Description: The Clippers finalized a contract with Hedo Turkoglu on Thursday, according to nba.com.
Insight: He gives the Clippers some depth but not much else. Turkoglu (2.9 ppg for the Magic in 2012-13) is unlikely to be of much use to fantasy owners in his return to the NBA.

Insight: He gives the Clippers some depth but not much else. Turkoglu (2.9 ppg for the Magic in 2012-13) is unlikely to be of much use to fantasy owners in his return to the NBA.
 
12/24/2013 7:33:00 PM
Description: According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Magic will waive Hedo Turkoglu early in January to save about $6 million in salary.
Insight: Turkoglu has no future with the young Magic team, but might find work as a bit player on a contending team. He no longer has any fantasy value.
 
4/10/2013 5:38:00 PM
Description: According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Magic have "essentially shut down" healthy veterans Hedo Turkoglu and Al Harrington for the season.
Insight: The Magic are giving their minutes to younger players. Turkoglu has played 11 games this season. He broke his hand in the season opener and was suspended 20 games for testing positive for a banned substance. Harrington missed most of the season with a knee injury and has played just 10 games. Both are recovered from their injuries now but the Magic need to see Tobias Harris, Maurice Harkless and Andrew Nicholson.

Insight: Turkoglu has missed most of the season due to a broken hand and has averaged just 2.9 ppg in the 11 games he has played.
 
1/28/2013 10:46:00 AM
Description: Orlando forward Hedo Turkoglu (hand) scrimmaged Saturday, but there is still no timetable for his return.
Insight: Turkoglu broke his hand in the opening game of the season and was awful in five games after making his return at the end of December. He will continue to rehab and work on his conditioning and will return when he has confidence in his hand.

Insight: Turkoglu broke his hand in the opening game of the season and was awful in five games after making his return at the end of December. He will continue to rehab and work on his conditioning and will return when he has confidence in his hand.

Description: Orlando forward Hedo Turkoglu (hand) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against Toronto. SOURCE: Josh Robbins, Orlando Sentinel
Insight: Turkoglu broke his hand in the opening game of the season and hasn't played since. He averaged 10.9 points, 4.4 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 threes last season and should come close to those numbers the rest of this season.
 
11/14/2012 7:07:00 PM
Description: Orlando forward Hedo Turkoglu has encountered a setback in his recovery from a broken left hand. He's out indefinitely.
Insight: A report from John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com suggests the setback could add another month to Turkoglu's recovery time. With Turkoglu out, the Magic have been using Arron Afflalo at the three with J.J. Redick and E'Twuan Moore starting at the two guard positions.
 
11/2/2012 9:24:00 PM
Description: Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu broke his left hand Friday, according to John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com.
Insight: Turkoglu played 17 minutes and scored six points on 3-of-4 shooting but he will be out for an extended period of time. The Magic didn't immediately announce a timetable.
 
10/22/2012 12:12:00 PM
Description: Orlando forward Hedo Turkoglu has been sitting out with back spasms the past few days.
Insight: Turkoglu will be asked to play a bigger role on offense this season now that Dwight Howard has moved on to Los Angeles. The increased shot volume could potentially lift Turkoglu's PPG but that could also be offset by the fact that he'll be double-teamed more than he was when Dwight was on the team. Realistically, Turkoglu is on the wrong end of 33 years old and probably won't be a particularly useful fantasy player during the 2012-13 campaign.
 
4/6/2012 9:49:00 PM
Description: Hedo Turkoglu will indeed undergo surgery to repair a facial fracture. Turkoglu, who broke his cheekbone after getting hit in the face by Carmelo Anthony in a game Thursday night, will be out for the remainder of the regular season.
Insight: Turkoglu will need about three weeks to recover from the surgery so it's possible that he could return for the first round of the playoffs. While Turkoglu is out, Orlando could opt to go small by using either J.J. Redick or Chris Duhon at the two and moving Jason Richardson to small forward. Or they could slide Ryan Anderson to the three when he returns from a sprained ankle and continue to use Glen Davis at the four. We'll see what Stan Van Gundy decides to do.
 
4/6/2012 5:10:00 PM
Description: Hedo Turkoglu could need surgery to fix his broken cheek bone. Turkoglu injured his cheek in a game Thursday night against the Knicks.
Insight: Turkoglu (10.7 ppg this year) isn't the fantasy force that he used to be (19.5 ppg in 2007-08). Usually players who injure their face wear a protective mask and are able to play through the injury (a la Richard Hamilton). But if Turkoglu really does need surgery, he's guaranteed to miss at least a couple games.
 
3/12/2012 2:00:00 PM
Description: Hedo Turkoglu completed his one-game suspension and should be back in the lineup tonight against the Miami Heat.
Insight: Turkoglu has had an up and down season, but is still a contributor in all categories. He's averaging 11.2 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 4.7 apg and 1.8 three-pointers per game.
 
3/18/2011 9:21:00 PM
Description: Hedo Turkoglu filled up the stat sheet on Friday with 15 points, nine boards, eight assists, three triples, and a block in the win over Denver.
Insight: Turkoglu played 31 minutes and has really picked up his game as of late. The slump appears to be over and all owners can consider him as a must-start player under normal circumstances.
 
2/24/2011
Description: Turkoglu had 19 points, eight assists, and four rebounds in 37 minutes of work tonight. He also hit four threes and had two steals.
Insight: Turkoglu is averaging just 10.1 points per game so far this year. Hedo hasn't played up to this level in a while, so it's nice to see him have a good game. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/9/2011 1:59:00 AM
Description: Hedo Turkoglu embraced the role of point forward by dishing out 17 dimes to go with his 13 points, five steals, a block, and two threes.
Insight: This story is just as strange as all those animals dying in Oklahoma. For some reason Hedo has actually Magic when he puts on the Orlando uniform. He's not this good, so it might not be a bad idea to see what he could get in return.
 
1/3/2011 9:27:00 PM
Description: Hedo Turkoglu messed around and got a triple-double against the Warriors with 10 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists, five steals, and a three.
Insight: Hedo apparently loves Orlando more than all the little kids in the world (Disney World is basically in Orlando). He is capable of putting up big numbers and should be owned in all leagues.
 
12/28/2010 12:02:00 AM
Description: Turkoglu had 20 points, seven rebounds and five assists tonight.
Insight: He is playing very well since being traded to the Magic with no end in sight. Congratulations if you hung onto him long enough to enjoy his production. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/21/2010 7:01:00 PM
Description: Turkoglu will start at power forward for the Magic tonight.
Insight: Turkoglu is shooting 43.7 percent from the field this season. He has hit 42 three pointers and is shooting 42 percent from behind the arc. (RapidDraft.com)
