Evans will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. After playing 36 minutes Tuesday's spot start, Evans will come off the bench for Wednesday's season finale. There's a good chance he'll continue to see an increased workload with Steph Curry resting and incumbent start Klay Thompson planning likely seeing between 15-and-20 minutes only.
Evans recorded 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), five rebounds, three steals, two assists, and two blocks in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 112-103 win over the Pelicans. Evans finished with career highs in scoring, rebounding, steals, blocks, and minutes while matching his best assist total. Assuming the Warriors opt to rest most of their key guys in advance of the playoffs, the 21-year-old rookie will likely draw another start and earn ample minutes during Wednesday's regular season finale versus the Grizzlies.
Evans will start Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. With Klay Thompson getting the night off for rest, Evans will make the first start of his career. In the four games that he's seen double-digit run, he's averaged 2.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists.
Evans was recalled by the Warriors on Wedesday. After finishing the G-League season with Santa Cruz, Evans will head back to the NBA for the final four games of the season. In 27 games for Golden State, the 2018 1st-round pick's managed 0.8 points, 0.6 rebounds and 0.6 rebounds in 5.0 minutes. There's a chance that Evans could see some run down the stretch as the coach Steve Kerr will likely look to get his starters as rested as possible for the impending playoffs.
Evans was sent to the G League on Tuesday. In 21 G League games, Evans is averaging 11.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 26.1 minutes per game.
