    Myles Turner tweeted that it is a "Blatant Disrespect" he did not make an All-Defensive team.

    While Turner had a phenomenal defensive season, there are only two spots overall for centers, so someone was going to be left off. Rudy Gobert was the center on the first team and is a finalist for DPOY, while Joel Embiid was the center on the second team and had a huge impact on the defensive side of the ball for the Sixers. Turner had a marvelous season defensively and there is an argument to be made for him over Embiid, but the nature of positions on the All-Defensive teams means someone was getting left off.

    Myles Turner scored 13 points with two blocks and seven rebounds on Sunday as the Pacers lost to the Celtics.

    Turner had a down series against Boston with a lot of credit going to the defensive wizard Al Horford. Turner was expected to take on more of an offensive role with Victor Oladipo out, but it never really happened. His scoring actually took a small dip post-All Star Break. We'll see what the Pacers decide to do with Turner and Domantas Sabonis this offseason as the two aren't great fits together, but are each good young players.

    Myles Turner scored 13 points on 4-for-10 shooting to go along with seven rebounds, two blocks and one three in Friday night's home loss in Game 3.

    Turner was team-worst minus-17 on the night as he particularly struggled from three-point range (1-for-5). Indiana was expected to at least compete in this first-round series with Boston and Turner failing to take on more of the scoring load with Victor Oladipo injured is not helping their case to avoid a sweep.

    Myles Turner scored just five points with eight boards, two dimes and a block in Sunday's loss to the Celtics.

    Turner, and the rest of the Pacers, just could not get anything going in this one. The Celtics handled their offense easily in a game straight out of 2005, with a final score of 84-74.

    Coach Nate McMillan said that the Pacers are good-to-go health wise for Game 1 against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Myles Turner, Bojan Bogdanovic, Domantas Sabonis, Thaddeus Young and Wesley Matthews all sat out the final regular season game. Turner however, has been out since the third quarter of the game prior to that after sustaining an ankle injury but the NBA's leading shot-blocker will be ready for Game 1.

    Myles Turner will not play in Wednesday's season finale against the Hawks, finishing his campaign with averages of 13.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 1.0 3-pointers and a league-leading 2.7 blocks per game.

    Turner had his breakout campaign, returning top-35/25 per-game value and top-30/20 total value (8/9-cat). Most important was the fact that he stayed relatively healthy, missing just eight games after sitting out 17 a year ago. This year he was sidelined by a sore left hip (two games), a sore right shoulder (four games) and a sore left ankle (one game). He left Sunday's game with a sore right ankle and back spasms, but this has the looks of a rest day more than anything. Most of the fantasy community was a year too early on Turner, but he smashed expectations this time around.

    Myles Turner (sore right ankle, back spasms) was unable to return to Sunday's 96-108 loss to the Nets.

    Turner was questionable to return because of the ankle injury but his back also flared up and the Pacers just opted to rest him. He finished with six points, four rebounds, a steal, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes, so it wasn't a total waste for fantasy owners. Keep an eye on his status for the next game as Indiana could choose to rest him before the playoffs. Domantas Sabonis took full advantage and put up 17 points and 12 rebounds in 31 minutes.

    Myles Turner (sore right ankle) is questionable to return on Sunday.

    Turner limped to the locker room earlier with a trainer after being visibly upset. It wouldn't be a surprise if the Pacers just rest him, given the playoffs are starting next weekend.

    Myles Turner totaled 15 points, seven rebounds, two 3-pointers and one block in Friday's 117-97 loss to the Celtics.

    Turner's 15 points and seven rebounds paced the entire Indiana team in what was an ugly loss. Turner has had an excellent season, leading the league in blocks per game and locking in a top-40 finish. Domantas Sabonis was one of the only other solid lines on the team with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals.

    Myles Turner blocked five more shots and added 17 points, six rebounds, three steals and two threes in Monday's 111-102 home win over the Pistons.

    Turner, this season's blocks leader, has delivered third-round value this season despite another slow start. Bojan Bogdanovic had another productive game as well, providing 17 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and a trey while hitting all four of his freebies in 37 minutes tonight.

    Myles Turner shot 6-for-13 and a perfect 3-for-3 from the charity stripe to go along with a three ball for a total of 16 points and 12 rebounds while adding a steal and a block in Saturday's home loss.

    The double-double was a welcome sight to fantasy owners on the night in addition to the defensive statistics. Over the last 10 games, Turner has averaged 1.9 blocks and 0.8 steals while continuing his steady top-40 pace on the season. Expect much of the same to close out the year from one of the NBA's top young centers.

    Myles Turner had a big double-double in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder, notching 12 points, 14 rebounds, four blocks and a 3-pointer

    Turner has cemented himself as one of the top rim protectors in the game this season, though Steven Adams rose to the occasion and put up a big game tonight. Indiana blew a second-half lead when OKC ripped off a 24-0 run, and they now stagger their way into Friday's matchup with the Celtics.

    Myles Turner played well on Sunday in a blowout win over the Nuggets as he had 17 points and 11 rebounds in 31 minutes of action.

    He shot 7-of-15 from the field and added two assists, one steal and two blocks to the box score. Domantas Sabonis also double-doubled and had 15 points, 13 rebounds and four assists on 7-of-13 shooting. Although Sabonis is outside the top-200 over the past month, he is still inside the top-100 value on the season and owners can only hope that he turns things around for the fantasy playoffs. Turner is the more steady option as a top-30 value this season.

    Myles Turner scored four points on 2-of-10 shooting while adding six rebounds on Thursday.

    Turner didn't block a shot and went 2-for-10 from the field and scoreless from deep. It wasn't an ideal matchup as he had to face either Draymond Green or DeMarcus Cousins all night so we'll give him a pass and the fact that he blocked five shots yesterday makes up for tonight.
