Evans was able to participate in pre-game warmups. He's dealing with a bone bruise in his knee sustained in Saturday's Game 1 loss to Golden State. Evans came into the day questionable and was a game-time decision.
Holiday is dealing with lingering pain from a stress reaction in his leg. He was hopeful of playing but was also deemed questionable and a game-time decision. In games Holiday has played in since returning from the injury, he's seen his minutes limited.
Evans will be evaulated Monday to determine if he will be able to run on the leg. He did not practice Sunday.
"(I will) see how it feels and how the pain level is. I couldn't run full-speed. If you can't run full-speed, you don't want to be out there against this team," the Pelicans second-leading scorer said.
Holiday's minutes have been limited since returning from the injury to limit soreness, and he may be held out of the game as a precaution.
Evans was forced to leave Saturday's 106-99 loss to Golden State with a knee bruise.
Though Evans considers himself a game-time decision, Pelicans coach Monty Williams said Evans is "day to day."
Evans was injured with 5:16 remaining in the first half in Game 1.
Evans, who underwent minor right knee surgery last May, exited with 5:16 remaining in the first half and was taken back to the locker room and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. He scored one point and grabbed one rebound before leaving the game. His return remains uncertain.
Evans said after the game he "felt a little pop" in his knee after a tangle for a loose ball, according to ESPN.com. He is scheduled for an MRI later Saturday.
Evans averaged 16.6 points, 6.6 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game in the regular season. He shot 44.7 percent from the field and 30.4 percent from downtown in 79 games.
Evans also dished out nine assists and pulled down seven rebounds in the contest. It was his fourth game in the last five scoring in double figures. Evans is averaging 18.0 points and 8.2 assists in his last five games.
