Jeremy Evans (ankle) is now out for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

This news shouldn't matter in your fantasy league, as he has not been in the rotation this season. You can safely leave him on the waiver wire in almost all leagues.

Jeremy Evans is questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers after he sprained his ankle during Friday's practice.

He is not in the rotation anyways, so this news shouldn't matter in the vast majority of leagues. Evans will need a few injuries to strike the Jazz before being relevant, so you can safely leave him on the waiver wire.

Jeremy Evans (ankle) is questionable to face the Clippers on Saturday.

He has a left ankle sprain and ti doesn't sound too serious. Evans isn't really in the rotation anyway, so he can be ignored in most leagues.

Jeremy Evans came off Utah's bench for four points, eight rebounds and two blocks in Sunday's road loss to the Pacers.

He was questionable to play due to a sprained ankle, but wound up giving another efficient performance in 20 minutes off the bench. Lines like this are the norm for Evans, so if you don't find it useful look elsewhere for waiver wire production.

Jeremy Evans (sprained ankle) will play vs. the Pacers on Sunday.

He's less than 100 percent healthy and faces the league's premier defense, so there's no incentive to gamble on him in fantasy leagues. He's averaging 5.2 points and 5.0 rebounds in Utah's last five games.

Jeremy Evans (sprained ankle) participated in Sunday's shootaround but still remains a game-time decision.

Evans is only an option in deep leagues, and on a day when he's less than 100 percent, he doesn't even meet that criterion. Look for Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Richard Jefferson, Marvin Williams, and Brandon Rush to split up the minutes if Evans is unable to go.

Jeremy Evans sprained his left ankle during Saturday's practice, leaving him as a game-time decision for Sunday.

Evans logged just 14 minutes in Utah's last game and he doesn't have enough fantasy upside to be worth gambling on at less than 100 percent. If he does sit out, his minutes will be absorbed by Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Richard Jefferson, Marvin Williams and Brandon Rush.

Jeremy Evans had two steals and a career-high four blocks to go with four points and six rebounds in 18 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Evans has always been a guy whose fantasy value can rise pretty quickly but the minutes are never really there and the return of Derrick Favors solidified that problem tonight. He's still just a deep league guy until that changes, despite the solid result.

Jeremy Evans grabbed a career-high 13 boards against the Nets on Wednesday with three points and one steal in 20 minutes.

He was effective on the defensive glass, but was a no-show on the other end with just three shots from the field. Evans could get some more playing time while Derrick Favors is out with a hip issue, but Favors possibly back for the weekend doesn't make him a very intriguing pickup.
Thu, Feb 20, 2014 01:46:00 AM

Jeremy Evans hit 7-of-10 shots for 14 points, five rebounds, three steals and two blocks in Tuesday's win.

Evans has made a little noise over his last three games, but is still averaging just 8.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.7 steals over that stretch. There are probably more reliable options on your wire.
Wed, Feb 12, 2014 01:44:00 AM

Jeremy Evans (tailbone) returned to action on Friday, scoring five points on 2-of-3 shooting with four rebounds and a steal in 20 minutes.

Evans had a small stretch of productivity earlier in the year but he has lost all of that momentum over the past month or so. If he gets it back we'll let you know.
Sat, Feb 8, 2014 01:10:00 AM

Jeremy Evans (tailbone) will play in Friday's game against the Mavs.

The Jazz will have their entire roster healthy and available Friday, squeezing the rotation tight. The high-flying Evans figures to play his typical bench role, seeing his usual 17-20 minutes.
Fri, Feb 7, 2014 01:17:00 PM

Jeremy Evans (tailbone, elbow) is doubtful to play vs. the Raptors on Monday.

Evans took a hard spill on Friday and bruised both his tailbone and elbow, but fortunately X-rays were negative. He remains day-to-day.
