Description: Celtics guard Evan Turner played well in Saturday's win over the Bulls.
Insight: He had 19 points, six assists, five rebounds, and two turnovers in a start at point guard. Owners should not expect Turner to be consistent at all this season.
10/18/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: Celtics' Evan Turner is a candidate to start at point guard on opening night.
Insight: Turner has gained the trust of coach Brad Stevens and with Rajon Rondo out a few weeks, Turner could start at the point. Rookie Marcus Smart is the long-term answer at point guard for Boston, but if Stevens elects to go with experience, Turner will be the guy.

5/4/2014 9:33:00 PM
Description: Pacers coach Frank Vogel changed up his rotation in the final three games of the team's first-round series against the Hawks, which meant hardly any playing time for Evan Turner and Luis Scola.
Insight: Turner played four minutes in Game 5 while Scola was on the court for eight, and neither player left the bench in Games 6 and 7. Vogel said after Sunday's practice that he expects both Turner and Scola to have a "much greater role" in the next series versus the Wizards, according to
3/14/2014 9:41:00 PM
Description: Pacers G/F Evan Turner had just two points in 21 minutes Friday at Philadelphia, his former team.
Insight: As predicted, Turner has averaged far fewer minutes with the Pacers than he did with Philadelphia. He has played 22.6 minutes, 8.4 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game over 10 games with Indiana.
2/25/2014 9:18:00 PM
Description: Evan Turner had 13 points, six rebounds and two assists over 26 minutes in his Pacers debut Tuesday against the Lakers.
Insight: Indiana acquired the 25-year-old Turner from the Sixers after he averaged 34.9 minutes, 17.4 ppg, 6.0 rpg and 3.7 apg. He won't play more than 20-23 minutes most nights and only saw 26 Tuesday because the Pacers had a huge lead entering the fourth quarter. All five starters played under their season average in minutes, including Paul George with 28 (averages 36) and Lance Stephenson with 33 (averages 35.5).
2/25/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Pacers G/F Evan Turner will be available Tuesday, according to Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star.
Insight: Turner hasn't made his debut with Indiana yet after coming over from the Sixers. The 25-year-old averaged 17.4 ppg, 6.0 rpg and 3.7 apg with Philadelphia but played 34.9 mpg. He'll only get around 20-25 minutes per game with Indiana and his low shooting percentage won't allow him to be a fantasy option in that limited amount of time.
2/21/2014 2:25:00 PM
Description: Pacers G/F Evan Turner and big man Lavoy Allen will not play in Saturday's game with Milwaukee, according to beat reporter Candace Buckner
Insight: Allen won't have any fantasy value with his new team, while Turner should see 20 plus minutes a night on the wing. Turner's value will certainly be less than when he saw 35 minutes a game in Philadelphia.
2/20/2014 7:29:00 PM
Description: In what will go down as the biggest deal of this year's trade deadline, the Pacers received Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen Thursday in exchange for small forward Danny Granger. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
Insight: It's a huge win for the Pacers as Turner figures to be a valuable sixth man off the bench. If Turner can produce anything close to the 17.4 ppg he was averaging in Philadelphia, Indiana is going to be tough to beat.
1/22/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Evan Turner torched the Knicks for 34 points and 11 rebounds Wednesday in a 110-106 Sixers win.
Insight: Turner had 28 points combined in his previous three contests. It's good to see him get back on track after a rough stretch. Turner should be worth a start in his next game Friday against the Raptors.
Cold1/21/2014 1:05:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia SG/SF Evan Turner could see time at backup PG, according to coach Brett Brown.
Insight: Turner has cracked the 20-point mark just once in the past eight games and putting the ball in his hands might be just the thing to break him out of the slump. Backup PG Tony Wroten figures to be sidelined for a while.
1/15/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia small forward Evan Turner had 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists and one steal Wednesday against the Bobcats.
Insight: After averaging 21.5 ppg on 46.8 percent shooting his first 19 games, Turner has dropped off to 16.4 ppg on 41 percent shooting his last 18.

Description: Philadelphia small forward Evan Turner (sore knee) will not play Saturday, according to Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Insight: Sixers coach Brett Brown expects Turner to play Sunday night, but he also expected him to play Saturday and he wasn't able to go. The 25-year-old is averaging a career-high 19.3 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 4.0 apg and 1.0 spg.

Description: Philadelphia small forward Evan Turner is expected to play Saturday against Phoenix despite a sore knee. SOURCE: Bob Cooney, Daily News
Insight: Hopefully the week off (the Sixers haven't played since last Saturday), gave him time to heal up. Turner leads the Sixers in scoring at 19.3 ppg this season.
12/20/2013 10:11:00 PM
Description: Sixers G/F Evan Turner made 13-of-22 from the field, including the game-winner as time expired in overtime, and had 29 points, 10 rebounds and five assists Friday against the Nets.
Insight: Turner averaged 21.5 ppg over his first 19 games of the season, but his average dropped to 13.3 ppg over his previous seven games. His swoon coincided with Michael Carter-Williams' seven-game absence due to a knee injury and his big game Friday came in MCW's first game back in the lineup.
Hot11/22/2013 10:11:00 PM
Description: Sixers G/F Evan Turner had 27 points on 10-of-18 shooting with six rebounds, three assists and one steal Friday against Milwaukee.

Hot11/15/2013 10:06:00 PM
Description: 76ers G/F Evan Turner poured in 27 points Friday in a loss to Atlanta.

Hot11/10/2013 10:16:00 AM
Description: Evan Turner led the Sixers with 31 points Saturday in an overtime loss at Cleveland.
Insight: For Turner, Saturday was about volume. Though he didn't shoot the ball particularly well, the 23 shots Turner attempted were a season-high. It also helped that he was money from the free throw line (11-of-13). Turner matched a season-high with ten boards in the loss.
Hot11/8/2013 9:18:00 PM
Description: Sixers G/F Evan Turner had his fifth 20-point game of the season Friday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Turner scored 22 with 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal and is averaging 22.2 ppg through six contests. He didn't have his fifth 20-point game last season until Dec. 7 but is being asked to do a lot more offensively this season following the trade of Jrue Holiday.
