Insight: A knee injury limited him to just 21 minutes Friday night and he didn't play on Saturday. With Brian Roberts also out, look for Austin Rivers and Anthony Morrow to play most of the minutes in New Orleans' backcourt with Darius Miller and Al-Farouq Aminu splitting time at small forward.

Insight: Evans moved back into the starting lineup after coming off the bench Friday in his return from a one-game absence. Since he assumed Al-Farouq Aminu's starting job on Feb. 28, Evans has averaged 38 minutes, 21.8 points, 6.3 assists, 6.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals in eight games. He only averaged 24.8 minutes, 12 points, 4.4 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals his first 49 games, of which he started none.

Description: Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans (illness) will return Friday after missing Wednesday's game, according to Jim Eichenhofer of pelicans.com.
Insight: Evans has averaged 22 ppg, 6.3 apg, 6.2 rpg, 1.0 spg in six games since he joined the starting lineup in place of Al-Farouq Aminu. Make sure he's in your lineup Friday against the Trail Blazers.

Description: Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans did not play Wednesday due to an illness and is questionable for Friday's game against Portland
Insight: Evans has averaged 22 ppg, 6.3 apg, 6.2 rpg, 1.0 spg in six games since he joined the starting lineup in place of Al-Farouq Aminu. If he's dressed, fantasy owners must start him, but it appears it will be a game-time decision.

Description: Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans will not play Wednesday due to an illness, according to Jennifer Hale of WVUE Fox 8.
Insight: Evans has averaged 22 ppg, 6.3 apg, 6.2 rpg, 1.0 spg in six games since he joined the starting lineup in place of Al-Farouq Aminu. With Eric Gordon also out sick Wednesday, look for Aminu, Anthony Morrow and Austin Rivers to play most of the SG/SF minutes.
 
Hot3/5/2014 9:31:00 AM
Description: Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans had another excellent game Tuesday, scoring 24 points with 11 assists, seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 43 minutes.
Insight: In four games since he replaced Al Farouq-Aminu in the starting lineup, Evans has averaged 40.1 minutes, 21.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.3 threes. We're surprised the Pelicans took so long to make the change after giving Evans a four-year, $44 million contract in the offseason. He averaged just 24.8 minutes and 12 ppg in 49 games off the bench.
 
Hot3/3/2014 5:14:00 PM
Description: Based on comments coach Monty Williams made, it sounds like Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans will remain in the starting lineup the rest of the season. Evans has started the last two games and averaged 38.1 minutes, 18 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.5 threes.
Insight: "I try to commit to lineups," Williams said, according to nola.com. "We had Al-Farouq (Aminu) in the lineup for a good portion of two years. When you commit to a guy, you commit to him, you try to help him as best you can. But then it reaches a point where you're like, 'OK, we've got to move in a different direction.'" Evans came off the bench the first 49 games of the season and averaged just 24.8 mpg, 12 ppg, 4.4 rpg and 4.4 apg.

Description: Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans will start for the first time all season Friday against the Suns.
Insight: New Orleans paid Evans $44 million over four years last summer, but it has played him just 24.8 minutes per game this season. He's averaging 12 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game.
 
Cold2/22/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans has scored eight points or less in five of his last seven games.
Insight: Evans had eight points, seven rebounds and seven assists Saturday against the Wizards and has averaged 22.4 minutes, 10.4 points on 36.4 percent shooting, 4.0 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 0.7 steals his last 18 games.

Description: A game after being benched, Tyreke Evans came back to score 23 points in a dominant effort Monday against Toronto.
Insight: Evans' line also included five rebounds, three steals and ten assists. It's been hard to trust Evans this year but he's still capable of going off at any moment. Fantasy owners will have to pick their spots with the talented 24-year-old.
 
Cold2/9/2014 9:44:00 PM
Description: Pelicans G/F Tyreke Evans was a DNP coach's decision Sunday against the Nets.
Insight: This is pretty bizarre as Evans logged 20 minutes in the team's previous game Friday versus the Timberwolves. He's having a bad enough season as it is. If Evans falls out of the rotation, it would be devastating to whatever fantasy value he has left. If you try and trade Evans now, you probably won't get much in return.

Description: New Orleans swingman Tyreke Evans is active for Friday's game against the Timberwolves. SOURCE: John Reid, New Orleans Times-Picayune
Insight: Evans sat out Wednesday because of a rib injury. He's been a relative disappointment this season, averaging just 12.5 ppg on 40.3 percent shooting. Obviously moving to the bench after being used as a starter in Sacramento hasn't helped matters.
 
2/7/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: Pelicans G/F Tyreke Evans is questionable for Friday's game against Minnesota due to a bruised right rib cage.
Insight: Evans is dealing with a cartilage issue in his ribs. This wouldn't impact New Orleans' starting lineup, but it should mean more playing time for the NBA's leading three-point shooter, Anthony Morrow (47.1 percent on three-pointers this season).
