Evans contributed 18 points (6-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds and three steals across 20 minutes during a 118-98 win over the Magic on Wednesday.
Evans posted impressive numbers in limited action in the blowout. He has come on nicely over the last five games, with averages of 17.0 points on 50.0 percent shooting, 4.4 assists, 3.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.6 three-pointers per game. He is only playing 22.8 minutes per game in that stretch, so once his minutes start creeping up higher in his return from the knee injury that kept him out for the first part of the season, his value will continue to rise.
Evans exploded for 29 points (10-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT), four rebounds, four steals, three assists and a block Thursday in 27 minutes during a 104-95 win over Brooklyn.
Easily Evans' best performance of the season after missing the first 26 games rehabbing his knee. He tore up the Nets with a blend of his signature freight-train drives and a few outside shots to keep the defense honest. Evans also used his physicality well on the defensive end, grinding the Nets hobbled backcourt to a pulp while jumping passing lanes for steals. And he did all this in 27 minutes. His production will tail off when Anthony Davis (hip) returns, but this should absolutely be enough to put him on DFS radars.
The news here is that Evans' minutes restriction appears to have been elevated into the low-20s after he was held under 21 minutes in each of his previous 10 games since making his debut on Dec. 15. It's unclear when Evans might be cleared for a full workload, but the fact that he's now appeared in nine straight games is certainly an encouraging sign.
Evans will play through his back spasms during Thursday's matchup with the Hawks.
Evans is dealing with some discomfort in his back, but after going through pregame warmups, decided he'll attempt to play through the injury. Even at full strength, Evans has been restricted to less than 20 minutes on any given night, so with his recent back issues, as well as his playing time limitations, Evans is a player to avoid for the time being.
Evans is dealing with back spasms and has been listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Hawks, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports.
Evans missed the first month and half of the season while working back from knee surgery and it appears the injury bug has struck again, as he's now dealing with back spasms. He's considered questionable for Thursday, so look for him to test out the injury during pregame warmups before giving us a final word on his availability. Evans' absence should mean more minutes for guys like Solomon Hill, Buddy Hield and E'Twaun Moore on the wing. However, even when he's at full strength, Evans is still on a minutes restriction of around 20 minutes, which limits his overall fantasy potential.
