Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans made his debut with New Orleans on Saturday night. It was short lived. The former Kings wing left the game with an ankle injury. X-rays were negative, per the team, but he'll likely have an MRI to determine any structural damage.
Evans had seven points on 3-of-5 shooting before the injury, along with two rebounds. Tom Ziller of SacTown Royalty noted about Evans:
The thing about Tyreke Evans is that he comes up gingerly *a lot*. Usually fine. Tough dude.— Tom Ziller (@teamziller) October 6, 2013
Still, it has to concern the Pelicans when their $44 million free agent acquisition goes down in the first preseason game.
