Myles Turner (broken nose) did not have to go through the NBA's concussion protocol, and while he sat out of Wednesday's practice he's hoping to practice on Thursday and play on Friday.
Turner's surgery to repair his nose took only 10 minutes and he'll be fitted for a mask today. It looks like owners have dodged a major bullet here, as Turner was a top-15 (9-cat) player in the month of December. As long as no concussion symptoms pop up, we're expecting him to miss very little, if any, time and just play with a mask.
