Portland Trail Blazers wing Evan Turner miss his team’s 131-118 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday evening with an Achilles injury. Both the nature of the injury and the timeline of Turner’s return remain in doubt. Jamie Hudson of NBCSports Northwest brings the post-game update.

“It’s a lingering Achilles issue. It’s the worst it’s felt… It just felt too tight… I think a day of rest will be good and tomorrow we’ll re-evaluate,” Turner said.

She also quotes Turner claiming he’s a “quick healer”.

The Blazers take on the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas on Tuesday night.
