Evan Turner SG/SF BOS 2 Days

Turner played 27 minutes as a starter in the win over the Timberwolves on Friday. He had 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds, and four assists.

Turner is getting regular minutes and is not providing much of anything. He has not hit a 3-pointer in his last five games (six misses), but has not missed a free throw in that span (five makes). He is only ownable in deeper leagues and will probably give his starting spot to rookie Marcus Smart before too long.

Turner will start at point guard against the Timberwolves on Friday, the play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports.

Turner will receive the first shot at point guard after the Celtics traded Rajon Rondo on Thursday. Marcus Smart will also be available against the Timberwolves, but he will come off the bench.Turner is averaging 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 23 minutes this season, but could receive an increase going forward.

Turner moved into the starting lineup with Avery Bradley (illness) sidelined Friday, but he only managed to contribute 13 points, two rebounds, and one assist during 36 minutes on the court against the Knicks.

Friday's performance was the second-highest minute total that Turner has played throughout his 21 games this season. Considering that Bradley is only dealing with a common illness, Turner's bump in minutes won't likely have much staying power.

Avery Bradley is out with an illness, opening up more minutes for Turner, making him a strong play in daily leagues Friday.

Turner scored 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-2 3Pt) to go along with six rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in 39 minutes Monday against the Wizards.

Turner's 39 minutes Monday were a season-high, but that was largely because the game went into double overtime. He has had some nice performances this season, but don't expect him to produce like this on a regular basis.

Turner started Saturday in the win over the Bulls and had 19 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, and six assists in 32 minutes.

Turner had not done much off the Celtic bench, but was all over the court in the upset win in Chicago. Rajon Rondo (hand) is expected to be back for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, so Turner's fantasy relevance could be short-lived.

Turner will start at point guard Saturday against the Bulls, CSN New England reports.

Turner is getting the start with the tandem of Rajon Rondo (hand) and Marcus Smart (ankle) sidelined. The former Ohio State standout should see a considerable bump in minutes while that duo remains sidelined. The only obstacle in prohibiting this from happening is that Phil Pressey will likely see a jump in minutes as well.

Turner is only averaging 19 minutes on the court during Boston's first five games of the season.

Turner is currently coming off the bench in Boston and is limited as a result. However, his ability to play point guard, shooting guard, and small forward might bode well for him if injuries become a problem with the Celtics.

Turner is in the mix for minutes at point guard, and could actually be the front-runner to fill in while Rajon Rondo (hand) is out for 6-8 weeks, NBA.com's Emily Austen reports.

Coach Brad Stevens said with Rondo out, Turner is the team's best pick-n-roll option, and noted that Turner is better when he has the ball in his hands. Certainly as a coach, if playing Turner is inevitable, letting him handle the ball is probably the lesser of two evils, but he can be a bit of a black hole at times. However, if he's indeed ahead of Marcus Smart and Phil Pressey on the depth chart, he will be a useful fantasy option, at least until Rondo is healthy enough to return.

Evan Turner's agent David Falk explained that Brad Stevens was a big reason Turner elected to sign with the Celtics.

"I think Brad [Stevens] had an opportunity to take a player with a high skill set and a very strong desire to prove what happened in Indiana was a mistake," said Falk. "I think that Brad has a chance to put him in the right sets and have a great bargain in free agency. That's why we put this thing together. We were looking for a coach that felt like Evan could be an important contributor to the team." Turner will have to earn his minutes in Boston, and we don't see him as much more than a late-round flier at this point.
