Turner will receive a second medical opinion for his sore left foot, and he won't play Monday against the Clippers, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports. Turner has averaged only 9.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.8 blocks while shooting 42.3 percent from the field over the past six games, and he's now being evaluated for a foot injury. The 25-year-old will miss at least one game, and Domantas Sabonis and Oshae Brissett should split time at center in his absence.
Turner ended Wednesday's 119-100 loss to the Celtics with 18 points (8-14 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 24 minutes. Turner led the Pacers in scoring on a dysfunctional night for the franchise. Turner is mired in a 1-for-16 slump from deep over his past five games. Ultimately, shooting 19.4 percent from deep and 65.0 percent from the free-throw line. Another tough task awaits when the Suns come to town Friday.
Turner notched 14 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist, five blocks and one steal across 31 minutes during Wednesday's 129-121 loss to the Nets. Turner managed only five points in the front half of the back-to-back set Tuesday against the Knicks, but he responded with a solid showing across the board Wednesday. The big man should continue to be a consistent provider of points, rebounds and blocks for fantasy managers.
Turner managed just five points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 104-94 loss to the Knicks. Turner battled early foul trouble and was never able to find his groove in the loss. Despite this performance, Turner remains an elite fantasy option in just about every format, thanks primarily to his 2.8 blocks per game. Managers will simply have to let this one slide and hope for a more dignified effort against the Nets on Wednesday.
Turner finished Sunday's 108-104 loss to Cleveland with 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals across 37 minutes. With nine -double-doubles on the season, Turner's synergy with Domanta sSabonis is much-improved from seasons past, as both big men have shown the ability to amass decent totals together. While the veteran's numbers have remained somewhat consistent over his seven-year career, the correlation between him and Sabonis has eased somewhat, allowing both players to have a powerful fantasy impact.
