Hedo Turkoglu SF LAC 4 weeks ago

Turkoglu moved back to his normal bench role Friday against the Wizards since Matt Barnes (hamstring) returned to the lineup. The backup finished with six points, one rebound, and two assists in 12 minutes.

Turkoglu benefited from two stints in the starting lineup but should see lackluster minutes off the bench for as long as Matt Barnes stays healthy. Because of this, Turkoglu's value is confined to the deepest of formats.

Turkoglu compiled six points (2-6 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist, and one block in 21 minutes in his first start replacing Matt Barnes (hamstring).

Turkoglu is the nominal small forward, but expect limited minutes and production because J.J. Redick will see his share of small forward minutes. The starting lineup could change Wednesday against the Kings since the Clippers are in the market for an actual small forward.

Turkoglu will start for Matt Barnes (hamstring) in Tuesday's game against the Hornets, the Orange County Register reports.

Turkoglu has a chance to see extended minutes in his role at starting small forward against the Hornets. The Clippers have a quick turnaround and will play the Kings on Wednesday so Turkoglu may benefit from multiple starts if Barnes needs extra days to rest.

Turkoglu finished with 12 points (4-7 FG, 4-7 3Pt), one rebound, and one steal in 21 minutes off the bench during Sunday's loss to the Warriors.

Turkoglu has seen extended playing time over his last two games, as an injury to Jamal Crawford (calf) opened up some playing time for him. He's averaging 10.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and two assists over his last two games. While Crawford may continue to sit for the next week or so, Turkoglu will still remain limited in his fantasy value, so don't expect him to provide much moving forward.

Turkoglu put up nine points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four rebounds, and one steal in 19 minutes Monday against the Mavericks.Turkoglu has seen double-digit minutes in each of in last two games. With Blake Griffin (elbow) out for at least three weeks, it is possible Turkoglu could continue to see an increase in minutes in the frontcourt, but he should only be considered as an option in the deepest of leagues.

Turkoglu is dealing with a stomach virus and will not take the court against the Raptors on Friday, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.

Turkoglu should be considered day-to-day ahead of Sunday's game against the Thunder. At just 9.2 minutes per game this season, his minutes will likely get evenly distributed across the active roster while he's sidelined.

Turkoglu has averaged only six minutes in three appearances for the Clippers this season.

No surprise here, as the Clippers view Turkoglu as more of a power forward than a wing player at this point in his career. With stars Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan firmly entrenched in starting roles, and Spencer Hawes soaking up much of the backup minutes for both guys, Turkoglu will be relegated to bench warmer duty unless Doc Rivers decides to shake things up.

Turkoglu is in better shape entering this season, and the Clippers hope for him to have a bigger impact off their bench, the LA Times reports.

Turkoglu currently only has value in the deepest of leagues, but if he can carve out a prominent role off the bench for the Clippers he could be of some use to owners looking for low-end points, rebounds, and assists. For now, leave Turkoglu on the waiver wire, but monitor his role moving forward.

Turkoglu signed a one-year deal with the Clippers on Friday, the Orange County Register reports.

The 35-year-old played a minimal role on the Clippers last season and there's no reason to believe why it'll be any different during the Clippers' 2014-15 campaign. Turkoglu averaged 10.3 minutes per game which only allowed for 3.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.3 blocks. With the likes of Blake Griffin, Spencer Hawes and Glen Davis ahead of him, the veteran will have a hard time getting on the court.

Hedo Turkoglu (back) will not play in Game 3 on Friday and his return isn't looking good for this series.

Turkoglu's presence is actually somewhat important for a Clippers unit forced to play Jared Dudley and Glen Davis. As it stands, they're going to have to get it done on their own.
