Evans did not play in Northern Arizona's 116-93 loss to the Oklahoma City Blue on Sunday due to a left hip injury.
Evans missed the second game in Northern Arizona's double-header against Oklahoma City after an uninspiring performance in the first matchup. The timing of the injury is unfortunate, considering Evans has seen playing time with the turbulent Phoenix Suns this year, but this injury might help the rookie by forcing him to stay in the G League and continue developing.
Evans totaled two points (1-3 FG), two rebounds, and one assist in 11 minutes during Wednesday's 116-88 loss to the Jazz.
Evans made just his sixth appearance of the season, earning double-digit minutes for the first time since Dec. 15. Even in a blowout loss in which Devin Booker (hamstring), T.J. Warren (ankle), De'Anthony Melton (ankle), and Tyler Johnson (not injury related) were all out, Evans barely cracked the rotation and remains too far down the depth chart to trust for fantasy purposes.
Though the Lakers won comfortably, it apparently wasn't a big enough of a blowout for Phoenix coach Igor Kokoskov to empty his bench, as the Suns only used 10 players. Evans hasn't seen any action for the NBA team since Dec. 17, but he may stick with the parent club for the next couple of weeks as an insurance option in the backcourt while De'Anthony Melton (ankle) is sidelined.
Evans recorded four points (2-7 FG), three rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 111-86 loss to the Spurs.
Evans saw the fifth-most minutes on the team in his season debut. With Devin Booker (hamstring) out, Evans stepped into the primary backup point guard role behind De'Anthony Melton. It's unclear when Booker will be able to return to the lineup, but until then Evans could be called upon to play decent minutes.
Evans is "expected to get some run" Tuesday against the Spurs, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
With Phoenix sinking deep in the Western Conference standings and Devin Booker (hamstring) being out, it seems coach Igor Kokoskov will be trying to inject life into the team. If Evans appears in Tuesday's game, it will be the first minutes of his NBA career.
