Tyreke Evans gets stuck in an elevator before Suns-Pelicans
Pelicans guard almost missed tipoff because he's stuck in an elevator.
Update 2: He made it!

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.

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.
He says he plans to become a bigger offensive threat, and odd numbers suggest he could
He continues to defend the system at every turn, putting any shortcomings on the players
