Evans (ribs), who is out for Saturday's contest against Miami, will undergo an MRI on Sunday, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports.
Evans exited Friday's loss to the Cavaliers after 31 minutes due to a rib injury, which is apparently giving him enough discomfort to warrant an MRI. For Saturday's game and possibly beyond depending on the extent of his injury, Andrew Harrison and Ben McLemore are candidates to see expanded roles.
Evans (ribs) will not play Saturday against the Heat.
Evans suffered a right rib injury in the second half of Friday's loss to the Cavaliers, forcing him out of the contest after 31 minutes of action. The severity of the injury is still unclear, but the Grizzlies are in no position to expect Evans to play through the injury, and he'll be joined in street clothes by Chandler Parsons and Wayne Selden. Expect Andrew Harrison and Ben McLemore to pick up increased minutes Saturday.
Evans will not return to Friday's game versus the Cavaliers due to a rib injury.
The severity of the injury is not known at this time. The Grizzlies were pretty much out of the game when the team ultimately ruled Evans out, so they may just be exercising caution. His night will end with 15 points, 10 assists, and three triples across 31 minutes. His status for Saturday's matchup versus the Heat is seemingly up-in-the-air at this time.
Evans supplied 23 points (8-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 121-114 loss to the Thunder.
After sitting for five straight games in advance of the trade deadline, Evans fared much better in his second bout back in the lineup, as he managed 12 points (on three-of-11 shooting), five boards, and three assists to four turnovers in 26 minutes during Sunday's blowout loss to the Thunder. With seven showings with four-plus threes this season, Evans is one such outing away from doubling the number of those performances he had during his first eight seasons combined (four). Through 48 games with the Grizzlies, Evans has also made 25.0 percent (103) of his total career threes (412). He remains a nightly triple-double threat and an excellent option across all fantasy leagues going forward.
Evans accounted for 12 points (3-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and three assists across 26 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 loss to the Thunder.
Evans was playing in his first game since Jan. 29, as the Grizzlies had held him out in the subsequent five contests while they explored potential trade options. The nine-year vet's shot was cleary off after his multi-game absence, although he was able to salvage his overall line to an extent with a near-perfect showing from the free-throw line. Now that he's likely shaken off some of the rust, Evans will look to get his production back up to normal levels in a rematch against the Thunder next Wednesday.
