"He looks tremendous," coach Alvin Gentry said. "I've got to figure out what he was doing. I think he's so locked in, so dedicated to having a great season. I've always been a huge fan of his."

|(4/20/15) Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans will play while Jrue Holiday has been ruled out of Monday's Game 2 matchup against the Warriors, the team announced.
Evans was able to participate in pre-game warmups. He's dealing with a bone bruise in his knee sustained in Saturday's Game 1 loss to Golden State. Evans came into the day questionable and was a game-time decision.
Holiday is dealing with lingering pain from a stress reaction in his leg. He was hopeful of playing but was also deemed questionable and a game-time decision. In games Holiday has played in since returning from the injury, he's seen his minutes limited.
Pelicans' Evans (knee), Holiday (leg) game-time decsions
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/20/15) Pelicans guards Tyreke Evans, who suffered a bone bruise on his knee during the team's Game 1 loss, and Jrue Holiday, who continues to feel pain from a stress fracture in his leg will both be a last-minute decisions for Monday's Game 2 against the Warriors, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Evans will be evaulated Monday to determine if he will be able to run on the leg. He did not practice Sunday.
"(I will) see how it feels and how the pain level is. I couldn't run full-speed. If you can't run full-speed, you don't want to be out there against this team," the Pelicans second-leading scorer said.
Holiday's minutes have been limited since returning from the injury to limit soreness, and he may be held out of the game as a precaution.
|With Jrue Holiday out for much of the season yet again, the Pelicans' playmaking duties fell on swing man Tyreke Evans once again, and he responded with a huge season for Fantasy. Evans averaged 16.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game, and ended up 19th in Fantasy scoring per game in standard leagues. Holiday is healthy to start the season, but the recurrence of his leg injuries over the last two seasons means Evans could still end up seeing plenty of time running the show. He probably won't be an elite option like last season, but Evans is well worth targeting after the first few rounds go by on Draft Day.
