Myles Turner (hand) return to Pacers based on pain tolerance
Indiana Pacers forward/center Myles Turner's availability for Friday against the Orlando Magic is based on the pain tolerance of his fractured right hand.
"It's a broken bone. Real small. Real miniscule. There's really not much you can do for it to heal," Turner said after Thursday's practice session. "No surgery. No time off. It's just one of those things you've got to get used to." It doesn't sound like Turner will be out much longer, but Doug McDermott will likely make another start Friday if Turner can't play. He's listed as questionable on the injury report.
numberFire’s models project Turner for 34.8 FanDuel points versus the Magic if he plays and he has a salary of $7,800 on Friday’s slate. The Magic are allowing the seventh-fewest FanDuel points per game to the center position this season.
