Ken Gurnick of hits us with more detail.

Justin Turner was in uniform but held out of drills and the game as he recovers from an annual lubricating injection into his arthritic left knee. The series of injections are preventative, designed to aid joint movement and stave off pain and stiffness.

This was the second in a series of injections the veteran will receive. The first came just before the start of spring training.

The former NL All-Star has had these hyaluronic acid injections ever since undergoing microfracture surgery in between the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

After the one-day layoff, Turner was back in the lineup on Tuesday as the Dodgers went to Scottsdale to take on the Diamondbacks.
