Sideline reporter Jennifer Hale reported on Friday that Tyreke Evans (knee) could return within the next two weeks and have a minutes restriction between 16-20 minutes.
Evans will be tested out as trade bait and it’s anybody’s guess if he can stay healthy or be a good fantasy asset. We’ve seen him jump into action and get right at it, but his inefficient and maddening offensive game was already teetering on the edge of being too slow to count on. He’s well worth an add with this news, however, especially in 8-cat leagues where he can be an easy mid-round value if it all pans out.
The @PelicansNBA could get Tyreke Evans back soon, possibly 2 weeks. He's pain free, down to 7% body fat. Expected Minute restriction: 16-20
