Update 2: He made it!
Tyreke Evans arrived at the arena 15 minutes ago and he will start— Bryan Gibberman (@GibbermanAZ) March 1, 2014
Update: Yup, he's stuck.
When someone asks me why I love the NBA, I tell them it's because of stuff like this, that just doesn't seem to happen in other sports. With Jrue Holiday out for the season with surgery on a stress fracture, Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans was set to get the start Friday night vs. Phoenix.
Just one problem.
Tyreke Evans is supposed to start tonight, but he's stuck in an elevator at team hotel— Bryan Gibberman (@GibbermanAZ) March 1, 2014
I can see the box score now:
DNP-Suspended. Literally suspended by cables.
DNP-Lever & Pulley system
DNP- Left hanging

We'll see if Evans makes it for tip.
