    Myles Turner (illness) was back at practice on Friday after sitting out Thursday's session.

    Nothing to see here. Turner is one of several Pacers who has been sick lately but the team is looking fairly healthy heading into the season.

    Myles Turner (illness) sat out Thursday's practice.

    A few different Pacers have missed time with illness lately, so this isn't a cause for concern. Turner should be good to go for the regular season and is coming off draft boards in the third round, so be prepared for that investment if you plan to target last season's leading shot-blocker.

    The Pacers intend to play their starters in the first half of Tuesday's preseason finale.

    Expect a lot of random lineup groups in preseason finales across the league. It should mean lots of potential value for DFS players, and season-long folks will just hope that the Myles Turners of the world stay healthy in their half of work.

    In Wednesday's win over the Bulls, Myles Turner finished with 13 points, seven rebounds, five blocks, three assists, two steals and two threes in 28 minutes of action.

    It was quite the showing for last season's leading shot blocker, who is expected to take on more of a scoring role while the Pacers await the return of Victor Oladipo. Turner's ability to put up well-rounded and efficient lines like this one will make him very tempting for fantasy players as early as round two.

    Myles Turner finished with 11 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks on 5-of-10 shooting in 30 minutes in a win over the Kings on Friday.

    The defensive stats have been Turner's bread and butter and it doesn't look like that'll be changing this season. He attempted one triple in this one but didn't convert, however he's a 36.3 percent deep ball shooter in his career so it's definitely in his arsenal. He'll be the unquestioned starter and he's a pretty safe lock for top-50 value.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Coach Nate McMillan announced that the starting lineup would be Malcolm Brogdon, Jeremy Lamb, TJ Warren, Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner.

    This was the assumed starting lineup for the Pacers so no surprises here. With Victor Oladipo still without a timetable for return, Brogdon and Lamb should be considered the starting backcourt for the foreseeable future. Brogdon should be a very productive mid-round pick with what should be an increased role on this Pacers team compared to the Milwaukee team he was previously on.

    Goga Bitadze, selected 18th overall by the Pacers in the 2019 NBA Draft, could see some reserve minutes at center when playing alongside Myles Turner according to Scott Agness of The Athletic.

    Turner should start at center for the Pacers, while Bitadze will be battling Domantas Sabonis and T.J. Warren for playing time. However, Turner would slide to power forward with Bitadze on the floor. A Georgian national, Bitadze averaged 12.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in EuroLeague play last season.

    Myles Turner scored 16 points on Monday, shooting 8-of-11 from the field with eight rebounds and two steals in a 89-73 win over Brazil.

    The Americans haven't been obliterating the competition as they usually do but Turner slots in on a team that relies on balanced contributions. Four players scored in double figures while three others scored eight or more. After a big breakout season, expect Turner to come off fantasy draft boards starting in the third round, if not a shade earlier.

    Myles Turner put up 15 points and 14 rebounds in Thursday's exhibition win over Team Australia, shooting 6-of-8 from the floor with a 3-pointer.

    Turner didn't get any blocks but we know that last year's league-leader can rack those up in a hurry, whether he's getting them in international competition or not. Look for another early-middle round season out of the talented big man. Kemba Walker led Team USA with 23 points in the 102-86 win.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Domantas Sabonis and the Pacers expect to sign an agreement that keeps the big man in Indiana.

    Sabonis stated, "Like my dad said: 'You did your job. You did your best and now you just have to wait.' Now I can't do anything. I just need to be patient and wait." It sounds like the sides are just waiting for the right moment to come to terms. While the Sabonis and Myles Turner frontcourt pairing has never been perfect for the Pacers, it is still a winning formula, and the plan remains in place to start both of them next season.

    Myles Turner plans on attending Team USA's training camp in early August, per Scott Agness of The Athletic.

    The training camp roster continues to leak out, with Keith Pompey reporting that Tobias Harris will also be in attendance. It's a nice honor for Turner after he was surprisingly left off the NBA's All-Defensive teams despite leading the league in blocks. It'll be an uphill battle to make the final roster for Team USA, but Turner should have plenty of motivation.

    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.
