Tyreke Evans played 26 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday with 15 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer off the bench.
He played the three for the Kings in this game, but he handled the ball in both halfcourt and in transition. Interestingly, Evans took DeMarcus Cousins' old locker and vice versa in New Orleans. The Kings also going to Evans for 26 minutes right out of the gate is an encouraging sign for his playing time going forward. He is injury prone, but Evans is worth owning in standard leagues.

Tyreke Evans (knee) said that he will remain on a minute-limit with the Kings, but he's not sure if the restriction will continue until the end of the season.

Evans said he'd play "about 27" minutes per game, after being traded to the Kings as part of the DeMarcus Cousins deal. Health has been the biggest impediment to his value throughout his NBA career, and during his first season in New Orleans he carved out late-round value in just 28.1 minutes per game. He's a decent stash in the hopes that he stays healthy and the Kings opt to play him substantial minutes in a contract year.

Tyreke Evans will be traded to the Kings in the DeMarcus Cousins deal.

The former Rookie of the Year is headed back to his old team. Evans is going to be an unrestricted free agent in July, so the Kings are clearly opening up as much cap room as they can for the upcoming offseason. As for the rest of this season, Evans may not have as much of a restriction and the Kings are now completely gutted on offense, so he's headed for a big opportunity. Of course, the injury risk won't go away.
Feb 19 - 11:55 PM

Tyreke Evans scored 15 points in 25 minutes vs. the Suns on Monday.

Evans finished 6-of-11 from the field and dished out four assists with four rebounds, one steal and three turnovers. He was expected to be on a 20-minute limit, so it's a great sign that he played 25. Evans should continue to trend up after the All-Star break, so this feels like the appropriate time to pick him up again.
Feb 14 - 1:41 AM

Tyreke Evans (left ankle) returned from a two-game absence on Sunday with seven points (2-of-6 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 15 minutes during the Pelicans' road loss.

Evans was on a 20-minute limit and should stay there for the team's final games before the All-Star break on Monday (at Phoenix) and Wednesday (at Memphis). He hasn't played more than 28 minutes in a game all season and has been a fantasy liability since returning to action on Dec. 15, so there's no reason to think he'll post top-150 value after the All-Star break.
Feb 12 - 11:39 PM

Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play "about 20 minutes" vs. the Kings on Sunday, according to coach Alvin Gentry.

Evans is returning from a two-game absence and it's a good sign that the typically cautious Pelicans are rolling him out there prior to the All-Star break. His minutes will likely be monitored all the way, however, which limits his appeal as a rest-of-season fantasy option.
Feb 12 - 7:47 PM

Tyreke Evans (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

He's missed two games in a row and remains day-to-day with a left ankle sprain, but the upgrade from questionable to probable is a really good sign. The Pelicans are usually pretty cautious with injuries, but Evans is trending in the right direction. We'll have an update after the morning shootaround. His expected return will likely reduce Tim Frazier's workload, but keep in mind that E'Twaun Moore (personal) isn't expected to play.
Feb 11 - 9:10 PM

Tyreke Evans (ankle) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

This will be his second game out due to his ankle sprain. Considering his history, the Pelicans likely won't be rushing Evans back and could keep him out through the break. Tim Frazier should be the backup point guard and could get decent minutes today, especially with E'Twaun Moore out.
Feb 10 - 6:46 PM

Tyreke Evans (ankle) is questionable to play against the Wolves on Friday.

He missed Wednesday's game and almost had no chance to play. If Evans can't go, Tim Frazier should handle the ball in the second unit while Jrue Holiday's ceiling raises with this news.
Feb 9 - 5:41 PM

Tyreke Evans (ankle) will not play Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

Not surprising in the least, as Evans was doubtful headed into this one and unable to go through shootaround. With Evans unavailable Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis will dominate the offense, and there will be more minutes for guys like Buddy Hield and E'Twaun Moore. The Pelicans play again Friday in Minnesota, and Evans should be considered questionable for that one.

Tyreke Evans (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

Evans suffered the injury during Monday's game and did not return, and given that he's been dealing with this ankle issue for the past week, we expect him to spend some additional time on the sidelines. With Evans on the sidelines, Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis will do the heavy lifting on offense, with guys like Buddy Hield and E'Twaun Moore having the opportunity for some extra minutes.

Tyreke Evans (left ankle sprain) will not return on Monday vs. the Suns.

He's been on the injury report for over a week with this ankle issue, so the Pelicans will be cautious here. Evans should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz. He finished with zero points on 0-of-3 shooting with four boards and one assist in eight minutes. If he needs to miss time, Jrue Holiday will be a usage rate monster and E'Twaun Moore would get a bump off the bench.
Feb 6 - 9:18 PM

Tyreke Evans returned to action on Wednesday and had nine points and one assist on 3-of-7 shooting in 18 minutes.

He sat out on Tuesday night in order to rest, hasn't looked right in a week and hasn't looked great since he scored 29 points on Jan. 12. He could get it going at any time, but for now, he's been more of a lineup buzzkill than a helpful fantasy player.
Feb 2 - 3:39 AM

Tyreke Evans (ankle, rest) will not play Tuesday vs. Toronto or Wednesday vs. Detroit.

Evans has been bothered by this left ankle injury over the past couple games, and it's had an obvious affect on his play, so it makes sense for the Pelicans to withhold him from this back-to-back. Buddy Hield should pick up some extra minutes with Evans on the sidelines, while Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday will dominate the offense. The Pelicans are describing Evans' absence as precautionary, so he should be back in action on Saturday in Washington. Daily Slant: With Evans out, Jrue Holiday now becomes a core play across the industry. He's posted at least 47 FPs in three of his last four games, and while his usage rate/FPPM mark haven't jumped significantly with Evans in the lineup this season, it still secures Holiday's playing time and ballhandling responsibility. Compared to guys like Kemba Walker and Damian Lillard in the same price range, Holiday is more appealing at this point.

Tyreke Evans (ankle) scored 14 points with five rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

He puts up some good numbers when Anthony Davis (quad) is on the sidelines. Evans gets an 8.2 usage rate bump when Davis is out and he's also much more efficient. He's still going to have a minutes limit on him, but his owners should be feeling better about his recent play.
