Pacers' Myles Turner: Agrees to extension with Indiana
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turner (ankle) agreed to a four-year, $72 million extension with the Pacers on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

This was a no-brainer move for the Pacers, as Turner, when healthy, has shown that he's the prototypical center for the modern NBA. Turner is coming off a career-best season from behind the arc, making 35.7 percent of his threes while attempting over two per game, and he has proven in back-to-back seasons that he is a legitimate floor spacer in the frontcourt. The main concern for Turner right now is health, as he only appeared in 65 games last season, but it isn't a large enough concern where the Pacers wouldn't consider locking up the big man for the next four seasons. Turner, however, did tweak his left ankle during practice Monday, but he is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Pacers' Myles Turner: Tweaks ankle, but expects to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turner tweaked his left ankle during Monday's practice, but indicated he doesn't expect the setback to prevent him from playing in Wednesday's season opener against the Grizzlies, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

The ankle issue prevented Turner from practicing over the weekend, but he took part in most of Monday's session before sitting out near the end. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like Turner's health took a major turn for the worse, though it wouldn't be surprising if he taped up the ankle during the Pacers' first few contests of the season. Turner is slated to open the campaign as the Pacers' starting center, but he could be at risk of ceding more minutes to Domantas Sabonis as matchups dictate. Coach Nate McMillan seems resistant to playing the two big men together extensively due to the spacing and defensive issues the arrangement presents.

Pacers' Demetrius Denzel-Dyson: Joins Indiana
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Denzel-Dyson signed a contract with the Pacers on Saturday and will be assigned to the G-League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants, J. Michael of Indy Star Sports reports.

Undrafted this season, Denzel-Dyson will get an opportunity to prove himself in the G-League. During his senior year at Samford, he was voted onto the All-SoCon Second Team with averages of 15.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 30.8 minutes. He was excellent from beyond the arc, hitting 2.5 threes per tilt at 42.1 percent.

Pacers' Myles Turner: Doesn't practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turner did not practice Saturday due to an ankle injury, J. Michael of Indy Star Sports reports.

There's been no concern expressed that Turner's ankle injury is serious, but he's in too much discomfort to practice Saturday. He'll have plenty of time to recover before the Pacers' opener Wednesday against the Grizzlies, but Turner should tentatively be considered questionable until more information is available.

Pacers' Doug McDermott: Yet to fire in preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDermott had only two points to go with five rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 104-89 preseason loss to Chicago.

McDermott continued his preseason struggles Wednesday, scoring just two points and adding very little else. His contract is not looking like a good one at this point for the Pacers and he will need to find some form moving into the regular season if he is to prove he is worth the money he is being paid. McDermott is one of the more one-dimensional fantasy players around and has very little value outside of perimeter scoring, and that in itself can be sketchy at times.
