Evan Turner started at point guard on Wednesday and had 11 points, seven rebounds, six assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 5-of-9 shooting.
The Scoop:He's likely to come off the bench for most of the season and Marcus Smart should start at PG while Rajon Rondo is out with a broken hand. But Turner looks much better as a Celtic than he did the last few seasons, at least in the preseason. He might be worth a late flier in your league, and will also be worth keeping an eye on as the season starts if he's undrafted in your league.
Evan Turner started at point guard against his former team on Thursday during a 111-91 win over the Sixers, handing out 10 assists to go with six points, five boards and two steals.
The Scoop:He picked apart the Philly defense on Thursday and it was all just too easy. Turner has gained a fan in coach Brad Stevens and he'll have a decent chance to start at the point on opening night. Plus, he's going to get several minute at small forward. Still, he hasn't had a very suitable game for fantasy, so he's more of a late-round target with lower upside.
Evan Turner will start at point guard against the Raptors on Wednesday.
The Scoop:Marcus Smart is going to come off the bench and carry the second unit. Coach Brad Stevens has grown fondly of Turner and he's going to allow him to run much of the offense while Rajon Rondo (hand) is out. Still, his game doesn't translate very well to fantasy, so he's only a late-round target.
The Scoop:Excluding his time as a dual-SF lineup with Gerald Wallace of around 100 minutes, Green only played about 30 minutes at power forward all season. Still, he was nowhere near even 10 percent of his playing time at power forward last season. Green certainly has the size at 6'9, 235 pounds and playing to the basket could really help, so maybe this isn't a negative. He's only a late-round flier, but we'll see how he does in the preseason.
