Evan Turner hit a seven-foot shot at the buzzer to beat the Celtics 95-94 on Wednesday, finishing with 16 points with six boards, eight assists and two steals on 6-of-17 shooting.

He gave Jerryd Bayless a nasty crossover dribble to get into the lane and convert a tough shot. This was his second buzzer-beating game winner on the year, which tied Joe Johnson and Andre Iguodala for the league high. Turner is starting to get it going again over his last five, averaging 19.8 points, 6.0 boards, 4.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples. The video is attached in the link below.

Paul Millsap will reportedly undergo left wrist surgery and he will be out indefinitely.

Not good. While X-rays came back negative, it sounds like there was quite a bit of ligament damage to Millsap's wrist and he's sure to be looking at a lengthy absence here. Kenneth Faried got the start in his place on Monday night but finished with just six points and seven boards in 19 minutes, so he's still not a very attractive add. The Nuggets could also go small sans Millsap, shifting Wilson Chandler over to the four and starting Will Barton at the three, in which case Barton would see a nice uptick in value. Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Barton figure to pick up most of Millsap's usage, and Juan Hernangomez could become a larger part of the rotation. Don't cut Millsap until we have an official timetable.

Buddy Hield (ankle) and Vince Carter (kidney stones) participated during Tuesday's practice.

Hield has spent the past two games on the sidelines with a sprained right ankle, but he said he felt good after practice and expects to play Wednesday vs. the Lakers. With Hield back out there, it'll be either De'Aaron Fox or Garrett Temple moving to the bench, and Carter's potential return could cut into Bogdan Bogdanovic's minutes. Check back for official confirmation on Hield's status following Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Luke Babbitt (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

Babbitt suffered the back injury on Monday and is being listed as day-to-day, but he might spend more than just one game on the sidelines with the next two contests after Wednesday being a Friday-Saturday back-to-back set. Ersan Ilyasova could move back into the starting five on Wednesday night, and John Collins should see an uptick in minutes.

Damian Lillard (ankle) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Lillard tweaked his ankle on Monday night, but he said he didn't expect to spend any time on the sidelines and his absence from the injury report suggests that will be the case. Owners can expect official confirmation following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but it doesn't look like there's anything to worry about here.

Al-Farouq Aminu (ankle) will remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Aminu is just about at the end of Week-3 of his initial 2-3 week timetable, so he is getting close, but the Blazers probably want him to go through some full-contact practices before putting him back out there. Noah Vonleh will continue to start at the four sans Aminu, and there will be more minutes available for Moe Harkless, Pat Connaughton and Caleb Swanigan. With Aminu close, he's someone to consider stashing away in 12-team leagues.

John Henson (eye procedure) will not play Wednesday in Phoenix.

It's unclear exactly what procedure Henson had performed, but he's scheduled to re-join the team later this week prior to Saturday's game in Utah, so perhaps this will only be a one-game absence for the shot-blocking dynamo. With Henson on the sidelines, Thon Maker might be able to flirt with 30 minutes, and we could also see some small-ball Giannis Antetokounmpo occupying the five-spot.

Trevor Booker (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

He wasn't able to practice on Tuesday, so he seems much closer to doubtful, but we'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at shootaround. If he's unable to give it a go, Quincy Acy, Jarrett Allen and Tyler Zeller would see a bump in minutes, with Allen offering the most upside.

Mirza Teletovic underwent arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday to repair cartilage in his left knee, and he's expected to miss the next four weeks of action.

Teletovic had missed the past six games, so him going down for another four weeks won't change much with the Milwaukee rotation. Khris Middleton will continue to log heavy minutes with little depth behind him, with DeAndre Liggins picking up minutes in the upper-teens. Teletovic belongs on the wire in all formats.

Sabrina Strickland, an orthopedic sports surgeon who has been in practice more than 20 years, said she thinks Kawhi Leonard (quad) will be "fine" if the Spurs are "truly saying what's wrong with him."

"Usually, it’s just a matter of doing the appropriate type of treatment to get better tissue in that area," said Strickland, who has not examined Leonard or been a part of the rehab process. "But with ones that are more chronic, that’s when players tend to have more aggressive treatment, something more evasive than just the rest-and-rehab route, such as platelet rich plasma [therapy]." The Spurs have been mum on the details surrounding Leonard's right quadriceps tendinopathy, and have yet to offer an official timetable for his return, but the good news is we haven't heard anything regarding a PRP injection. Still, he's not practicing and owners shouldn't expect him back soon.

Larry Nance Jr. (hand) has been a full participant in recent practices and he's targeting a return to the court on Monday vs. the Clippers.

Nance recently had a dental procedure that will prevent him from getting in some work with L.A.'s G-League affiliate, and while he won't be able to take the court for Tuesday's game against Chicago, next Monday against the Clippers seems like a very realistic potential return date. Once he's back, Julius Randle will go back to playing minutes in the teens, but with how well Kyle Kuzma has been playing, it would be surprising to see him lose his starting role. Nance is a fine low-end stash in deep leagues.

Kevin Durant (sprained left ankle) practiced fully on Tuesday but said he was unsure if he would be able to play Wednesday vs. OKC.

Coach Steve Kerr claimed that sitting Durant on Sunday was a mostly precautionary move. However, speaking with reporters after Tuesday's practice and asked about Wednesday's matchup with the Thunder, Durant said: "I don’t know. We’ll see how it feels in the morning." It looks like we are headed towards a game-time decision. It's safe to assume KD is highly motivated to play in OKC, but he and the Warriors also have to look at the big picture. Check back tomorrow for an update.
