The Indiana Pacers have not had the season they expected and as a result, a lot of their major contributors are on the trade block. The team is actively seeking a move for Caris LeVert, Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner with an eye to the future. A trade for Turner just became more difficult after the center suffered a stress reaction in his foot.
Myles Turner injury updates
The Pacers say Turner will be re-evaluated in two weeks, which is a significant timeline with regards to his trade value. There are reports Indiana is seeking at least a first-round pick and a promising young player or multiple first-round picks for Turner.

Fantasy basketball impact
This is a boost for Domantas Sabonis, who now takes over as the lead big man for the Pacers. Isaiah Jackson, who has proven he can be a great rim protector, will also get some run in the frontcourt.
The Pacers weren’t being backed heavily to win many games of late, so this likely doesn’t change much from a betting standpoint. Fading Indiana should continue to be the norm for those making wagers.
