Reggie Evans grabbed 13 boards on Saturday during a 91-59 win over Maccabi Haifa to go with two points, one assist and one steal.
When an opponent misses 57 shots, there are going to be some boards. Evans is going to get his piece of the pie, but there just won't be much fantasy value here for the one-category big man. Fantasy owners in any league should be able to do better. Jason Thompson was awful in his 15 minutes, failing to score. Oct 19 - 1:52 AM

Kings coach Mike Malone said that Reggie Evans and Jason Thompson have been the "MVPs" of training camp.

"I think it’s important for everybody to know Jason and Reggie have been unbelievable to this point and my hope his they continue to do so," Malone said. Both guys are in the mix to start at PF this season, though Evans' total lack of offense makes him an unlikely candidate. In fantasy leauges he remains what he's always been, a pure rebound specialist.
Oct 1 - 1:57 PM

Reggie Evans (back) is expected to play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He missed Tuesday's game due to a bad back and should be ready to go tonight. Evans is only good for rebounds and is not a fantasy option in most cases.
Apr 9 - 8:36 PM

Reggie Evans played 29 minutes and grabbed 18 rebounds with six points, one assist and two steals vs. the Mavericks on Saturday.

He's been one of the best rebounders in the NBA over the past decade, but that's all he's good for. Evans tends to stay on his man to box out and that means he's less likely to get blocks from weak side help. He can be ignored unless you're looking to make a late charge in rebounds.
Mar 30 - 12:26 AM

Reggie Evans started at power forward again on Tuesday and had seven points, 10 rebounds and two steals in the overtime win.

He's averaging 6.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.0 steals over his last three games, but should only be looked at in deeper fantasy leagues, by owners desperate for rebounds. Jason Thompson came off the bench for 10 points, five rebounds and a block in 23 minutes.
Mar 19 - 2:00 AM

Reggie Evans will make another start at PF vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

Evans and Derrick Williams will trade off starts on a game-by-game basis, according to coach Mike Malone, and Evans got the nod tonight due to the Bulls' bulk. He had six points, eight rebounds and three steals in 22 minutes while starting on Tuesday, but should only be deployed by owners desperate for rebounds.
Mar 15 - 6:56 PM

Reggie Evans moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday and had six points, eight rebounds and three steals in 22 minutes.

Jason Thompson moved to the bench and had three points and seven rebounds in just 14 minutes. The power forward spot for the Kings has been a black hole for most of the season, and we don't see things changing if Evans sticks in the starting unit.
Mar 11 - 10:27 PM

Reggie Evans started at power forward for the Kings on Tuesday, sending Jason Thompson to the bench.

Evans is off to a nice start and we'll let you know how each player fared after the conclusion of tonight's game.
Mar 11 - 8:06 PM

Reggie Evans double-doubled for the Kings on Monday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting with 13 rebounds and one block in 30 minutes off the bench.

Evans has won over the fans and the coaching staff obviously loves what he does on the glass and in the hustle department. He's still a terrible defender in most facets and has no real path to fantasy value in a 3-4 way timeshare for the remaining PF/C minutes behind DeMarcus Cousins.
Mar 4 - 1:13 AM

Coach Mike Malone said he was concerned about his team's defense and lack of effort following Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.

The Kings were thumped in the first quarter 42-17 and coach Malone kept Jason Thompson on the bench the final 43 minutes of the game. Reggie Evans got the start in the third quarter and there has never been a question of effort in his game due to his rebounding rate being at an elite level for much of the past decade. On the other hand, his fantasy value has never taken off, so there's really no need to add him.

Reggie Evans returned to action on Sunday with five boards and no points for the Kings vs. Denver.

He played in garbage time for the Kings and won't really be called upon while DeMarcus Cousins is dominating like he has been all season. Evans is not worth owning in any league unless it's extremely deep with huge bonuses for boards.
Feb 24 - 1:53 AM

Reggie Evans is available for the Kings against the Celtics on Saturday.

DeMarcus Cousins is active and will start, so there's little reason to think he'll get much action. Evans is only good for one category in fantasy and has never really been able to build up enough momentum to have consistent value in standard leagues.
Feb 22 - 9:07 PM

The Kings acquired Reggie Evans as part of Wednesday's trade which sent Marcus Thornton to the Nets.

The veteran bruiser was out for personal reasons prior to the All-Star break but he should be ready to go for the Kings once everyone involved passes physicals. The Kings are already in the top-10 for rebound differential this season and Evans isn't likely to make a big impact in Sacramento, let alone fantasy leagues.
Feb 19 - 2:05 PM

Reggie Evans will not play on Wednesday or Thursday for personal reasons.

Evans played 20 minutes on Friday but followed that up with a DNP-CD on Sunday, and his absence shouldn't affect fantasy lineups. If anything, a few extra minutes will be available for Andray Blatche and Mason Plumlee.
Feb 12 - 10:18 AM

Reggie Evans started at center on Saturday and had eight points and 11 rebounds in 27 minutes.

Brook Lopez is out for the season and Kevin Garnett took the night off to rest, giving Evans the start. Andray Blatche also returned from a personal absence and Mirza Teletovic and Andrei Kirilenko are also going to get big-man minutes going forward, so we're not expecting to see lines like this out of Evans very often. Just keep an eye on him in case he continues to start.
