Myles Turner was efficient in a loss to the Celtics on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points (7-for-11 FG), eight rebounds and four blocks in 36 minutes.
Myles Turner is very comparable to Rudy Gobert in that they both do phenomenal on the defensive end but lack a fully polished offensive game. Turner actually averages more blocks than Gobert, sitting at 3.3 BPG over the last two weeks compared to Gobert's 2.7 BPG. Turner is inside the top-50 in his last 24 games. He is a steady contributor, leave him in your lineups.

Myles Turner was great against the Mavs on Sunday, posting 16 points (6-of-9 FG), 13 rebounds, two 3-pointers, three blocks and two steals.
Turner has put together seven consecutive games with at least two blocks, and he is a solid rebounder and 3-pointer shooter. It is not always pretty when Turner goes quiet as a scorer, but he remains a very nice mid-round value that has the potential to do even more when he takes on a larger offensive role. While he went back to the locker room he appears to be just fine for the Pacers' next game on Tuesday with the Celtics.

Myles Turner was able to re-enter Sunday's game during the second quarter against the Mavs.
It's good to see Turner was quickly able to return to action. It is still a mystery as to why he went back into the locker room, we'll provide an update after the game once we've learned more.

Myles Turner went to the locker room for an unknown reason on Sunday at the end of the first quarter against the Mavs.
It's not clear why Turner needed to leave the bench, but we'll keep an eye on it and provide further information down the line. He has been playing better lately, blocking shots with more regularity than he had been earlier in the season. Hopefully, this is a quick fix.

Myles Turner dropped 15 points, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked four shots in the Pacers' victory over the Bulls on Friday.
Turner won't wow you with his performances, but he's as steady as they come. He sits right inside the top-50 over the past two months and just outside of it on the year. Make sure he's entrenched in your fantasy lineups if you're fighting for playoff positioning.

Myles Turner had another strong defensive night on Monday, scoring 17 points while adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal, four blocks and a 3-pointer.
Turner's block party continued against the Spurs tonight and it looks like there's no end in sight. Enjoy the ride.

Myles Turner did his thing on Saturday, recording 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with 10 rebounds, two 3s and four blocks in 36 minutes.
There's not much more you can ask for from Turner, who was able to grab double-digit rebounds while making threes and blocking shots like the stretch five that he is. He's been trending up lately and could be in for a strong finish to the season.

Myles Turner hit the dagger triple in Thursday's win over the Blazers, finishing with 14 points, 10 boards and two blocked shots in 32 minutes.
Turner had a decent double-double in this game and we're happy to see the scoring and rebounding up. At this point, this might be the line we hope for from Turner down the stretch to give us top-40ish value.

Myles Turner set a career record with eight blocks in Tuesday's 119-80 blowout win over the Hornets, adding six points (2-of-9 shooting), 10 boards, two 3s, two steals and one turnover in 27 minutess.
Turner's big night on defense came with ease considering this was a very favorable matchup. He's not been the early-round value stud this season that many had hoped for, but tonight was a reminder of the intrinsic upside that he possesses.

Myles Turner survived a thumping vs. the Raptors on Sunday, going for seven points (3-of-10 FG), seven rebounds, three steals and one block.
That won't blow you away, but Turner had a decent night compared to many of his teammates. He continues to take backseat on the offensive end, but the blocks and 3-pointers (0-of-4 3-pointers) remain staples of his mid-round value.

Myles Turner swatted five shots in Saturday's loss to the Pelicans and was also able to contribute 10 points (2-of-4 FG, 5-of-6 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one triple in 32 minutes.
Turner has been a quiet shadow to Domantas Sabonis (16 points, eight boards, two blocks, one triple) all season and has rarely managed to make a splash in the fantasy arena. Tonight's five-block effort was a good step in the right direction, but consistency has been his bane all season long.

Myles Turner was active on the defensive end of the floor on Monday, recording two steals and three blocks to go with 11 points (4-of-8 shooting), five rebounds, one triple and one assist.
Turner brought one of his better games in quite a while with this one and despite dealing with a bit of foul trouble, was able to fill up the stat sheet. The buy-low window can be considered slammed shut if he does this again in the next game.

Myles Turner returned from a two-game absence (illness) on Saturday but was relatively quiet with 12 points, six rebounds, a steal and four 3-pointers.
The triples are nice and Turner actually took all of his shots from behind the arc, which is less-nice. The emergence of Domantas Sabonis has really crowded the paint and it's had a big impact on Turner — his FG% is down four percentage points because he's taking about 40% more threes this season, and playing more of a power forward role has taken him away from the rim and led to slipping block totals. Turner's overall game is enough to stay valuable but he's not going to come close to his lofty ADP as more of a top-70 guy.

Myles Turner is no longer being listed on the injury report and will be available to play on Saturday against the Knicks.
Turner missed two games with the flu and his return to the lineup comes a day after his frontcourt partner, Domantas Sabonis, gets an All-Star nod. It's been a disappointing season for Turner through and through, but he's still an elite shotblocker with a theoretically fantasy-friendly game, so we wouldn't be surprised to see him finish the season strong. That said, expectations must be tempered as he has virtually no chance to live up to his draft day price tag. He's one of the riskier buy-low options out there.

Myles Turner (illness) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.
With Turner ruled out, Domantas Sabonis will get all of the opportunity that he can handle in the frontcourt while Goga Bitadze will see additional minutes at center. Turner should be able to recover from this illness soon and his next opportunity to play will come on Saturday vs. the Knicks.
