Rookie Evan Turner Earns Starting Role

Philadelphia 76ers rookie swingman Evan Turner had moved into the starting line up recently due to an injury to Andre Iguodala. Iguodala returned to action on Friday and Turner started alongside him for the first time.

The Breakdown
Previously, head coach Doug Collins had gone with Andres Nocioni as the starting shooting guard next to Iguodala. Turner's already been playing nearly 30 minutes a game, so his value should not change drastically even with the starting nod. Still, he's the type of player that can help tremendously in category leagues because of his all-around production. He's worth a speculative add in the 40% of leagues where he's available.
