Evan Turner out against Bucks today

About an hour and a half before today's game with the Milwaukee Bucks, Sixers forward Evan Turner made his way to the court for pregame warmups. I asked him how his thigh was, as he took a knee to it on Saturday in Washington. "Gonna find out now," he said.

Apparently it wasn't good as Turner was a last-minute scratch. It's probably nothing more than soreness, but bad enough that the swingman and training staff decided not to risk it. The bet is that he'll be back for Wednesday's home game against Denver.
