Evans playing time will remain restricted at around 27 per game for the time being, Sean Cunningham of KXTV Sacramento reports.
Evans indicated he is unsure if his minutes will remain restricted for the rest of the season. The newly acquired shooting guard won Rookie of the Year honors in 2009-10 with the Kings, and is now back with the team in a muddled perimeter situation. He had knee surgery on his right knee last February, and did not make his season debut until this past December. While it is unclear how the Kings plan on handling their new rotation, it appears to be a safe bet that Evans will continue on a similar workload he was seeing in New Orleans. He will presumably either start at the two or three position or serve as the Kings' sixth man as he continues his road back to full health.
Evans has been struggling from the perimeter in New Orleans, so perhaps a change of scenery will do him some good. It is the second tour of duty for Evans in Sacto, as he spent his first four NBA seasons there, including a career-high 20.1 points in his rookie season of 2009-10. With Rudy Gay (Achilles) done for the season and DeMarcus Cousins going to New Orleans, Evans has a good chance of being one of the team's primary scoring options with a huge bump in fantasy appeal in the process.
Evans finished with 15 points (6-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT) while posting four rebounds, four assists and a steal over 25 minutes in Monday's 110-108 win against the Suns.
Evans isn't having much luck from the perimeter lately, misfiring on all but two of his 10 attempts in the month of February. His playing time continues to be rather erratic, as are his stat lines. Perhaps Monday's solid effort will buy him more minutes in Wednesday's tilt in Memphis. However, he is only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues until his role and production become a little more consistent.
Evans (ankle) will play about 20 minutes during Sunday's contest against the Kings, John Reid of NOLA.com reports.
After missing the previous two games with a sprained left ankle, Evans is expected to take the floor and play about 20 minutes in Sunday's tilt. With Evans on limited minutes and E'Twaun Moore (personal) out, it seems likely that Langston Galloway and Tim Frazier will pick up some additional minutes at the guard slots.
Evans (ankle) is probable for Sunday's contest against the Kings.
Evans has missed the previous two outings due to a left ankle sprain, but it seems more likely than not that he'll see the floor Sunday. In 13 games prior to his injury, Evans was averaging 12.1 points, 3.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.2 steals across 20.4 minutes per game. His return would likely mean a reduction in workload for Dante Cunningham.
