Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Indicates he'll be back by mid-December

Evans (knee) recently indicated in a Snapchat message that he plans to return to the court between late November or mid-December, Scott Kushner of the New Orleans Advocate reports.

Evans' projected target timetable is roughly in line with what Pelicans GM Dell Demps suggested last week. The combo guard has already resumed participating in on-court activities, but until he's cleared to take full contact, the Pelicans likely won't have a formal date for his season debut. After Evans required three procedures on his right knee in a nine-month span, the Pelicans are expected to use him cautiously once he's back to full health. He'll likely face significant minute restrictions and could be held out during back-to-back sets as a means of avoiding a setback.
