Tyreke Evans (knee, calf) ruled out on Sunday.
Not surprisingly, Evans will not suit up this weekend. He was close to a return until he experienced some tightness in his calf recently. The Pelicans are likely to play it safe with their injury prone veteran. Even when does return, he will likely be on a minutes restriction for the early going. According to coach Alvin Gentry they envision Evans playing a similar role that Lance Stephenson played the first two weeks of the season.
