Myles Turner

    SF, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. Warren (sore right foot), Myles Turner (left ankle sprain) and Doug McDermott (sore right knee) will all be available for the Pacers on Saturday, but that could change, according to head coach Nate McMillan.

    After apparently suffering the injury during Thursday's loss to the Suns, Warren had been deemed questionable prior to this latest update. The fact he could be available would indicate the injury is nothing too serious. Likewise, Turner and McDermott also appear ready to go and barring any setbacks during pre-game shootaround, all three should be active.

    Myles Turner's ankle has him questionable for Saturday's matchup vs. the Lakers.

    The Pacers have to rely upon Turner with Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) sidelined from here on out for the season. Keep an eye on Turner's status as we're bound to get an update tomorrow.

    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon finished Thursday's loss to the Suns with a team-high 25 points on 9-of-16 from the field to go with six rebounds, six assists, one block, four 3-pointers and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

    Brogdon and Myles Turner were the only starters who shot well on Thursday as Turner pitched in with 17 points (7-of-12), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, three blocks, one trey and four turnovers in 32 minutes. Brogdon has been dealing with some neck pain as he has consistently been on the injury report but has been able to play in all but one of the Pacers' seeding games. Turner continues to see an increased workload with Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) sidelined. The Pacers will look to turn the tide as they face the Lakers on Saturday.

    Myles Turner turned in 21 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Magic.

    It turns out that Turner is pretty darn good when he's not getting rolled over by Joel Embiid. Since a disastrous first game in the bubble, Turner's had two excellent outings and is going to be on the early-middle round line for the rest of the resumption. If he goes on a block binge fantasy GMs might be looking at a top-20 player, but even if he keeps up with thesee steady contributions there won't be any complaints.

    Myles Turner fell one rebound short of another double-double on Monday, ending with 17 points and nine rebounds to go with two assists, two blocks and two triples in 33 minutes.

    Turner was fantastic for the Pacers once again, continuing to put together some of his best basketball of the season. The absence of Daomantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) has opened up plenty of opportunities for Turner on both ends of the floor. This kind of production is certainly what we would love to see from Turner on a nightly basis. Sabonis is a chance to miss an extended period and so Turner presents as a potential second-round player for the remainder of the resumption period.

    Myles Turner looked terrifc on Tuesday, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds as well as two combined steals and blocks in 26 minutes of playing time.

    Turner appears to be over the calf injury that kept him out of the first scrimmage, much to the delight of many. With Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) possibly missing the entire eight-games, Turner is poised to capitalize. His relationship with Victor Oladipo could also work as a positive, should the guard choose to play in the resumption. Given the potential upside here, Turner is likely to be targeted in the second-round of many drafts.

    Myles Turner returned from a one-game absence on Sunday, posting 15 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a block and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes of scrimmage action.

    Good to see that Turner's calf injury really was minor. He'll be looking at a larger offensive role for as long as Domantas Sabonis is out, and he may threaten early-round numbers if everything breaks his way. That's never been in question with Turner, but it would be a nice close in a year where he only returned top-65 value. Most importantly, Turner said after the game that his calf didn't bother him at all today.

    Myles Turner (calf) will be in the starting lineup on Sunday after sitting out Thursday's game.

    The Pacers were just exercising caution with Turner on Thursday after losing Domantas Sabonis indefinitely. Turner should be shouldering a heavier scoring load in the resumption of the season and has early-round upside given his elite shot-blocking.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Domantas Sabonis is dealing with a "significant" foot injury, and will be leaving the bubble to see a specialist for treatment.

    Sabonis had been dealing with plantar fasciitis that had kept him out for about a week, but the diagnosis must have seriously worsened to force his exit from the Orlando bubble. He'll be forced to quarantine before he is able to reappear in games for the Pacers. We need to learn more about the situation, but the cryptic tweet from Wojnarowski is a serious cause for concern. For however long Sabonis is absent the Pacers will turn to Myles Turner (calf), who should receive a significant boost for as long as Sabonis is out. The team will also shift more minutes to Goga Bitadze (knee), and scoring opportunities will pour into TJ Warren and Malcolm Brogdon. JaKarr Sampson started the first scrimmage and has a fair shot at the starting slot when the games matter, but we could also see minutes heading towards Doug McDermott and TJ Leaf.

    Myles Turner will sit out Thursday's scrimmage with a calf injury.

    Turner has calf soreness and will sit out today's scrimmage as a precaution as the Pacers get ready for the resumption of the season. Domantas Sabonis (foot) and Goga Bitadze (knee) will also sit which means the Pacers are down to T.J. Leaf at the center spot.

    Myles Turner was limited in practice on Wednesday with calf soreness.

    This is a step in the right direction for Turner as he sat out the entirety of Tuesday's practice with the injury. Expect Turner to be ready for action once the Pacers play meaningful games on August 1 and he could see a larger share of the workload in the frontcourt if Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) has to miss time.

    Myles Turner did not practice on Tuesday due to soreness according to J. Michael.

    Turner joins Domantas Sabonis (plantar fasciitis) on the sidelines, posing a number of questions when it comes to the Pacers playoff aspirations. While there is no word on the specific nature of Turner's injury, there has to be some concern amongst the coaching staff. If Sabonis is forced to miss time, Turner could find himself in a favorable position heading into resumption drafts. He had been a top-30 player over the last month prior to lockdown and will look to build on those numbers as the Pacers push for a top-four seeding.

    Myles Turner took a step backwards in the 2019-20 season fantasy-wise with top-70/60 per-game value in 8/9-cat formats.

    Although Turner missed about two weeks early in the season with an ankle injury, he remained relatively healthy after that. His fantasy production did not meet expectations a season after he put up top-30 value and led the league in shot-blocking. With several new scorers on the team and the emergence of Domantas Sabonis, Turner's usage went down and so did his stats across the board. The only improvement was making 1.4 triples per game compared to 1.0 the prior season but this caused his field goal percentage to dip from 48.7 percent to 45.1. The construct of the team should stay intact for next season so Turner may no longer be a viable third round option.

    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.
