Pacers’ Center Myles Turner Day-to-Day Due to Hand Injury
January 19Michael ArinzeSportsGrid
Pacers’ center Myles Turner is day-to-day with an avulsion fracture to his right hand. This type of injury occurs when the tendon or ligament separates from a small piece of the bone similar to an ankle sprain. Turner is not expected to require surgery for the injury. The former Texas first-rounder Turner is right around his career numbers this season as he’s averaging 12.4 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
In his absence, Goga Bitadze could be called in to fill in for Turner. The 21-year old Georgian picked up a Grade 2 right ankle sprain earlier in the season but he’s no longer listed on the injury report. Bitadze has only appeared in one game this season.
Indiana is currently second in the Central Division and trail Milwaukee by just a half-game. They won’t be back in action until Wednesday when they host the Dallas Mavericks. Indiana is currently favored to make the playoffs at -325, they’re +700 to win their division, and +5500 to win the title.
