76ers swingman Evan Turner has right knee soreness.

He injured his knee during Saturday's 116-106 setback at Milwaukee.

Brown said Turner, who was limping noticeably in the game, would have be listed questionable if the Sixers were scheduled to play Monday night. However, they're off until this upcoming Saturday’s game at Phoenix.  The 6-foot-7, 217-pounder is expected to be healthy in time to face the Suns.

Turner struggled through 2 for 15 shooting and finished with 10 points against the Bucks. This came one night after he finished with a game-high 29 points and scored the game-winning basket at the buzzer against Brooklyn.
