Stan Hochman of the Philadelphia Daily News told 94WIP that Philadelphia 76ers guard Evan Turner is suffering from an undisclosed mystery problem, according to CBS Sports.

“There’s an explanation for Turner’s inconsistent play. One of these days, the team, with Turner’s permission, will reveal it. And then the criticism will back off,” Hochman said.

Hotchman told the radio that he was given knowledge of the situation with the understanding that he would not reveal exactly what the problem was. Turner, 23, is averaging 7.7 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in 38 contests this season. Last year he averaged 7.2 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.
