Myles Turner News
Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner enjoyed one of the best games of his career in Friday's overtime loss to the Wizards. Turner poured in a career-high 40 points while matching his career-best mark with five triples- chipping in 10 rebounds, three blocks, and a steal in 44 minutes. Known primarily as a defense-first player, the big man was looking for his shot early and often in this one, as he entered the locker room at halftime with 24 points on 90 percent shooting. While fantasy managers shouldn't expect big scoring nights like this from Turner often, his seven blocks and six three-pointers in two games make him a rare big man in the land of fantasy basketball.
Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner (toe) reported that he's "doing great" while also adding that he is ramping up his activity level on the court. Turner suffered a partial tear of the plantar plate in his right great toe that cost him the final 18 games of the regular season. While the 25-year-old averaged 12.6 points, 6.5 boards, and a career-high 3.4 blocks during the 2020-21 campaign, his inability to remain healthy over the years has significantly lowered his fantasy value. However, if he can stay on the floor, Turner possesses obvious upside, regardless of where he is playing when the season begins in October.
Indiana Pacers forward Domantas Sabonis and center Myles Turner are expected to share the frontcourt next season, according to new Pacers coach Rick Carlisle. The veteran coach mentioned that it was always a challenge for him whenever he'd face the Pacers' big men during his time with Dallas. "I'm looking forward to the challenge of making it work." Carlisle also stressed the need for "a real balance between the post game and the spacing game." Sadly, injuries hindered both Sabonis and Turner during the 2021 season, but it sounds like they'll be focal points of the team going forward.
Indiana Pacers forward Domantas Sabonis (back) and center Myles Turner (toe) are listed as questionable for Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. It's the second game of a back-to-back set, so it wouldn't be shocking to see the Pacers rest a few veteran players. Losing both players would be a significant blow to the Pacers rotation. However, it'd make Goga Bitadze a must-start in basically every format. Fantasy managers should check back later for another update.
