Hedo Turkoglu SF LAC 17 Days

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.

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.
