Turner sustained both of his ailments in the Pacers’ season opener against the Nets when he got hit by forward DeMarre Carroll on a cross-screen.
Without Turner, Indiana’s starting lineup will most likely feature Darren Collison, Victor Oladipo, Bojan Bogdanovic, Thaddeus Young and Domantas Sabonis.
Turner registered a double-double on opening night, scoring 21 points and grabbing 14 rebounds while shooting 8-of-13 from the field.
