New Orleans Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of Game 1. He stated after the game that he "felt a little pop, felt a little snap" according to ESPN
Marc Stein of ESPN had the latest updates on Evans' status.
Tyreke Evans is addressing media now and says "I feel better." Won't practice today but hints he's gonna try to find a way to play in Game 2— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) April 19, 2015
Tyreke Evans calls himself a "gametime decision" for Monday night's Game 2. Monty Williams was more conservative and said "day to day"— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) April 19, 2015
Evans averaged 16.6 points, 6.6 assists and 5.3 rebounds in the regular season. As the secondary scorer after Anthony Davis, Evans' injury and potential absence would be a huge blow for the Pelicans who are trying to keep the series competitive. Without Evans, New Orleans must look to Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday as their primary ball-handlers.
