Turner provided 19 points (8-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, and eight assists in 33 minutes in the Game 3 loss to Cleveland on Thursday.

Turner scored a disappointing nine points with only three assists in Boston's Game 2 loss versus Cleveland, but he did lead the team with 12 rebounds.

Cleveland is surprising Boston with unexpected tight perimeter defense. Other than Isaiah Thomas, Boston's guards and wings have had a poor series versus the Cavs. The Celtics hope to turn things around as they return home for Thursday's Game 3.

Turner recorded 12 points (4-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and a steal in 34 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Cavaliers.

Turner didn't necessarily have the best day shooting the ball, but considering he had the second highest amount field goal attempts on his team, that at least marks a good sign for his fantasy value. While his inconsistency is always something to be aware of, he'll still most likely get a ton of minutes from here on out, so that could potentially give him an opportunity for some decent performances as the series goes on.

Turner had a nice all-around game with 15 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, and four steals in 27 minutes in the win over Cleveland on Sunday.

Turner may have found his role as a point forward and has averaged 7.6 assists in his last five games. It will be interesting to see if the Celtics continue to allow him to have the ball in his hands going forward. For now, he continues to be a nice value play.

Turner scored 15 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 30 minutes Monday against the Hornets.

Although Turner can be inconsistent offensively, he continues to contribute in other categories as he has recorded at least five rebounds and at least five assists in five of his last six games. If you can live with his offensive limitations, he can still provide solid value.

Turner posted 15 points, seven rebounds, and five assists in 36 minutes of action Friday against the Knicks.

Turner has been a solid all-around contributor of later, averaging 15.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists, and 0.6 steals over the last five games. While he's struggling from the free-throw line (65 percent) during that span, his multi-category production makes him a strong asset in fantasy -- specifically in points leagues.

Turner recorded a triple-double in 40 minutes Monday against the Nets as he scored 19 points (9-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds, 12 assists and one block.

Turner may be one of the more frustrating players to try and predict his fantasy value. He has the ability to put up great overall stat lines like this, but also can throw up really bad nights and turn the ball over a lot. Although he is inconsistent, he is an intriguing option especially in daily leagues when he has a favorable matchup.

Turner started with Marcus Smart (suspension) out Sunday and played 39 minutes in an overtime loss to the Pistons. He finished the game with 23 points (10-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, eight assists and three steals.

Turner has now played 30 or more minutes in each of his past three games, and is averaging 16 points per game in those contests. It's very unlikely that he keeps that pace up, especially considering Smart will return to the starting role next game.
