Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans out 1-2 weeks with ankle sprain

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans tweaked an ankle on Saturday's preseason debut, and now word comes that the athletic wing will miss 1-2 weeks but luckily for New Orleans will be back for the regular season.

It's good he won't miss much time, but the Pelicans did need time to figure out how he fits into the rotations. With Eric Gordon already out nursing more ankle issues, it makes you concerned for how the Pelicans will start the season, especially considering how tricky ankles tend to be in terms of repetitive injuries.

But for the time being, at least the good news is it's nothing serious and Evans can help out once the games start mattering.
