NBA Rumors: Myles Turner Returning "Early March At The Latest"

The Indiana Pacers were said to be shopping center Myles Turner when disaster struck for both the player and the team.   Turner suffered a stress fracture in his foot and as a result, his trade value has seriously diminished, but the Pacers should still be able to make a deal for the former 11th overall pick if the Pacers are open and willing to share his medical information with a potential suitor.  

Adrian Wojnarowski reported on the injury and what it means for a potential trade last month:

While stress fractures can be a lingering issue for athletes - specifically basketball players, Jake Fischer recently suggested that Turner could be returning from injury soon after the All-Star break, which would undoubtedly raise his trade stock:

Myles Turner, from what I was told, had a recent scan on his foot and it does seem like he will be ready to come back pretty shortly after the All-Star break, probably early March at the latest.

Fischer goes on to say that the news should give teams some confidence in making a deal for the dynamic two-way center and there is a good chance he could be moved before the deadline.
