Myles Turner injury status vs. Cavs
Turner could now miss his fifth straight game for Indiana after being listed as questionable to play due to an ankle injury. It is also worth noting that he has been dealing with a back issue as well, which played a key role in his recent spell on the sidelines. Although, it’s a sore left ankle that has been officially identified as his issue for Sunday’s contest.
True enough, the Pacers have now downgraded Turner to out just before tipoff, per beat reporter Dustin Dopirak of the Indianapolis Star.
Haliburton, on the other hand, sounds like he really is done for the season. The All-Star point guard hasn’t featured in three consecutive contests for the Pacers, and Sunday’s absence against the Cavs will be his fourth straight.
As for the Cavs, they could be without Jarrett Allen, who has been listed as questionable to play. It would have been great to see the individual battle between Turner and Allen as two of the top big men in the game today, but it sounds like this won’t happen on Sunday.
Now, with regard to the question of Is Myles Turner playing tonight vs. the Cavs, the answer is no.
