Evan Turner has posted two twenty-four plus point games in his last three contests. Turner is the hot commodity on the waiver wire at the moment.
Analysis: Evan Turner’s three game hot streak is rather impressive. His stat line looks like- 22.0 points per game, 12.0 rebounds per game with 3.3 assists per game. Turner’s free throw shooting has been over eighty percent over the past week which is a huge turn around considering he is shooting 66% from the stripe this year. Turner has gotten at least thirty-two minutes in his last four games and he has responded well. He is shooting well from the field but he will never be a three point shooter. Turner is only averaging 0.2 3PM this year and you really would like your shooting guards and small forwards to be solid in the three ball department. Regardless, Turner is a solid rebounder at 5.9 RPG this year.
Evan Turner is available in a little over fifty percent of fantasy leagues and he is going fast. His points potential with his rebounding is rare to find on the wire at this point in the NBA season. He may not hit threes or get tons of steals but he makes a great add or a solid sell high option.
