Doubtful knee surgery
48m ago
Evans is doubtful Sunday at OKC. Coach Gentry said Evans is not expected to play.
Injured knee surgery
12/1/2016 1:21 PM
Evans remains out after experiencing tightness in his left calf. The good news is his previous surgeries were on his right knee.

Evans remains out without a definitive timeline, but he did begin working on the court Tuesday. A more accurate timetable for his return will be updated based on how he responds to his workouts, but the Pelicans are currently planning on having Evans back in games by the later part of next week, "by Thanksgiving" (November 24th) the report said. The Pelicans play on Wednesday the 23rd vs. MIN and on Friday the 25th at POR.
100% (1) agree 
in saying that though, the recent set back and comments may make me drop it a little. I'm looking into it no
He will be on 16-20 minute limit initially, but the 27 is for season long minutes. We think he'll be ramped up in the new year and likely get 30+ in January. Combine that with the initial 16-20 and that should put him around 27
BBM currenty has him at 27 minutes per game. Everything I have read says 16-20.
"They will certainly be limiting his playing time for a long time..." Is that true? Whats your opinion BM?

And I take it back, new update: https://twitter.com/ScottDKushner/status/804396840770736129
Rumor is he might be back this friday: http://www.thebirdwrites.com/2016/11/30/13791064/tyreke-evans-injury-return-friday-new-orleans-pelicans-los-angeles-clippers

He started zero games as a SF/F last year and his percentage of minutes logged there was less than in years past. There really is no legit reason for him to have SF unless he earns it when he comes back.
patricklol -- It's hard to know if/when Evans might get extra position eligibility. If he's healthy and ends up starting at SF for a stack of games, that'd be the clearest route to it happening. Otherwise, we'll be at the whim of whichever company provides positions to Yahoo.

Any chance he gets sf eligibility in yahoo leagues? He was one last year so I'm not sure why he doesn't get it this year.
I'm in a similar dilemma in my 14 teams h2h no ir league... considering trading reke for Taj Gibson
100% (1) agree 
Been stashing him on my bench for the last two weeks (no IR spot in a 12 team H2H daily). I've been getting by with him on my bench but I also have Parsons as well..Danny Green is a FA in my league. Wondering if he's worth dropping Reke for. I feel attached to Reke because I've held on to him already for a couple of weeks but is Green the better ROS fantasy player here?

iamAndres -- Evans has been a top-50 player in 8-cat in the past, and it's possible he could climb back into a top-75 or top-100 role this season if he can get healthy. But Evans would have to be healthy, and then he's going to have to play better than several of the Pelicans' guards (not impossible but still a hurdle). If you want to stash him in your IL/IR, that's fine, but I'd temper expectations.
What is his potential upside? I do have an IR spot available with J.Lin coming back and am doing good in standings (2nd).
Thrillard45 -- The 18-20 minutes limitation should last as long as Evans has issues, but if he proves he's healthy, there's a good chance he could carve out a a big enough role to be of use in standard leagues, if for no other reason than the Pelicans trying to create a trade piece. There's a lot of risk. I'd only stash Evans if you have an IR spot or are in a good spot in the standings and think it's worth taking the risk given what's on the wire.
Yeah I expect them to ease into his minutes, but that report made me worry that he'd just stay at a super low minutes cap for a long time lol. Thinking about picking him up but not sure anymore
100% (1) agree 
No way to know how long until we hear more. But, did you expect him to come back close to a full allotment right away? So many knee surgeries I have little confidence in him being able to stay on the court very long until he's hurt again.
"Pelicans could get Tyreke Evans back soon, possibly two weeks. He's pain free, down to 7 percent body fat. Expected minute restriction: 16-20" ...is that 16-20 minutes restriction supposed to be long-term? :\

Thinking about picking up Evens and dropping Taj Gibson. Thoughts?
Kinda feel like I have to add him, but also sitting on JLin, and had Gaz who I'd be dropping for him. At this point those were my only two SGs, but it's an ast/to league so Reke should be really valuable with SG eligibility. With Lin coming back hopefully soon I should just run with no SG for a while right? My other potential drops would be Pau or TJ Warren. 10 team, 8+ ast/to, DD, TD
Evans is a decent stash guy right now because he could return sometime in the next 10 days according to the report we got today, but there's still a lot of injury risk with Evans. They're going to ease him into his role, and if he can stay healthy, then maybe Evans plays enough to be of use in most leagues. There are just a lot of question marks with Evans, so don't drop someone who is likely to have good value all season.

Drop nurkic or fournier for tyreke? 10 team with IR spot.
Same question. No IR spot.

He worth stashing in a 14 team? Starting to practice.
Evans is targeting the end of November-to-the-middle-of-December for his return. As long as there aren't any really good players on the wire that you should hold instead, then yes, it's fine stashing Evans in roto because the bench spots aren't used too often.
Is he worth a stash in a 200-deep 9-cat roto league? Even if he only plays 40 games, a player of his caliber seems valuable.
20% (5) agree 
He says that he plans to return soon. How do you see his role when he's back and how will it impact the other Pelicans- Frazier, Stephenson, Hield, Holiday (when he returns)? Is Tyreke worth a stash?
