Pacers star Myles Turner expected to be out beyond the NBA trade deadline

As the NBA trade deadline inches closer, the Indiana Pacers are expected to be extremely active.

However, things took a rough turn as star big man Myles Turner suffered a foot injury that will force him to be out of the lineup past the Feb. 10 trade deadline, according to ESPN.

Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner is expected to be sidelined beyond the Feb. 10 trade deadline with a stress reaction in his left foot, complicating the franchise’s hopes to deal him prior to the offseason, sources told ESPN on Tuesday.

The Pacers remain hopeful that they could move Turner for a lucrative trade package. Recent reports suggested that the franchise is hoping to garner a pair of first-round selections in exchange for the 25-year-old.

Turner is currently leading the league with 2.8 blocks while averaging 12.9 points and 7.1 rebounds. He’s developed into one of the game’s best rim protectors while showcasing the ability to stretch the floor with his outside shooting.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks have both been linked to the Texas product, but there hasn’t been any movement on that front. The Mavericks have reportedly pulled themselves out of the mix, especially after the foot injury.

Meanwhile, the Lakers are hamstrung on what they can reasonably offer due to their contract situations on the roster. Talen Horton-Tucker is believed to be the only desired trade piece. He’s making $9 million this season in the first year of his three-year, $30.7 million deal.

The Pacers should have more clarity for Turner’s market as the trade deadline approaches.
