The Indiana Pacers received disturbing news Tuesday: Myles Turner suffers a slight fracture in his right hand. The player will be evaluated in the next few days to determine the degree of fracture and if he needs to repair it by surgical intervention or not. Turner had taken a back seat to the Pacers attack earlier this season before the emergence of Domantas Sabonis and Malcolm Brogdon.

But he was still an important piece, especially in defense. Turner leads the NBA in blocks with an average of 4.2 per game. His last performance in the League took place on January 14 against the Trail Blazers. Turner signed an 11-point double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds and helped his team win, 111-87.

Already in the last game of the Pacers against the Clippers, Turner did not play due to discomfort in his hand that finally revealed itself as a small fracture. In a few days, it will be known how long Turner will be away.
