practice Sunday, Scott Agness of The Athetic reports. Turner hasn't played in more than a week, but he appears to be moving in the right direction, as Sunday marked his first practice since he began dealing with nerve-related pain in his right shoulder. For now, the big man should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game against Phoenix.
