    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) was upgraded from probable to available for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    This confirms that Turner will suit up tonight. He's not particularly useful in fantasy unless he gets more than the 22 minutes per night he received last season.

    Evan Turner, who has dealt with left Achilles pain, has been labeled as probable to play on Wednesday.

    This has been a nagging issue for Turner but does not seem too serious. Turner doesn't carry much fantasy appeal as a reserve for the Hawks.

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) is probable for Wednesday's preseason game against the Knicks.

    Turner is going to be a jack-of-all-trades type bench player for the Hawks this season, seeing time at the 1-3 spots. The fast-paced nature of the Hawks system gives him some value, but he isn't someone to target in standard-leagues.

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) has been upgraded to available for Monday's preseason game.

    Look for Turner to log minutes on the wings and at backup point guard for the Hawks this season. Perhaps his usage tonight will give us some new information, but barring an unexpectedly large role there's no fantasy value here outside of 20-teamers.

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) is listed as probable for Monday's preseason matchup with the Heat.

    Turner returned to practice on Friday and will get right back to competing for backup point guard minutes. His versatility should come in handy for the Hawks but as a veteran on a rebuilding team, he figures to have minimal fantasy value.

    Evan Turner (left Achilles) was able to return to practice on Friday.

    Turner is in the running for Atlanta's backup point guard spot, so this is a good development for his playing time prospects. We'd still rather pursue players like DeAndre' Bembry, De'Andre Hunter or Cam Reddish off the Hawks bench for deep-league fantasy purposes.

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) and Chandler Parsons (load management) have been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Turner's injury is a new one and one that hasn't come with a lot of adverse reports, so we'll assume he'll be good for opening night. The Hawks aren't going to take any chances with Parsons' injury history. Neither is on the fantasy radar.

    Evan Turner (left Achilles pain) has been ruled out of Monday's preseason game versus the Pelicans.

    Turner was acquired in a trade during the offseason for Kent Bazemore and will look to provide some veteran leadership to this young Hawks team. This is the first we are hearing about the Achilles soreness, so at this point assume Turner will be ready for opening night.

    Evan Turner will be traded to the Hawks in exchange for Kent Bazemore.

    Turner will give the Hawks some added playmaking in the second unit, though he is unlikely to play a big-minute role with all of the youth that Atlanta wants to develop. He's set to make $18.6 million in the final year of his deal, while Bazemore was slated for $19.3 million, so the Hawks will open up a little more room to spend in the upcoming year — at least in terms of real dollars. This opens up minutes for players like Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish while giving the Hawks someone who can capably give them backup PG minutes.

    Evan Turner scored the second most points for the Blazers on Sunday with 14 (3-of-7 shooting), adding seven rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Turner has not made a lot of noise in this series, but with Rodney Hood dealing with a hyperextended left knee, he will need to step up for the Blazers and provide ball handling and distribution when the starting backcourt sits.

    Evan Turner (rest) sat out Wednesday's game against the Kings to end his tumultuous 2018-2019 season.

    He averaged just 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists on 45.9-percent shooting in 73 games played. Those stats equated to top-300 value, which is his worst of his career as he has never dropped below top-260 for a season. Turner is seemingly on a career decline, so he can be left on draft boards come next season.

    Evan Turner scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound and three assists in 21 minutes off the bench in Friday's loss to the Nuggets.

    Turner had two triple-doubles in a row and is clearly ready to mop up minutes for the Blazers down the stretch. Give him a look if his stat set can help you.

    Seth Curry (left tibia soreness) will not play Friday’s game against the Nuggets.

    Look for Rodney Hood and a resurgent Evan Turner to fill in for the ailing Curry.

    Evan Turner got his second consecutive triple-double on Wednesday, with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in a blowout win over the Grizzlies.

    Turner is proving to bring some sneaky good value down the stretch for the Blazers and can be picked up as a speculative add for the remaining four games of the season. Turner has had a disappointing season, so there is no guarantee that these two triple-doubles converts to minutes.
