Evans (rest) will not play in Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Sean Cunningham of ABC10 Sacramento reports. Evans will get the night off solely for rest-related purposes. The 27-year-old is averaging 19.3 minutes per game during his seventh season in the league. As a result of his projected absence, both Buddy Hield and Garret Temple could be in line for a increase in playing time.
Evans will start at small forward in Sunday's game against the Clippers, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. The Kings are resting Arron Afflalo for the front end of the back-to-back set, so it will open up a spot on the top unit for Evans, who sat out Sacramento's previous game Friday against the Warriors for rest purposes. Evans will still likely be capped at around 28 minutes on the recommendation of team doctors following his offseason knee surgery, but he's still been one of the team's more productive offensive players since he was acquired at the trade deadline. Over his nine appearances with the Kings, Evans has averaged 14.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.8 three-pointers in 22.4 minutes per game.
Evans will not play in Friday's game against the Warriors for resting purposes, James Ham of CSNBayArea.com reports. After undergoing knee surgery last season, Evans made his season debut on Dec. 15. He has seen his minutes restricted all season, and the Kings are opting to be extra cautious with the former Rookie of the Year, as they are not in the playoff picture. Look for Arron Afflalo to see a slightly heavier workload with Evans out, while Garrett Temple should see some extra run providing depth on the wing.
Evans (ankle) finished with 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while posting three rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes in Wednesday's 116-98 loss against the Bucks. Evans didn't show any ill effects of his ankle injury, as he was very effective from the floor, especially from long range. He missed three of the past four games due to a sore ankle, but it appears safe to get him back into the active fantasy lineup following this impressive showing.
Evans (ankle) will play in Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Jason Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. Evans has missed three of the last four games with a sore ankle, but has now had ample time off to make a full recovery. He'll rejoin the regular rotation Wednesday, and could be in line for a bigger role on the wing depending on the availability of Arron Afflalo (personal). Evans has been in and out of the lineup with injuries, but in the five games he's played so far in March, he's averaged 13.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.0 steal across 21.4 minutes.
