Turris picked up an assist and two hits in Monday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3.
Turris has only two helpers in 12 games since being healthy scratched twice in March. It was a rough year in general for the center, who accumulated only 23 points in 55 games, his worst production since his first full campaign in 2008-09. Injuries accounted for some of his troubles, but he hasn't been good lately and can be avoided for postseason fantasy usage.
Turris (coach's decision) is expected to play Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
Turris has struggled since returning from injury, as he only has four points in 16 games. That led to him getting benched for two contests, likely in an attempt to get him back on track heading into the playoffs. It remains to be seen where he draws back into the lineup should he return, though as Colton Sissons played well in Turris' absence.
Turris (coach's decision) remains out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Sharks, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Turris has clearly landed in the doghouse, as Saturday marks the second straight game he will be sent to the press box. The veteran pivot has also seen his production fall off the table recently, with him tallying just four points since he returned from a lower-body injury Feb. 6. Turris' next chance to rejoin the lineup arrives Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.
Turris will sit as a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Kings, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
Turris hasn't been very productive lately, notching two assists in his last eight games while posting a minus-1 rating over that span, so coach Peter Laviolette is clearly trying to light a fire under the veteran forward by bumping him from the lineup. Turris will likely return to action Saturday against the Sharks.
Turris (undisclosed) won't play Thursday against the Kings, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
This news comes as a complete surprise, as there was no indication that Turris might be in danger of missing Thursday's contest until he didn't take the ice for pregame warmups. The veteran pivot will hope to recover in time for Saturday's matchup with San Jose.
Turris assisted on Filip Forsberg's equalizer in a 3-2 shootout win over the Wild on Sunday.
Turris contributed three shots on goal in the contest. The center has struggled this season with 21 points in 43 games. Turris can still provide value via the man advantage, though, where he has six of his 21 points this year while skating on the top unit.
Turris' first-period goal came on the power play in a 2-1 win over Los Angeles on Thursday.
This year probably hasn't gone the way Turris had hoped due to injuries, but there's still time for him to turn it around. He's hitting on 12.5 percent of his shots, and if that continues, perhaps he'll be able to establish a higher floor offensively. He's at seven goals and 13 assists over 38 games as part of the 2018-19 campaign.
Turris failed to record any significant stats in his return and was a minus-1 against Dallas on Thursday.
Considering Turris was sidelined for the previous 17 games with a lower-body injury, which included extra time off due to the All-Star break, it's not surprising to see him sporting a little rust. The 29-year-old should get his scoring touch back soon and might still have enough time to hit the 30-point mark this season.
The Predators activated Turris (lower body) from injured reserve Thursday.
After more than a month on the shelf, the 29-year-old pivot will finally get an opportunity to improve on his 18 points -- six goals and 12 assists -- through 30 games. Turris should immediately slot into a top-six role for the Preds, as he last served as the team's second-line center.
Turris (lower body) is considered day-to-day and could suit up in Thursday's game against Dallas, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Turris has not seen the ice since Dec. 27 against Dallas, but appears to be nearing a return. The centerman is day-to-day in the sense that he's evaluated on a daily basis, but he is still on injured reserve per the NHL's media site. Turris was able to practice Monday, but will still need the Predators to activate him off IR before he can officially suit up. Once he's healthy enough, Turris will likely reclaim his spot centering the second line with Craig Smith and Kevin Fiala.
Turris (lower body) won't suit up Tuesday against the Coyotes, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
Turris was a full participant in Monday's practice, but he hasn't been deemed ready for game action yet. Colton Sissons will continue centering Nashville's second line with Craig Smith and Kevin Fiala for now, though Turris has a good shot to finally return to the lineup Thursday against Dallas.
Turris (lower body) was a full participant in Monday's practice, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.
Turris did not speak to reporters after practice, but considering he practiced with no limitations, a return to action appears to be around the corner. He's yet to be ruled out of Tuesday's home game versus Arizona. The top-two center last dressed Dec. 27, and in 30 games, has recorded 18 points.
Turris' (lower body) expected return date has been pushed back to early February, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Turris was being evaluated on a regular basis before the team decided to place him on IR on New Year's Day. A perennial power-play contributor, Turris will miss at least the next four games ahead of the All-Star break. Of course, he could be held out even longer given that GM David Poile is only "hopeful" that Turris and Miikka Salomaki (upper body) will return at the beginning of February.
Turris (lower body) has surfaced on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
Assuming the Predators make this move retroactive to Turris' last game, he'll be looking to return this Friday against the Red Wings. However, at this point, it's anyone's guess if the skilled center will be healthy enough to suit up for that road tilt. Nashville scooped Phil Di Giuseppe off waivers Tuesday, padding the team's depth at forward in case Turris can't give it a go.
Turris (lower body) didn't take the ice for warmups ahead of Monday's meeting with Washington and won't be in the lineup, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Turris was scratched from Saturday's home game against the Rangers due to a lower-body injury.
The Predators can't seem to catch a break regarding injuries to their proficient scoring forwards. Filip Forsberg (hand) has missed every game in December, Viktor Arvidsson (thumb) finally returned from a 21-game injury Thursday, and now Turris -- another key power-play contributor -- is banged up. The crafty pivot should be considered day-to-day, at least until the team has a chance to evaluate him closer.
Playing in his first game since Nov. 23, Turris recorded an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win versus Vancouver.
With his assist on Calle Jarnkrok's second-period goal Thursday, Turris now has 12 helpers to go along with five goals in 2018-19. He continues to be somewhat snakebitten in the goal department but has offset that with solid assist production. Another positive from the game was Turris' involvement with Nashville's power play, as the forward finished with 1:29 of ice time in that spot. If he stays healthy, Turris should continue to draw regular shifts with the man advantage.
Turris (upper body) will be in action versus Vancouver on Thursday, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.
In order to clear space for Turris to be activated off injured reserve, the club sent Eeli Tolvanen down to AHL Milwaukee.

Per general manager David Poile, Turris (upper body) could return to game action this week, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports.
Turris returned to practice Monday, albeit in a non-contact capacity, but it sounds like there's a still a chance he'll be cleared to play in time for Thursday's matchup with Vancouver. The Predators and fantasy owners will both hope that ends up being the case, as Turris has been pretty productive when healthy this season, notching five goals and 16 points in 23 appearances. Another update on the veteran forward's status should surface following Thursday's morning skate.
Turris (upper body) could be back in the lineup soon after telling Adam Vingan of The Athletic, "I'd say I'm pretty close."
Turris took part in Monday's practice session sporting a non-contact sweater, per Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site, which means he likely won't be ready in time for Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa. The center -- who has missed the previous seven games -- should slot back into a second-line role once given the all-clear to play.
