Tyreke Evans (personal reasons) will not play on Monday vs. the Wolves.

We have no idea where he's been since Mar. 24. The tank is real in Memphis.
Apr 9 - 2:05 PM

Tyreke Evans (personal reasons) is not with the team for Sunday.

Why didn't the Grizzlies trade him again?
Apr 7 - 6:34 PM

Tyreke Evans (personal reasons) is still not with the Grizzlies for Friday.

He's likely out for the year. Ben McLemore should continue to start next to Kobi Simmons at the guard spots. MarShon Brook has also been a revelation and is worth owning in all leagues.
Apr 5 - 6:01 PM

Tyreke Evans (personal) is still not with the team and will not play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

It looking more and more likely that we have seen the last of Evans in 2017-18.
Apr 3 - 6:34 PM

Tyreke Evans (personal) is still not with the Grizzlies for Sunday against the Blazers.

There's a good chance he's not going to be back this season.
Mar 31 - 7:59 PM

Tyreke Evans (personal reasons) is not with team for Friday.

He's dealing with a personal matter, so hopefully everything is OK with Evans. The Grizzlies won't be asking him to hurry back, so he could be out for a little while, perhaps the season.
Mar 29 - 7:50 PM

Tyreke Evans (personal) has still not rejoined his team and is unlikely to play Wednesday against the Trail Blazers.

Evans is dealing with an illness in his family, and with the Grizzlies playing for Ping-Pong balls, they'll let him take his time getting back to the team. Andrew Harrison (wrist) is questionable for Wednesday's game, and if he's out, the Grizzlies will roll out a ridiculous G-League-esque lineup featuring Marc Gasol at center, who will be extremely busy on offense. Evans can be cut just about everywhere at this point.
Mar 27 - 5:47 PM

Tyreke Evans (personal reasons) is not with the Grizzlies for Monday's road game vs. the Wolves.

Evans is dealing with a family illness and this means he's out on Monday. Considering the Grizzlies' lack of motivation to win games, and Evans' impending free agency, it's uncertain when (or if) he'll return this season. Andrew Harrison and Wayne Selden stand to gain the most in his absence.
Mar 25 - 6:12 PM

Tyreke Evans will not be with the Grizzlies on Saturday and he will not play on Saturday against the Lakers.

It's an excused absence for Evans as he deals with a family illness. Expect several games off for Evans the rest of the way and hopefully his family is OK.
Mar 24 - 3:24 PM

Tyreke Evans scored 16 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, six turnovers and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes during a 140-79 loss to the Hornets on Thursday.

Hey, at least he got to rest for most of this game in the worst loss in franchise history. Evans did look disinterested when he didn't have the ball in his hands, and some of those six turnovers were inexcusable. According to the Memphis broadcast, coach J.B. Bickerstaff got on his team after a timeout due to a lack of effort, and Evans was subbed out at that point. Maybe it was about Evans, maybe it wasn't. Evans is going to be at risk of rest basically any night, so it's really tough to keep him on your roster, especially with just 19 minutes tonight because of garbage time.
Mar 22 - 9:25 PM

Tyreke Evans and Deyonta Davis are in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Hornets.

Well, it sounds like he's a go, so hopefully we don't get a surprise here. Evans will carry risk every night going forward.
Mar 22 - 6:58 PM

Tyreke Evans is expected to be available for Thursday against the Hornets.

To be clear, we still wouldn't be surprised to see the Grizzlies pull Evans from this game, especially with Dwight Howard not playing. He really can't be trusted in fantasy unless he's officially in the starting lineup, and he's still not someone to entirely trust in that scenario. If Evans is back, Andrew Harrison and Wayne Selden take hits.
Mar 22 - 4:25 PM

Tyreke Evans (rest) will play on Thursday against the Hornets.

To be clear, he's out for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, but he'll be back in action on the second leg of this back-to-back. Luckily, the Grizzlies don't have any back-to-back sets next week, so technically, Evans should be good for four games.
Mar 21 - 5:58 PM

Tyreke Evans (rest) will not play Wednesday against the 76ers.

Well, this is a surprise again. At practice yesterday, the Philly-area native said he was looking forward to playing in a hometown game and seeing his family, but now the Grizzlies choose to just hold him out. They're on a back-to-back set and there's a very good chance he doesn't play tomorrow against the Hornets either. It'll be Andrew Harrison starting with more Wayne Selden and Briante Weber.
