Evan Turner has sore right knee, isn't expected to miss time on upcoming roadtrip

(Associated Press)

76ers swingman Evan Turner is suffering from right knee soreness.

Turner, who sustained the knee pain in Saturday’s 116-106 loss at Milwaukee, “did pull up lame today,” coach Brett Brown said. The fourth-year man was on the court briefly Sunday, as the team went through a light practice that largely involved stretching and recovery conditioning following games on back-to-back nights.

Brown said Turner would be a game-time decision if the Sixers had a game in the near future. Given that the Sixers (8-20) don’t play again until Saturday in Phoenix, Brown sounded optimistic that Turner shouldn’t miss any time.

“He has a sore knee. It’s nothing to be concerned about,” Brown said. “He played a lot of minutes the night before in a tough win (Friday in overtime against Brooklyn). He had a great game.”

Turner, the Sixers’ leading scorer, is averaging 19.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists. He’s the only player to have appeared in all of the Sixers’ 28 games.
