The Indiana Pacers traded for Evan Turner at the deadline in an effort to get more scoring in the postseason, and he'll get a chance to provide some on Tuesday in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the visiting Miami Heat.

After practicing on Monday, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun Sentinel confirmed that Turner will be active. Turner missed Game 1's victory with strep throat.

JENKINS: New commissioner Adam Silver is his own man

The 25-year-old averaged 7.1 points in 27 games (two starts) in the regular season for Indiana, but he's averaged only 3.5 points in 13.3 minutes per game in the playoffs, playing in only 11 of the Pacers' 14 contests.

Indiana is 3-0 in the postseason when Turner doesn't play.
