Beverley (knee) underwent successful surgery on Tuesday and is expected to be out three weeks, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.
Beverley will begin the season on the bench as he nurses his knee after undergoing arthroscopic surgery. With Pablo Prigioni's surprise release earlier in the week, Tyler Ennis will be the main backup behind James Harden, who is taking over point guard responsibilities this season under new head coach Mike D'Antoni. Look for Beverley's injury to be reassessed in a couple weeks.
Leier will provide Philadelphia with some much-needed depth up front ahead of Tuesday's game against Buffalo, as the team only had 12 healthy forwards on the active roster prior to the youngster's promotion. The 5-foot-11 winger will probably be a healthy scratch against the Sabres, and will likely be returned to the minors prior to Thursday's game against the Coyotes.
Evans (knee) remains without a firm return timetable, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.
Per GM Dell Demps, Evans has begun on-court activities, but it will likely be a couple of weeks before the Pelicans put forth a more definitive timetable. "He's been working hard. His body looks great," Demps said. "We'll have a better indication in maybe two weeks. We hope to have him back hopefully before January. Could it be late November? Maybe. Maybe early December, mid-December. It'll all depend on how his rehab goes over the next couple weeks." That's not exactly a definitive statement from Demps, but at this point a return sometime in December appears to be the most realistic scenario. Look for Buddy Hield and E'Twaun Moore to pick up increased minutes so long as Evans remains out.
Kreider (neck) is not expected to play in Wednesday's clash with the Bruins according to head coach Alain Vigneault, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports. Vigneault added that Kreider "might be more than day-to-day."
Aside from Vignealt's ominously phrased description, there hasn't been any indication as to when Kreider might return to action. Kreider was off to an excellent start to the season, so his return would be very welcome for the Rangers and fantasy owners alike. Stay tuned for more updates on his health as they come in.
Miller (shoulder) is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Miller was in and out of Sunday's loss to the Broncos, rotating with Alfred Blue instead of handling his usual three-down role. While it won't be surprising if Miller misses some practice time during the week, his ability to initially play through the injury is a good sign for his Sunday availability against the Lions. The larger question, perhaps, is whether Miller will be prepared to handle the massive workload he's grown accustomed to this season. Wednesday's practice report should provide the first meaningful update.
