Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

Evans went scoreless in 14 minutes his last time out, and even if his ankle has fully recovered he's a dubious fantasy option at this stage of the season.
Mar 22 - 8:13 PM

Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) will all sit out vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

Malachi Richardson (hamstring) is also out tonight, so once again it will be all hands on deck for the Kings. Darren Collison, Ty Lawson and Buddy Hield should do the heavy lifting, with some help from Langston Galloway and Garrett Temple.

Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) have all been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Thunder.

Evans has been battling a nagging ankle injury. He played just 14 scoreless minutes on Wednesday. There will obviously be plenty of minutes available for the Kings guards that are active on Saturday. Darren Collison sat out Wednesday's game to rest but will be back on Saturday. Buddy Hield should see plenty of playing time. Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple and Langston Galloway will also likely log additional minutes.
Mar 18 - 12:33 PM

Tyreke Evans (ankle) did not score in 14 minutes with two rebounds, three assists and one steal against the Suns on Wednesday.

He didn't look right and couldn't really separate from his defender. Evans is going to be resting more as the season goes on, so he's really not a great property to own in most leagues.
Mar 16 - 2:25 AM

Tyreke Evans (ankle) is probable against the Suns on Wednesday.

It looks like the Kings are going to play all the guys they rested on Monday and rest Darren Collison and Anthony Tolliver. Evans is almost certainly going to be rested again, so he's not really worth owning.
Mar 15 - 8:33 PM

Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle), Ty Lawson (rest), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Arron Afflalo (rest) will not play on Monday vs. the Magic.

Unlike Lawson, Koufos and Afflalo, Evans is not healthy and this is the same ankle that he sprained earlier this season. With the Kings going nowhere, Evans is likely going to be rested a lot down the stretch. He should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns. Darren Collison looks like a solid play and he should be a usage rate monster, while Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore should get a ton of burn on the wings.
Mar 13 - 9:11 PM

Tyreke Evans scored 16 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

The Kings will continue to manage Evans' minutes, which is probably a good thing for the oft-injured Evans. Looking at the schedule, the Kings do have a road back-to-back next weekend, so chances are Evans only gets three games this week. They also have three additional ones after that. You can probably do better.
Mar 12 - 3:36 AM

Tyreke Evans (rest) will not play Friday vs. the Wizards.

This was a planned day of rest for Evans, who played well on Wednesday, pouring in 26 points and dishing out four assists in 29 minutes. The Kings do not want him playing in both sets of a back-to-back. He should be good to go Saturday vs. the Nuggets. Buddy Hield, Ben McLemore and Arron Afflalo will divvy up Evans' minutes on Friday night. Ty Lawson and Darren Collison will see higher usage rates with Evans in street clothes.
Mar 10 - 8:17 PM

Tyreke Evans started Wednesday's game and wound up with a game-high 26 points on 9-of-13 FGs and 5-of-7 FTs, hitting three 3-pointers with four assists, two rebounds and two steals.

Evans did his damage in a team-high 29 minutes but it wasn't enough to avoid a horrible road loss -- the Kings led by 28 points at one juncture, but wound up losing 114-104. Sacramento is now the only team this season to have blown a lead of at least 20 points on multiple occasions. Evans' strong play as a starter bodes well, and he's worth considering in all formats despite Dave Joerger's chaotic rotations.
Mar 9 - 1:00 AM

Tyreke Evans finished with 12 points, six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 21 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss against the Nuggets.

Evans is being held out of back-to-back sets and that's why he was rested on Sunday. Since coming over from the Pelicans in a deadline deal he has averaged 13.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists. The Nuggets face another back-to-back situation Friday and Saturday, so be prepared to reserve him in leagues allowing daily moves. We'll let you know when he is scheduled to sit.
Mar 7 - 12:47 AM

Tyreke Evans will play on Monday vs. the Nuggets according to head coach Dave Joerger.

Joerger confirmed that Evans sat out on Sunday vs. the Jazz because he's not allowed to play in back-to-back sets. Looking ahead, the next back-to-back set for the Kings is on Friday vs. the Wizards and Saturday vs. the Nuggets. The missed games are a buzzkill, but Evans is usually worth deploying every time he's active. He's averaging 13.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.5 steals and 1.8 triples on 45.0 percent shooting with his new team.
Mar 6 - 9:57 AM

Tyreke Evans (rest) will not play Sunday vs. Utah.

With Evans watching Sunday's game from the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for guys like Buddy Hield, Ben McLemore and Arron Afflalo, and we'll likely see Darren Collison and Ty Lawson tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. It's just a rest day for Evans on the front end of a back-to-back set, but he'll be back in action on Monday night in Denver.

Tyreke Evans was back to the bench for Monday's game against the Timberwolves but he still managed 13 points, five rebounds, two assists, a blocked shot and a steal in 25 minutes.

The Kings starting five is an ever-changing thing, so Evans is likely to be in and out of the lineup. He was still very productive, including 3-of-3 from behind the arc. The veteran remains a solid fantasy option whether or not he is starting, as he'll log plenty of minutes in Sacramento. He is averaging 13.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in his first three games back with the team.
Feb 28 - 1:21 AM

Ty Lawson will start on Monday vs. the Wolves, sending Tyreke Evans back to the bench.

The Kings shuffle their lineups quite often, so don't read too much into this. Lawson is more of a deep-league guy right now with averages of 6.0 points and 4.0 assists in his last two games, while Evans' value should be safe regardless of where he starts the game -- the Kings are thin on the wings right now and Arron Afflalo (hamstring) and Garrett Temple (hamstring) are both out Monday.
