Rookie Evan Turner was limited to under 13 minutes in Wednesday’s loss to Orlando due to what was called a muscle spasm. Today, Collins explained the injury further.

“The rib kind of popped out of place,” Collins said. “When it does it throws your back into spasm. It is nothing structurally down where you would have pain in your legs and all that kind of stuff. We expected him to be very sore because they popped that thing back in.”

In the locker room after Wednesday’s game, Turner said that he’d be ready to go tomorrow night when the team host’s San Antonio.

Collins reiterated today that Turner expected to be ready.
