    Tyreke Evans led the Pacers in shot attempts in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Celtics as he had 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting.

    He is outside the top-240 on the season and has been one of the biggest fantasy busts of the season thus far. He added five assists, three rebounds and two 3-pointers but only shot 1-of-3 from the line. He is definitely not playing like he did in Memphis last season and can be left on the waiver wire in all formats.

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) will play on Friday vs. the Pistons.

    Evans was upgraded from questionable so it's safe to use him as you otherwise would, though with just top-220 9-cat value on the year, "safe" is a relative word here.

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

    Evans hasn't been able to sustain any fantasy value this season and the question will be whether the Pacers want to try to deal him or not. Getting him on the floor and playing well would help both parties get out of a bad deal.

    Tyreke Evans, originally a game-time decision, played on Wednesday and cooked up 19 points, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers on 7-of-9 from the field in 19 minutes of action.

    Where's this guy been all season? Evans has been dealing with knee issues over the past few days but didn't look like it tonight. This was a surprise for deep-league owners who've stuck with Evans through his awful season, but we'll need to see a few of these in a row before even considering him as a pickup in 12-team formats.

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) is a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Evans practiced on Monday and it seems as if the knee is back on the radar after he pushed through the issues last season. He hasn't been good this season and he would be the one piece the Pacers could remove that would be addition by subtraction.

    Tyreke Evans went through a practice on Monday and will likely be a game-time decision on Wednesday.

    Evans said he'd play on Sunday but ended up sitting out. He recently had fluid drained from his ailing right knee and the Pacers will take it easy with him, so fantasy owners shouldn't bother with Evans in lineups this week. Aaron Holiday is the likely winner in his absence, but any way you look at it this situation only has deep-league implications.

    Tyreke Evans (bruised right knee) had fluid drained from his knee and received a cortisone shot, but said, “I’ll be back next game when we play Washington.”

    Evans had the fluid drained to reduce inflammation and received the cortisone shot from the surgeon who has worked on his right knee in the past. It seems the treatments have done their job providing quick relief. Expect Evans to play Sunday vs. the Wizards. His return hampers Aaron Holiday's and Cory Joseph's minutes.

    Tyreke Evans (bruised right knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Wizards.

    Evans' knees have been issues for a long while and it's unclear if this is more injury related or if the team is simply holding him out of the rotation right now. Regardless, it brings Aaron Holiday back into the fold and gives Darren Collison and Cory Joseph room to breath if he continues to miss games.

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) has been ruled out of Friday’s game vs. the Nets.

    Evans’ absence means more run for Cory Joseph while rookie Aaron Holiday should rejoin the rotation. Doug McDermott is also a possible beneficiary.

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) is a true game-time decision for Friday’s game against the Nets.

    Evans was previously listed as questionable so he’ll see how he feels after pregame warmups. If he can’t go, Aaron Holiday and maybe Doug McDermott look to pick up his usage.

    Tyreke Evans (bruised right knee) is questionable to play on Friday.

    Evans missed last Sunday's game with the same injury but has been able to play since. He's not a fantasy option as he's fallen to the end of Indiana's rotation, and the Pacers can sub him out for Aaron Holiday without stressing too much about a dip in play. Evans is not worth owning in leagues with 14 teams or fewer.

    Tyreke Evans (knee bruise) will play in Tuesday's game vs. the Cavs.

    With Evans likely back into the lineup his owners will hope for a turnaround on the lackluster season he's having. It will be tough for Aaron Holiday to log minutes like he was when Evans was out so he's not worth owning in leagues.

    Tyreke Evans (knee bruise) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

    The GTD designation so far in advance isn't the best sign in the world, and Evans wasn't able to participate in any team drills at Monday's practice. Aaron Holiday will be in the rotation for as long as Evans is out.

    Tyreke Evans will sit out on Sunday because of a bruised right knee.

    With Evans out, Aaron Holiday will step into those minutes. The rookie has gotten the short end of the stick this year, being left out of the rotation despite some solid play whenever he gets his chances. We'll see what he can do against the Knicks today but he's definitely on the board as a DFS punt.

    Tyreke Evans (bruised right knee) is questionable to play on Sunday.

    Evans has moved back to the bench with the return of Victor Oladipo and is now fighting for playing time with Cory Joseph and Doug McDermott, and he's not really winning. He can be dropped in any formats with fewer than 16 teams.
