Myles Turner suffers thumb injuryThe Indiana Pacers are 5-4 this season through Wednesday's games. Rookie big-man Myles Turner is receiving limited court time, contributing 6.1 ppg and 2.9 rpg in 15.9 minutes per game. But the Pacers will be without his services for the near future. Here's the Indianapolis Star reporting:

Myles Turner spent Thursday trying to stay close to his teammates. While his teammates practiced, Turner shot the ball not too far away from the main court in Bankers Life Fieldhouse. He also watched practice by working out on the elliptical machine.

But he couldn't join the team. The Indiana Pacers learned before their practice that Turner, the rookie the team selected with the 11th pick in the last summer’s draft, will miss at least the next four weeks after he chip fractured his left thumb during Wednesday’s victory over the Boston Celtics. The hand was heavily wrapped Thursday.

Turner sustained his injury in the first quarter when he tried to steal the ball from Boston’s Kelly Olynyk. Instead of swiping the ball away, Turner said his thumb hit Olynyk’s leg. Turner tried to play through the injury, but noticed a sharp pain in his thumb when he caught the ball on the next possession.
