    Evan Turner, who only played 19 games this season (all for the Hawks prior to being traded to the Wolves), turned in a lackluster effort in 2019-20.

    Even on a per-game basis, Turner was outside the top-400 in 9-cat, although he ranked a little higher in 8-cat at 354. Either way, the Hawks did not get what they were looking for when they traded Kent Bazemore to Portland in exchange for Turner in the offseason. Turner was injured twice early in the season and never found his footing, averaging under four points per game in the 19 games he was able to participate in. He became a buyout candidate after the trade with the Wolves, but nothing ever materialized on that front.

    The Celtics are looking at available buyout candidates who could immediately give their bench an offensive boost and Evan Turner would welcome a return to Boston, according to Sean Deveney of Heavy.com.

    Turner is still a member of the Wolves, trying to determine what’s next. He worked out for the Clippers last week, before L.A. signed Reggie Jackson from the Pistons. He is someone to keep an eye on in deeper leagues as the Celtics are desperate for some reliable production from their bench.

    Evan Turner is set to work out for the Clippers, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

    Turner is working on a buyout with the Wolves and Minnesota never had any intention of holding ET back from other work. He's only appeared in 19 games all season and would be at the end of LA's rotation, so there's minimal fantasy impact if Turner finds his way to the Clips.

    Evan Turner is currently not with the Wolves and will be out for Wednesday's game.

    The Wolves have a healthy youth movement going on right now, so there's no surprise that Turner would be the odd man out.

    Evan Turner has been traded to the Wolves in Tuesday's four-team trade involving the Hawks, Rockets and Nuggets.

    The Wolves had to move several players to take on Turner's $18.6 million salary, but they'll also receive a first-round pick from the Hawks (via Brooklyn) as part of the deal, and are said to be stockpiling assets as part of their larger deadline plans. ET has been largely out of the rotation this year and shouldn't expect much playing time in Minnesota, either.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Clint Capela is headed to the Hawks in a dizzying four-team trade that sends Robert Covington to the Rockets, Malik Beasley, Juancho Hernangomez, Evan Turner, Noah Vonleh, Jarred Vanderbilt and Keita Bates-Diop as well as Denver's two first-round picks for 2020 to the Wolves with Denver getting Gerald Green and Shabazz Napier.

    Capela will make for an intriguing frontcourt partner with John Collins. Capela's arrival all but snuffs out any viable value Alex Len and Damian Jones were holding onto. It's noteworthy that Capela has not played alongside a true scoring frontcourt threat, like Collins, so there will definitely be an adjustment period for both big men. That all said, expect Capela's marching orders to be simple. Focus on crashing the boards and blocking shots, which makes sense as those are his strengths. On the other end of the coin, he will see dips in his scoring. Overall, Capela's value should remain close to stable, but will be downgraded due to the Hawks' less than ideal fantasy playoff schedule.

    C, Houston Rockets

    The Timberwolves, Hawks and Rockets are in advanced talks on a trade involving Clint Capela, Robert Covington and Evan Turner, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    The Hawks would land Capela, Covington would head to the Rockets and the Timberwolves would end up with Turner and draft picks. A fourth team is also rumored to be in the mix. The trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. ET. Buckle up, this would be a big one with some serious fantasy implications.

    Evan Turner is not active for Friday's game against the Celtics and is not expected to be for the foreseeable future as the Hawks' focus on youth.

    The writing has been on the wall for Turner, unfortunately, and this just makes it official that he is not in the Hawks' plans. You should have forgotten about him a long time ago.

    Evan Turner (right hamstring strain) has been upgraded to available for Monday's game against the Magic.

    Good for him to be available when Trae Young is out as he might inherit more PG duties in the absence of the Hawks' star PG. However, he's one of the worst per-minute players in the NBA and would need a sizable jump in minutes to even be considered as an assists streamer. Leave him on the wire in all leagues.

    Evan Turner (right hamstring strain) is being listed as probable for Monday's game versus the Magic.

    Turner isn't playing enough to warrant a look in standard leagues, even with Trae Young being sidelined.

    Evan Turner (right hamstring strain) is probable for Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Turner is averaging 13.5 minutes per-game across 16 contests so far this season and is well off the fantasy radar. His return might negatively impact the value of DeAndre' Bembry.

    Evan Turner (right hamstring strain) will not play on Monday.

    Turner was already considered doubtful. He hasn't played since Thursday and DeAndre' Bembry should keep playing around 20 minutes for now.

    Evan Turner (right hamstring strain) is doubtful to play on Monday.

    Turner has appeared in just two of the last seven games and isn't really in the rotation to begin with. He missed Atlanta's last game after being listed as questionable.

    Evan Turner (right hamstring strain) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Cavs.

    Tuner has been nursing multiple injuries this season and has taken a backseat to the younger players. He's never going to get enough minutes to be worth owning in standard leagues and if he sits outs look for DeAndre' Bembry to crack the rotation.
