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
Evans had an original recovery timetable of six-to-eight weeks, so this is a bit sooner than expected. Considering it came from Evans himself, it should be taken with a grain of salt, as it more or less could be wishful thinking. Either way, if he's able to return at that point in time, it would be great news for fantasy owners, as Evans has yet to play this year and is likely itching to get back in the action. Evans finished last season with averages of 16.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game, but may need some time to get his legs back under him before returning to that form.
Tyreke Evans (knee) hopes to be back in the lineup in late November or early December, Sam Amick of USA Today reports.
After undergoing arthroscopic surgery Oct. 20, Evans was ruled out for six-to-eight weeks, but it sounds like he might be able to beat the short end of his timetable by a small margin if he continues to make steady progress. Evans began running last week on an ultra-G treadmill, according to NBA.com, but until he takes part in basketball-related activities, the New Orleans Pelicans probably won't have a proper gauge for when he might be back.
