Evan Turner filled the stat sheet in a 103-95 Game 3 loss to the Cavs on Thursday, scoring 19 points with eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.
He ran the offense for much of this game and played well on the offensive side. Turner was stuffed at the rim by LeBron James and he was overmatched at times on defense. Coach Brad Stevens loves Turner more than all of his former NBA coaches combined, so he'll be looking at a significant role in Game 4. Apr 23 - 10:15 PM

Evan Turner was busy vs. the visiting Raptors on Tuesday, playing a team-high 31 minutes to finish with 14 points on 7-of-14 shooting, seven rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and seven turnovers.

Turner's usage rate of 19.6 percent ranks fifth among Boston's regular rotation players since the All-Star break, yet he's emerged as a solid mid-round value on the strength of impressive rebounds, steals, and particularly assists, with 8.3 per game in April. His role may diminish next season but he's been a surprising value for owners who held onto him this year.
Apr 14 - 10:30 PM

Evan Turner had a solid all-around performance during Sunday's trouncing of the Cavs, putting up 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting (3-of-4 from the line), with seven rebounds, five assists, four steals and just one turnover through 27 minutes of action.

It's always a bonus when Turner can connect on at least 50 percent of his shot attempts, and the fact that Turner was going up against Cleveland's bench mob had to help his numbers. He doesn't hit many 3-pointers, and he can kill your field goal percentage, but his steady contributions to rebounds, steals, and assists make him worth owning as a low-end asset in standard leagues.
Apr 12 - 6:26 PM

Evan Turner dropped a triple-double against the Pacers during a 100-87 win on Wednesday with 13 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists and one 3-pointer on 6-of-17 from the field.

It was a very Turner-esque triple-double with no defensive stats and poor shooting, but he did have a very good game tonight and helped his team earn a big win. The Celtics are now just 0.5 behind the Nets for the eighth seed. Turner is a must-own player in points leagues and an low-end option in standard formats for his lack of diversity on the stat sheet.
Apr 2 - 12:41 AM

Evan Turner racked up nine points, seven rebounds and 10 assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's loss, while chipping in one 3-pointer and a pair of steals.

Turner is one of only six players in the NBA with at least 350 rebounds and 350 assists this season, joining James Harden, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, Eric Bledsoe and Tyreke Evans. He doesn't contribute many 3-pointers or defensive stats, and his percentages take a chunk out of his overall value, but he's currently playing well enough for use in all 12-team leagues.
Mar 29 - 9:17 PM

Evan Turner hit just 1-of-5 shots for four points, four rebounds and five assists in 20 minutes on Wednesday.

The Heat were up by 17 at halftime and Brad Davis was trying several different and random combos in hopes of getting back into the game. Turner came in hot and Isaiah Thomas didn't look comfortable in his return to action, so we're not ready to give up on Turner just yet.
Mar 26 - 12:55 AM

Evan Turner triple-doubled in Monday's win, scoring 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting (no threes) with 10 rebounds, 12 assists and one block.

Turner is the guy who takes a hit when Isaiah Thomas (probable) returns as soon as Wednesday. With the way he has been playing lately, owners will want to walk him all the way to the edge before considering a drop.
Mar 23 - 10:23 PM

Evan Turner scored 23 points on 10-of-21 shooting with eight assists, six boards, three steals and two 3-pointers during Sunday's loss to the Pistons.

Marcus Smart was suspended for this one, meaning Evan Turner was the primary ball-handler and he was in total control tonight. Turner's value will take a hit when Smart comes back Monday, but he is still posting respectable averages of 12.4 points, 6.8 assists, 4.8 boards and 1.6 steals over his last five games.
Mar 22 - 10:21 PM

Evan Turner hit 3-of-6 shots for eight points, six rebounds, 10 assists and five steals before fouling out of Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.

He's quietly been putting up nice lines for most of the season and is one of a handful of players to put up at least five points, five rebounds, five assists and five steals in a game this year.
Mar 19 - 12:46 AM

Evan Turner scored 10 points with four rebounds and five assists against the 76ers on Monday.

Before the game, he said he's down to 217 pounds, which is down from 231 from last season. Turner hasn't put up decent value in standard leagues over his last five, averaging 11.2 points, 4.4 boards, 5.0 assists and 0.6 steals. He's a decent player to own in points leagues, though.
Mar 16 - 11:12 PM

Evan Turner scored four points on 1-of-7 from the field for four points with seven rebounds, seven assists and one block sin 27 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

He was hot for 30 points on Friday, but was back to his inefficient ways tonight. Turner can't score consistently and is going to need to stay hot in order to be a top-120 guy in standard leagues. He's worth holding in most points leagues, though.
Mar 14 - 10:08 PM

Evan Turner made 12-of-20 from the field against the Magic during a 95-88 win on Friday, scoring a total of 30 points with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

Coach Brad Stevens said he wanted to see Turner score more before the game, which came as a surprise because of how much Turner has struggled lately. "One more bad night and I was going to get my arm checked out, or my wrist," Turner joked after the game. It's all about the format for Turner. If you're in a points league, he's likely a must-own guy especially while Isaiah Thomas is out. He's only a questionable add in standard leagues, though.
Mar 14 - 12:01 AM

Celtics' head coach Brad Stevens wants Evan Turner to step up as a scorer with Isaiah Thomas (elbow, back) out.

Giving Turner the green light to shoot isn't necessarily a good thing for a guy who is shooting 40.4 percent from the field on the season. His high-volume, low-make shooting is much better suited for points formats where field goal percentage is irrelevant, and he may turn the ball over a bit more as a focal point on offense. Turner makes sense in daily leagues, but he's a tough guy to own in standard formats.
Mar 13 - 5:59 PM

Evan Turner was ejected against the Heat in the fourth quarter on Monday, scoring eight points with six rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

He didn't have his best game despite having a little more opportunity with Avery Bradley (elbow) out. Turner shouldn't be suspended for his infraction today, but he's not someone most fantasy owners should grab in standard leagues. In his last five, he's averaged 8.4 points, 3.8 boards, 4.2 assists and 0.8 steals.
Mar 10 - 12:25 AM

Evan Turner (toe) logged 29 minutes as a starter on Sunday, finishing with 10 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers vs. the Magic.

His minutes were likely held in check due to his lingering toe injury. The Celtics finish a back-to-back set vs. Miami on Monday and we'll keep a close eye on Turner's status, but owners can assume he'll be active -- there's extra incentive for him to suit up with Avery Bradley (elbow) already ruled out.
