Trail Blazers swingman Evan Turner said he's hopeful his toe injury will improve enough to play in Saturday's Game 4 after being ruled out for Thursday night's Game 3. But he said he “just couldn't put any real pressure on the big toe” and it's still “painful and sensitive to the touch” after he got kicked “dead-on” in Game 2. “I don't really like sitting out games. I've probably missed 15 games my whole life,” said Turner, who made the trip to New Orleans with the team. “So I really want to make sure I have the opportunity to see if I can help my team.”
