Marc Stein: The Mavericks have been frequently linked to a trade pursuit of Indiana’s Myles Turner, but league sources say Dallas had already backed off on its interest even before Turner’s foot injury and with its team defense already flourishing at No. 5 overall in defensive efficiency
Adrian Wojnarowski: Pacers center Myles Turner is expected to be sidelined beyond the February 10 NBA trade deadline, sources tell ESPN. Team says he will be re-examined in two weeks, but teams interested in trading for Turner will have to do due diligence on injury as they weigh offers.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Turner's been central to Indiana's trade talks, and a number of teams have shown interest. The injury doesn't make a trade impossible, but it certainly could be an obstacle in Pacers getting max value for him at deadline. Team can always wait for the offseason to make a deal too.
Pacers forward/center Myles Turner – who missed yesterday’s game against the Clippers due to a sore left ankle/foot – has been examined by multiple specialists, who have determined the injury to be a stress reaction in his left foot. Turner will continue to receive treatment and will be re-examined in two weeks, at which time the Pacers' medical team will re-assess his status.
James Boyd: #Pacers say Myles Turner is OUT tomorrow against the Clippers with a sore left foot. He’ll get a second opinion and still travel with the team.

Scott Agness: Myles Turner says he’s still a ways away, part of a 6-8 week recovery period. "It’s an unfortunate injury because you use your big toe for everything."
J. Michael Falgoust: Turner: "It's very painful. Every time you take a step you feel it. There's only so much you can do."
Scott Agness: Turner says he’s week-to-week. Dealing with turf toe, he hasn’t even returned to basketball activities “The only thing that is going to heal this is time. Thankfully, there’s no surgery, nothing like that."
J. Michael Falgoust: There isn’t any update on Myles Turner who has turf toe. I’m told he’s still trying to get back on the floor for #Pacers but his return remains a question. That injury is hard to judge and it doesn’t take much to re-injure again if it’s not 100%
Tony East: Turner and Sabonis remain out against Portland tomorrow. Bitadze and Lamb are both questionable again. Zach Collins is out for the Blazers.
Tony East: Bjorkgren with some injury updates: Myles and Domas did not practice today. They did some work in the weight room. Lamb was 40% in practice. McDermott was in a full practice today. Bitadze shot a little bit, his ankle is getting better, but he didn't do much on court.

J. Michael Falgoust: Bjorkgren: "For him to show this toughness to be out on the floor tonight it's really big" #PacersMagic
As long as Myles Turner can handle the discomfort in his right hand, he can play for the Indiana Pacers. After missing the last games with an avulsion fracture in his shooting hand, the Pacers could have him back for Friday's home game vs. the Orlando Magic. It's Turner's call. "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."

J. Michael Falgoust: McMillan in Turner: “He’s feeling better but he’s a no-go” ... note: no X-rays or MRIs required. #PacersKnicks
Scott Agness: Myles Turner feels fine two days later. “No signs of a concussion and I’m thankful for that.” Surgery on his broken nose took 10 minutes. He will get fitted for a mask after practice.
During Monday's 116-108 win against the Atlanta Hawks, they found that out when Myles Turner suffered a broken nose and couldn't return. His status for 2019 has yet to be determined though coach Nate McMillan is optimistic he'll be available for the start of a five-game road trip that begins Jan. 4 at the Chicago Bulls. "The hope is that he doesn't have a concussion but he can play with a broken nose," McMillan said. "You just put a mask on, but if there is a concussion that's something a little different." Turner will be re-evaluated Tuesday and receive a mask to protect the injury.

J. Michael Falgoust: For tomorrow in Charlotte, Oladipo is questionable (sore right knee) as is Turner (left ankle sprain) #PacersHornets

Donatas Urbonas on Vasilije Micic: At least for now, there’s a feeling that he’s leaning towards the NBA. But it’s not about OKC, there is no place for Micic in OKC, or at least the place where Micic would be happy about the role he thinks about playing NBA. So his agent is working for making a trade for him. So if Micic is going to the NBA, it’s probably the most likely that there’s some other team which will trade for him.
Green made the remark on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” postgame show Thursday night following the Warriors defeating the Dallas Mavericks in five games. “Draymond broke the code,” Haslem told Yahoo Sports after the Heat’s 111-103 victory. “You ain’t supposed to say some s*** like that. That’s disrespectful. He know better than that.”
Barry Jackson: P.J. Tucker: “Everyone picked them, even though we’re No. 1” seed…. He said everyone (presumably teammates) laughed when Draymond Green said last night that Golden State will be playing Boston in the Finals: “It’s kind of weird to be a player and pick another team”
Reporter: “How you describe Jimmy’s game?” Kyle Lowry: “It’s f***ing incredible! My bad, my bad. Don’t fine me NBA, that was really by mistake, I promise.” Jimmy Butler: “Fine him, fine him. Y’all fine me all the time.”
The Celtics, so celebrated for their defense, made it easy for him. They mishandled the assignment, leaving Butler with a clear path to the hoop, and he pounced, driving for a layup and absorbing contact for good measure. It was a winning play that broke a tie game, along with the Celtics’ resolve. “His competitive will is as high as anybody that has played this game,” Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said.
