The Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner will miss the last weeks of the regular season because of a stress reaction in his foot, according to Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN.
Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner — out since mid-January with a left foot stress reaction — will miss the rest of the season, sources tell ESPN. Turner has made good progress in his recovery, but the Pacers have only seven games left and will miss the playoffs.

Turner has been dealing with the injury since mid-January and has already missed 32 consecutive games. The Pacers have seven games left to conclude the regular season so the team and Turner decided not to return and stay in recovery.
Turner averaged 12.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks in 42 games this season. The numbers are very close to the ones he’s had in previous campaigns. For the 2022-23 season, we could see a jump in numbers and presence in the offense now that Domantas Sabonis plays for the Sacramento Kings.
The Pacers are currently the 13th seed of the Eastern Conference with a 25-50 record.
