Tyreke Evans (knee) is doubtful for Friday's tilt versus the Clippers, John Reid of NOLA.com reports.
Evans has yet to make his season debut, and it now seems unlikely to happen Friday. He is likely to be on a minute restriction upon his return, but he should still be owned in all standard leagues at this point. His next opportunity to debut will be Sunday in Utah.
Tyreke Evans (knee) is not expected to play Wednesday in Phoenix, John Reid of the Times Picayune reports.
Evans was hoping to make his first appearance of the season Wednesday but he'll have to wait until Friday against the Clippers. Even though he's likely in store for limited minutes upon his return, he should be acquired off the waiver wire in most leagues given his production over the course of his career.
Evans was a full participant at practices Monday and Tuesday, but fantasy owners will have to wait until closer to tip off to find out if he'll make his season debut Wednesday night. In any case, Evans appears to be close to full health after undergoing a right knee procedure in October, so his return should come sooner rather than later, barring any setbacks. Expect him to face a minute restriction in the early going, however.
Evans put in a full practice for the second straight day, which would seem to bode well for his chances to make his season debut Wednesday. The Memphis product has been held out after undergoing a right knee procedure in mid-October, but he's said to be moving well of late while avoiding any pain or swelling in the knee. A decision on his status likely won't come until after shootaround Wednesday, so continue to consider Evans questionable until the team suggests otherwise.
Evans has yet to play this season after undergoing an arthroscopic knee procedure on Oct. 20, but he's been progressing quickly in his recovery, and didn't appear to be limited during Monday's session. The combo guard looked to be moving and elevating well, and wasn't experiencing any pain or swelling in the right knee, according to Reid. The 3-11
