Evans made a brief appearance on Tuesday playing four minutes in a loss to the Grizzlies. He finished with three points, connecting on his lone shot attempt. Evans has appeared in 12 games this season and is averaging 9.0 minutes a game. A majority of those minutes came early in the year as he has totaled just six minutes in Dallas' last five outings.
Evans logged a minute in Dallas' 92-86 win Monday in Philadelphia. Evans' minutes have been very inconsistent so far this season, playing 15 minutes one game and then not playing at all the next. Through the first 11 games, he's averaging 11.3 minutes per game overall, and has scored 2.7 points per contest. Evans will continue to play behind Dirk Nowitzki and Charlie Villanueva.
Evans played 13 minutes off the bench Saturday in a win over the Pelicans. He finished with three points (1-1 FG, 1-2 FT) and added three rebounds and a blocked shot. After averaging 25 minutes in Dallas' first two games of the season, Evans has played a total of 24 minutes in the four subsequent outings. He remains a limited option on a veteran-laden team.
Evans will start at small forward in Thursday's game against the Clippers. With both Chandler Parsons (knee) and Wesley Matthews (Achilles) out, Evans will slide into the starting lineup at small forward. Evans saw 26 minutes in the season opener and scored seven points, but with so many injuries to the Mavericks, he'll move into the starting lineup and could very well see a bump in both minutes and overall production.
Evans scored seven points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt) Wednesday in a win over the Suns. He recorded six rebounds, one block, and one steal in 26 minutes of action. Evans looked solid in his Dallas debut and played a team-high 26 minutes off the bench. Coach Rick Carlisle has already said he will utilize Evans at a variety of positions, giving him plenty of opportunities to contribute.
