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.

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.
