Evan Turner on Wednesday tried out his third apparatus to protect his right hand, and the Trail Blazers guard said he is encouraged that the new approach will allow him to move past the frustration of playing with a protective device on his ball-dominant hand. Turner, who is 4-for-21 in the three games since returning from a broken hand, has balked at the clumsiness and limitations the previous protective devices have caused, at one point ripping off his glove during the second quarter of Tuesday’s loss against Milwaukee. “We had a different pad, where it doesn’t cover the palm,’’ Turner said Wednesday after trying out the new apparatus during a 45-minute workout in practice. “I played some pick up and I thought I shot it well. The three-point shot is going to look how it is going to look, but the mid-range was world class.’’
