Evan Turner matched his season high with 10 assists in Tuesday's loss to the Bucks, adding six points, six boards and one block in 30 minutes.
He isn't slowing down and is playing some great ball for Boston. He has averages of 12.8 points, 7.6 boards, 6.8 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.6 steals over his last five games on 45.3 percent shooting from the field, returning top-65 value in standard leagues in that span. He doesn't hit 3-pointers, but it still makes sense to own him in all leagues at the moment. Feb 9 - 11:31 PM

Evan Turner had another strong game in 27 minutes on Sunday, posting 11 points, nine assists, four rebounds and one block in a win vs. Sacramento.

The Celtics have now won seven straight games at TD Garden, their longest such streak since 2013, and they'll get one more pre-break home game vs. the Clippers on Wednesday. Turner has been terrific in February, averaging 15.7 points, 9.3 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks -- his role is stable and he's worth deploying in typical leagues.
Feb 7 - 4:42 PM

Evan Turner double-doubled in 32 minutes off the bench during Friday's win over the Cavs, tallying 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 12 boards, six assists, one block and one turnover.

Jae Crowder (ankle) said after the game that he felt like he was playing on one leg, so he may be forced to the sidelines on Sunday vs. Sacramento, which would likely result in Turner returning to the starting lineup. While Evan isn't the most exciting guy to own, he's been producing late-round value over the past month behind averages of 9.6 points, 4.5 boards, 4.8 assists and 1.0 steal on 48.5 percent shooting. He's worth owning in most leagues, particularly with Crowder hurting.
Feb 6 - 12:21 AM

Evan Turner played 29 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-13 shots for 14 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Marcus Smart really struggled tonight and Turner took advantage. He's averaging 13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.6 steals, but is not a 3-point shooter. Given how well he's playing, he should be owned in most leagues.
Feb 2 - 10:57 PM

Evan Turner scored 15 points with two rebounds, eight assists, two steals and three turnovers in 25 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

He said second unit has been beating the first unit in practice, and he compared it to UConn women's win streak. Jokes aside, Turner has been really good in reality for the second unit. He's still only hanging around top-150 value in standard leagues recently, so he's not an add now that Marcus Smart is back and playing wonderful ball.
Jan 29 - 11:05 PM

Evan Turner paced the Celtics' second unit on Wednesday with 14 points, four rebounds, six assists and a pair of steals, with three turnovers in 30 minutes of action.

This is Turner's fourth straight game with at least one steal, which is crucial since he never blocks shots and lacks 3-point range (14.8 percent on the season). As ever, his solid points, boards and assists are undermined by a lack of supporting stats -- most owners should leave him untouched.
Jan 27 - 10:27 PM

Evan Turner scored 18 points against the Wizards on Monday with five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

He did score eight points in garbage time, so this line is slightly misleading. With Marcus Smart playing well, Turner doesn't hold much value right now.
Jan 25 - 9:52 PM

Evan Turner (knee) played 26 minutes on Monday with four points, three rebounds, eight assists and one steal.

He was doubtful for this game and didn't look to be too limited. Turner's playing time should be dropping now that the main three guards are healthy now. Coach Brad Stevens does love the small lineups, so Turner should still have value in points and deep leagues.
Jan 18 - 11:58 PM

Evan Turner (sore knee) will give it a go on Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens admitted that Turner's knee has been bothering him lately, but Turner is as tough as they come and has played in 150 straight games. He is averaging just 3.0 points, 2.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 1.6 turnovers over his last five games, so he doesn't belong in most fantasy lineups, though.
Jan 18 - 7:14 PM

Evan Turner (sore knee) will likely sit out of Monday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Turner has played an incredible 150 straight games, but it sounds like the Celtics are holding him out as a precaution. If Turner does sit, expect guys like Avery Bradley, Marcus Smart and Jae Crowder to pick up a few extra minutes. Turner should be considered day-to-day for now, but he will try to warm up in an effort to play.
Jan 18 - 6:31 PM

Evan Turner came off the bench and played 28 minutes, finishing with seven points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 3-of-10 shooting.

The minutes were nice, despite the fact Avery Bradley played 38 tonight, but he was looking much better when Bradley was down and out with a hip injury. We're in a wait-and-see patter with Turner, but signs are pointing to his production and minutes to slide as long as most of his teammates are healthy.
Jan 12 - 11:39 PM

Evan Turner shifted to a reserve role during Sunday's road loss, going scoreless with two boards and three assists in 21 minutes of action.

Turner had been filling in as a starter for Avery Bradley (hip), averaging 35.5 minutes per game, but he's averaged only 26.5 minutes while coming off the bench this season. He's capable of producing low-end value in most formats, but there should be more enticing free agents in 12-team leagues.
Jan 10 - 9:25 PM

Evan Turner will return to the bench for Sunday's game vs. the Grizzlies with Avery Bradley (hip) returning to the starting unit.

Turner's value takes a pretty big hit with the demotion to the second-unit, so he can be cut for those who picked him up in standard leagues for his short-term appeal while Bradley was sidelined. The Celtics will roll out a starting five of Isaiah Thomas, Bradley, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson and Kelly Olynyk for Sunday's game in Memphis.

Evan Turner played 37 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday with 10 points, five rebounds, six assists and four steals.

His ability to play three positions makes him the ultimate utility man for the Celtics. However, his minutes are likely going to fall once Avery Bradley (hip) returns possibly on Sunday. Because of the Marcus Smart injury, the Celtics haven't really been healthy at guard since Nov. 20. Turner only played 24 minutes per game back then, so he would likely be someone to cut once Bradley is ready to roll.
Jan 7 - 10:47 PM

Evan Turner played 37 minutes on Monday against the Nets, scoring 12 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, one block and four turnovers.

This was pretty much the expectation on Turner tonight with Avery Bradley (hip) out. He can do some things in points, boards and dimes, but that's about it. Owners in standard leagues should be able to do better, especially since Bradley's injury sounds minor.
