    Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Could be sidelined until late in preseason

    Evans (knee) may not be back to full health until late in the preseason, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports. Evans was one of several Pelicans players to succumb to a season-ending injury, but his knee problems have been a more chronic issue than the other ailments that befell his teammates. Back in February, the 26-year-old required his third procedure on his right knee in nine months, with this latest surgery designed to replace cartilage in three areas of the knee. Because of Evans' problematic history of knee injuries, he'll require a lengthier timetable than usual for his recovery, and could be subjected to restricted minutes when he does return, at least in the early stages of the 2016-17 season. Few players carry more risk than Evans heading into the upcoming campaign, likely making it unwise to invest an early-round selection in him.

    Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Out for season

    Evans underwent successful surgery on his right knee Thursday and will miss the remainder of the season, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Evans had a second opinion taken on his knee injury, but the result was the same and he was encouraged to undergo surgery. That surgery occurred on Thursday and was successful, which rules Evans out for the remainder of the 2015-16 season. Evans has one year left on his current contract and will be back with Pelicans next year with a cap hit of just over $10 million. A concrete timetable has yet to be determined, so it remains unclear if he'll be ready to go come training camp.

    Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Status for remainder of season still uncertain

    Coach Alvin Gentry clarified Wednesday morning that it hasn't been determined yet if Evans will require season-ending surgery on his right knee. "He's seeing some specialists and getting some second opinions," Gentry said. "We'll see where that leads. That's basically it right now." A report filed earlier in the day by Yahoo! Sports' Shams Charania first suggested that Evans, who had only previously been ruled out through the All-Star break with right knee tendinitis, would undergo surgery, but it appears the Pelicans are exploring all avenues before making a decision on the combo guard's availability for the remainder of the season. Once the Pelicans have gathered sufficient information from medical experts, an update on Evans' status should be provided, but the fact that a season-ending procedure even remains a possibility for the 26-year-old is quite worrisome. He can likely be dropped in most formats with a quick return -- or any return at all -- seemingly not on the horizon.

    Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery

    Evans is expected to undergo surgery on his right knee in the near future, which would likely end his season, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Evans hasn't played since Jan. 25 after experiencing recurring tendinitis in the knee, and the Pelicans had planned to reevaluate his condition after the All-Star break. It appears he hasn't progressed in his recovery since being shut down, and with the Pelicans seemingly out of the running for the postseason, Evans has little incentive to play through the injury at less than 100 percent health. If Evans indeed goes under the knife again, it would mark his third procedure on the right knee since May, and it's fair to wonder if the 26-year-old will ever be able to stay on the court for a full season over the remainder of his career. The Pelicans were said to be shopping Evans with the hope of finding a suitor for his services, but the prospect of a season-ending surgery will end those discussions.

    Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Out through All-Star break

    Evans (knee) will remain out through the All-Star break, Pelicans radio announcer Sean Kelley reports. This does not come as a big surprise, as he has now missed five straight games, and is about to miss his sixth in a row on Saturday against the Cavaliers. Dante Cunningham will get the start at the three on Saturday, with Alonzo Gee heading to the bench. This means the soonest Evans could return is Feb. 19 against the Sixers.
