These players will hurt/help you in turnovers

The 10 turnovers committed by Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin on Monday probably did not overshadow the double digits in the three other categories that he amassed -- it is an historic quadruple-double! -- but for some fantasy managers it is a reminder that there is a modest cost for those who handle the basketball the most.

Turnovers matter for most formats, and while it would never lead someone to avoid stars like Griffin, NBA leader (by a lot!) James Harden and likely Rookie of the Year Luka Doncic (who is predictably piling them on as well), it is nice to find a player who, well, handles the ball cleanly.
