Evan Turner (calf) came off the bench in his return from a one-game absence on Thursday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting to go with one 3-pointer, two rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes.
Turner said prior to the game that he expected to be on a 15-20 minute limit, as the calf had been bothering him over the past 10 days, and he did appear to be wincing a bit throughout the game. The Blazers take on the 17-36 Kings on Friday in the second game of this back-to-back set, so owners might want to confirm Turner's status prior to tip-off, as it wouldn't be terribly shocking to see him sit that one out.

Evan Turner (calf) is available to play against the Hornets on Thursday.

Coach Terry Stotts didn't say who was going to start, but that's not news. Moe Harkless gave the Blazers good minutes and maybe he'll see rotation minutes again. There isn't really a fantasy add to make here.
Feb 8 - 8:21 PM

Evan Turner (left calf) is questionable for Thursday’s game vs. Charlotte.

He did not play on Monday for what is believed to be a minor injury. It'll be Moe Harkless stepping up the most, but his name is all over the trade rumors right now.
Feb 7 - 3:45 PM

Evan Turner (left calf) will not suit up for Monday's game in Detroit.

With Turner watching from the sidelines on Monday, there will be more minutes available for guys like Shabazz Napier, Moe Harkless and Pat Connaughton, with either Napier or Harkless getting the start. Harkless had a nice game on Sunday with 19 points, five triples, eight boards and a steal over 31 minutes, so he could be someone to think about streaming tonight.

Evan Turner (left calf) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pistons.

Shabazz Napier (great left toe soreness) is also questionable. Turner had a probable tag for the same injury on Sunday and didn't look great in 23 minutes, scoring two points on 0-of-3 shooting. If Turner or Napier can't go, expect to see more of Moe Harkless and Pat Connaughton. In terms of fantasy, it's tough to trust anyone in Portland other than Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic.
Feb 5 - 11:16 AM

Evan Turner (left calf) is available and will start vs. Boston on Sunday.

He was originally probable, so his status wasn't in any real doubt. With Shabazz Napier (toe) out, Turner should see his normal allotment of minutes and does have some low-end streaming appeal against his former team.
Feb 4 - 11:02 AM

Evan Turner (left calf) is probable for Sunday against the Celtics.

He could be looking at a little more run with Shabazz Napier (toe) questionable. Turner needs serious volume to have fantasy value and he won't get it while Dame Lillard and C.J. McCollum are active.
Feb 3 - 4:20 PM

Evan Turner finished with just two points across 23 minutes in Friday's 130-105 loss in Toronto.

Turner was a dismal 1-of-7 from the field while going 0-of-2 from behind the arc. He was also able to post just three rebounds and an assist while turning in an ugly minus-23 rating. He'll look to rebound in matinee action on Sunday in Boston against his former team. He is averaging just 6.0 points, 4.3 assists and 2.5 rebounds over his past four outings.
Feb 2 - 10:29 PM

Evan Turner (personal) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Clippers with five points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and a triple.

He played 30 minutes, so he slid right back into his usual role. Turner has very little upside when the Blazers are healthy and he was averaging 11.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 0.9 triples in January prior to Tuesday, so he's more of a deep-league asset.
Jan 31 - 1:30 AM

Evan Turner (personal) will play and start Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

Turner missed Friday's game for personal reasons, but he's since rejoined the team and will be back in action on Tuesday night. With him back, Moe Harkless should move back to the bench and Shabazz Napier's minutes will take a hit.
Jan 29 - 3:46 PM

Blazers coach Terry Stotts said Evan Turner (personal) is expected to return to practice on Monday.

He missed Friday's game vs. the Mavericks with an excused personal absence, but he should be ready to roll on Tuesday vs. the Clippers. If Turner plays, Moe Harkless will move back to the bench and Shabazz Napier will lose some streaming appeal as well.
Jan 29 - 11:17 AM

Evan Turner (personal) is expected to return to the team on Sunday.

After tonight, the Blazers are off until Tuesday, so Turner should be ready for that one. Moe Harkless gets a spot start and will get his biggest chance in a long time.
Jan 26 - 8:24 PM

Evan Turner (personal) is out against the Mavs on Friday.

It'll be just his second game out this season and hopefully everything is OK with Turner. With him out, that could get Moe Harkless back in the rotation while it gives Shabazz Napier and Pat Connaughton a chance for more minutes.
Jan 26 - 2:27 PM

Evan Turner (illness) played 23 minutes vs. the Wolves on Sunday, finishing with eight points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and four turnovers.

He made 2-of-6 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs in his return from a one-game absence, but Portland was never really close after getting blown out 26-10 in the second quarter. Turner's starting gig has given him borderline value in roto leagues over the past month, in 28.4 minutes per game, but he's limited by a low usage rate (15.0%) and perpetual lack of supporting stats.
Jan 15 - 12:03 AM

Evan Turner (illness) will start against the Wolves on Sunday.

He's back after a one-game absence. The Blazers are healthy, so Turner's upside isn't the greatest. Over his last nine games, Turner averaged 11.6 points, 2.4 assists and 3.2 rebounds. Shabazz Napier is expected to return to the bench, but coach Terry Stotts will have a tough time keeping him off the floor.
