Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner has been diagnosed with a slight fracture in his right hand.

Turner is officially listed as “day-to-day” and he dodged a bullet as the injury doesn’t require surgery.

The 24-year-old practiced with the team on Tuesday, and he may be out a game or two just for injury precaution.

The injury is an avulsion fracture, which has a bone being pulled away by a bone or ligament.

Turner had a protective brace on his hand, and he’ll most likely have to wear it for a couple weeks up to a month.

His fantasy value may take a slight dip if the fracture affects his shooting, and he’s averaging 12.4 points and 6.8 rebounds so far this season.
