Pelicans G/F Tyreke Evans back at practice
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/11/14) Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans has returned to practice for the first time in camp, the New Orleans Times-Picayune has reported.
Evans has been dealing with a hamstring injury that had him considered questionable for the start of the regular season. His earlier-than-expected comeback should quell those concerns.
Though his PPG has slipped in each of his five seasons in the NBA, Evans still averaged 14.5 points, 5.0 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game after joining New Orleans last year.
Injury could force slow start for Tyreke Evans
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(9/29/14) We're almost exactly a month away from the start of the season at this point, and we already don't know if Tyreke Evans will be available for the Pelicans. Should his hamstring injury impact how you view him this season?
Evans was a dominant Fantasy option for the last few months of last season, though he benefitted from the team's many injuries. Evans got off to a slow start to the season, but averaged 20.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game. However, he was already expected to take on a smaller role than that this season, with the Pelicans presumably entering the season healthy.
Now, Evans will miss all of training camp, along with possibly the first few games of the season. His role was to be determined based on preseason performance, so this certainly makes things confusing. Evans will battle for the starting shooting guard or small forward spot, but could end up coming off the bench.
The Pelicans' preponderance of ballhandlers makes Evans an awkward fit even at the best of times, given how much he struggles off the ball. With this injury, Evans could get off to another slow start this season. Consider him more of a mid-round Fantasy option at this point.
Tyreke Evans to miss at least three weeks with hamstring injury
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans will miss three to five weeks due to a strained right hamstring, The Times Picayune reports.
"Tyreke injured his hamstring playing pickup basketball out of town last week," general manager Dell Demps said in a statement."He is back in New Orleans rehabbing with our medical staff."
Evans underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee last May as well. He's questionable to be ready for the start of the regular season.

|(5/17/14) Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans underwent minor arthroscopic surgery to clean out a scar tissue in his right knee, the team announced. He is expected to need 6-8 weeks of recovery.|
Evans finished fifth on the team in scoring at 14.5 points per game, while adding 4.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 72 appearances.
Tyreke Evans could push Eric Gordon to bench
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/14) Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans closed his season out strong after a slow start, and the impetus was a move to the starting lineup March. After he found success as a starter, the team might make the move permanent next season.
From March 1 on, he averaged 20.0 points, 6.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, while starting 21 of the team's final 22 games. His success could lead the team to consider a full-time switch next season, and coach Monty Williams told the team's official website that is something they will consider, especially with incumbent shooting guard Eric Gordon's inability to stay healthy yet again.
Evans ended up finishing fifth on the team in scoring at 14.5 points per game, while adding 4.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists, and appearing in the third-most games.
|Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans will look to put his troublesome knee injury behind him come 2014-15, after having minor arthroscopic surgery to clean out a scar tissue in mid-May. Evans finished fifth on the team in scoring at 14.5 points per game, while adding 4.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 72 appearances. He also stepped up as a starter while the team dealt with some injuries last season. He started 22 games, including 13 as a guard. Overall, he averaged 19.9 points on 49.6 percent from the field and 32.5 percent from downtown. He also averaged 6.3 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 1.4 steals per contest. However, as a starting forward, he averaged 21.9 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 53.4 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from behind the arc in nine games. Although it's a small sample size, Evans should be comfortably inserted into the starting lineup as a small forward. Target him as early as in the Round 7 come Draft Day.
