Turner (hand) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Magic. Turner has missed the last two games after suffering an avulsion fracture in his right hand. The 24-year-old had also been considered questionable for Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks, but ended up being ruled out.
Turner (hand) is unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports. The 24-year-old was considered questionable after being diagnosed with an avulsion fracture in his right hand Tuesday, and he'll miss at least one game as a result. Turner doesn't need surgery and should be considered day-to-day, with his next chance to take the court coming Friday versus the Magic.
Turner (hand) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks. Turner is day-to-day with an avulsion fracture in his right hand, and it's possible he plays as soon as Wednesday after missing Sunday's contest against the Clippers. His defense has reached a new level this season, as he's averaging 4.2 blocks per game across 31.7 minutes. If he's out again Wednesday, it's likely the team will opt to go small for a second straight contest, giving more minutes to T.J. McConnell, Doug McDermott and Edmond Sumner.
The Pacers announced Tuesday that Turner is considered day-to-day with an avulsion fracture in his right hand that won't require surgery. According toJ. Michael of The Indianapolis Star, Turner was a full practice participant Tuesday, suggesting the injury isn't considered significant. The 24-year-old center has missed one game so far due to the injury, and he could still be at risk of missing Wednesday's contest against the Mavericks. Doug McDermott entered the starting five in Turner's stead in Sunday's blowout loss to the Clippers, posting 23 points, two assists and one rebound in 32 minutes.
Turner was diagnosed Tuesday with slight fracture in his right hand, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. He'll be "re-evaluated in the coming days" before the Pacers update his timeline for his return. Turner was held out of Sunday's blowout loss to the Clippers due to the injury, and, based on Charania's report, it's likely safe to rule him out for Wednesday's game versus Dallas and perhaps additional contests to follow. The 24-year-old center is off to an excellent start this season, averaging an NBA-best 4.2 blocks per game. With Turner sidelined against the Clippers, Domantas Sabonis shifted over to center, while Goga Bitadze cracked the rotation as the backup option at the position.
