Dan Besbris is a man who often likes to toe the line, but after a rather impactful Saturday, the weekend recap goes the full hour.

Tyreke Evans (food poisoning) is questionable to face the Wolves on Thursday.
Evans looks likely to miss another game with the food poisoning. Wesley Mathews, Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday look to continue to pick up the extra minutes left by Evans' absence. Wes Mathews has been shooting the ball well his last handful of games and looks to be in another good spot tonight vs. the Wolves.

Food poisoning will prevent Tyreke Evans from playing against the Mavs on Wednesday night.
Aaron Holiday is going to have a chance to shine with Evans out and Edmond Sumner in the G-League. Wesley Matthews and Cory Joseph should also help make up for Evans' absence, but Holiday's the one who will see the biggest jump in playing time. It's not a situation that needs to be monitored outside of deeper leagues, as Matthews is the only one here with standard-league appeal, and that doesn't change based on Evans' availability.

Tyreke Evans (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavs.
Evans is dealing with a case of food poisoning. He's only a deep-league option but his absence would open up more minutes for Aaron Holiday.

Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) is available to play in Monday's contest with the Pistons.
Evans managed to play on a back-to-back on Saturday, but only managed two points in 14 minutes. He's had a few nice games, but they've been followed up by stinkers. Since the Victor Oladipo injury, Evans has disappointed relative to what we thought he'd be able to do. The role is there for a breakout, but he's just a deep-league option for now.

Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) is being listed as questionable vs. the Pistons on Monday.
Evans has been a huge disappointment in the absence of Victor Oladipo and just hasn't stepped up like his owners would've wanted or expected him to. He's playing just 19 minutes over the past month and shooting 38.5 percent from the field in that time. The Pacers seem to be winning even without him playing well so they have no need to play him a ton of minutes. The potential for a breakout is there, but as of right now he's just a deep-league option.

Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) was able to play on Saturday night but only posted two points and two steals in 14 minutes.
Evans had 17 points with six cash counters on Friday while also playing through the same injury, but there's not enough juice for fantasy purposes. Every good game is followed up by several bad ones.

Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) will play in Saturday's game against the Wizards.
Evans was questionable for this one after playing through the injury in the last game. Even with him in the lineup, he's just a deep-league option.

Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) is questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Pacers.
Evans was able to play through the injury last night and had a nice game with 17 points and a 2-2-2 money counter line. We'd imagine that he's able to play tonight but if he can't it'll lead to more minutes for Aaron Holiday and Edmond Sumner. Despite the performance yesterday, Evans is only a deep-league option or streaming target.

Myles Turner (bruised left hip) will miss Friday’s game vs. the Pelicans while Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) will play.
Domantas Sabonis gets a but more usage while Kyle O’Quinn could be a nice, cheap DFS play as he’s expected to start for Turner. Evans has been outside the top-200 in 9-cat for most of the season and isn’t a good option in most formats.

Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle) is questionable for Friday after going through a limited practice on Thursday, and he could be headed for an MRI.
Evans tweaked his ankle in the last game before the All-Star break and is still dealing with some soreness. He's not a fantasy option, though his potential absence might leave more minutes open for Wes Matthews and Aaron Holiday.

Tyreke Evans returned to the bench Monday as Wes Matthews took over the starting SG role, playing 20 minutes, and putting up 12 points with two threes on seven attempts.
Well, he actually played a few minutes more than he did in the last two games. Given Matthews' role in the starting lineup, Tyreke's ceiling will be capped unless there's a backcourt injury. He could still put up late-round value, but we don't blame you if you're ready to cut him standard leagues.

Tyreke Evans shot 2-for-7 from the field for seven points, six boards, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes in a blowout win over the Lakers on Tuesday.
Evans drew the start over Cory Joseph but couldn't establish a solid rhythym due to the blowout. With Victor Oladipo done for the season, Evans should be on the radar as a standard league asset.

Tyreke Evans is replacing Cory Joseph in the starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Lakers.
Evans came off the bench for two games after missing a pair of games with lower back soreness. He has a shot at top-150 value with Victor Oladipo done for the year and the starting gig likely his from here on out, though you'd be forgiven for taking a wait-and-see approach here given Evans' play so far this season.

Tyreke Evans (lower back soreness) returned in Saturday's win against the Heat and scored zero points on 0-of-7 shooting in 16 minutes of action.
He will likely return to the starting lineup soon, but he came off the bench in this one and did not play well. Cory Joseph, who had four points, six rebounds, six assists and three steals, has been starting in his place. Both guys could end up being late-round assets as their volume should go up with Victor Oladipo out for the season.
