  • Evans recorded 29 points (13-24 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists and one blocked shot across 41 minutes in Saturday's 102-101 overtime loss to the Thunder. Even though Mike Conley (Achilles) will start at point guard when he returns next week, Evans' lights-out play has most likely pushed Andrew Harrison and Ben McLemore to the bench where Evans will continue to crush value as the starting shooting guard. Since Conley's injury Evans has averaged 18.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 5.0 assists, and his ceiling has been substantially higher. Evans should continue to get the start at the point for at least the next week, and DFS players should ride the wave while it lasts.

  • Evans finished with 27 points (10-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 116-107 loss to Toronto. Evans was questionable heading into Friday's game, but ultimately, he was able to take his place in the starting lineup. Evans did only play 27 minutes in the loss, perhaps an indication that his hip was a minor issue. He has been outstanding for the Grizzlies so far this season, looking like the player he was before his slew of injuries. He should return to his normal 30 plus minutes on Saturday night, barring any setbacks to his hip concern.

  • Evans (hip) will play during Friday's game against the Raptors. Evans had been dealing with some right hip soreness in advance of Friday's game, causing him to be listed as questionable. It appears he's shaken it off, however, as he's been cleared to play and will draw the start.

  • Evans is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Raptors due to right hip soreness. Evans has played 33-plus minutes in each of his last three games with no signs of injury, so his late appearance on Friday's injury report comes as a bit of a surprise. Consider Evans a game-time decision against Toronto, but if he is unable to play, Mario Chalmers would likely start at point guard and see extended minutes with Andrew Harrison likely serving as his backup.

  • Evans finished with 16 points (6-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, five rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 95-92 victory over Minnesota. Evans chipped in across the board, helping the Grizzlies to their first win in 12 games. He continues to put up numbers, having 21 assists over the last two games. He has been one of the waiver wire pickups of the season so far, and with Mike Conley (Achilles) still a couple of weeks away from a return, Evans will continue to flirt with 30 plus minutes per night.
