Considered a game-time call leading up to tipoff, Evans ultimately gained clearance to return from a three-game absence due to a concussion and a fractured nose. Coach Steve Kerr slotted Evans back on the second unit, and the 2018 first-round pick ended up handling what's been a relatively normal minutes load or him this season.
