Hedo Turkoglu SF LAC 3 Months

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.

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised lower back) will miss at least Games 1 and 2 of the Clippers' second-round matchup vs. Portland.

Turkoglu's return date is up in the air and may lead to more playing time for Danny Granger and Jared Dudley, though they combined to play just three minutes in the Clippers' Game 7 victory on Saturday.

Hedo Turkoglu's bruised lower back will sideline him during Game 6 on Thursday.

Turkoglu has given the Clippers a bit of perimeter firepower in under 10 minutes per game during the postseason, and his absence should mean a few extra minutes for Jared Dudley and Matt Barnes. He was expected to have an MRI but the results have not yet been disclosed, so for now we're considering him day-to-day.

Hedo Turkoglu is expected to have an MRI after bruising his lower back during Tuesday's win vs. the Warriors.

Turkoglu has averaged eight minutes per game in the playoffs, making 4-of-10 shots from downtown in a spot-minute role off the bench. His MRI will be performed on Wednesday and the results should be announced prior to Thursday's Game 6 in Oakland.

Hedo Turkoglu suffered a lower back contusion during the second half of Tuesday's game and he is doubtful to return.

He was in some pain and needed to be helped to the locker room. The Clippers have gotten a lot more out of Turkoglu than most expected, but he may miss time in the future. He'll likely be re-evaluated on Wednesday.

Hedo Turkoglu hit four 3-point shots for 12 points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Pardon us if we don't race to the wire to pick him up, as one look at his game log will tell you. If he can revive his career over a longer stretch we'll let you know. After all, Jared Dudley might be as out of shape as O.J. Mayo these days.

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised knee) was scoreless with seven rebounds, three assists and one block in 12 minutes vs. the Sixers on Sunday.

Turkoglu was a true game-time decision and his knee isn't yet 100 percent recovered. That didn't matter on Sunday, as he was still able to post a +/- rating of +15 without even attempting a shot in the Clippers' romp over the Sixers. We're taking Turkoglu off the injury report, as he should be ready to go on Wednesday.

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised knee) is listed as day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game vs. the 76ers.

Turkoglu hurt himself in the first half of Wednesday's game and the injury kept him out of both Friday's game and Saturday's practice. Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley will each get a handful of extra minutes if Hedo isn't ready to suit up.

Hedo Turkoglu will not play on Friday due to a bruised right knee.

It was only a matter of time before Hedo missed time after so much time away from the NBA. Turkoglu has no fantasy value and fantasy owners can expect Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley should absorb some minutes.

Hedo Turkoglu played seven minutes in his season debut on Friday night, scoring two points with one board.

He looked like a guy that hasn't played basketball in quite some time. Turkoglu was slow getting up and down the court and it's hard imagine the Clippers asking him to do much dribbling. He can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
