The return of New Orleans Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans is expected “sooner rather than later,” according to general manager Dell Demps, but it won’t come on Friday against the LA Clippers. Evans, who has missed more than 10 months after undergoing a third right knee surgery in the span of nine months, experienced tightness in his left calf during practice Wednesday, per Demps, and has been ruled out of for at least the Pelicans’ next game. “We’re going to continue to hold him out until it’s safe for him to play,” Demps said. “We’re very pleased with his rehab so far. We’re not going to put a timetable on his return, but it should be sooner rather than later.”

Storyline: Tyreke Evans Injury
Demps said Evans is in “tremendous shape” and that the team is pleased with his recovery. The Pelicans plan to work him back in slowly to get into “basketball shape.” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said there’s “no way” Evans can play long stretches of minutes right now. “Obviously we’re going to monitor him,” Demps said. “Whenever a player starts to play — especially in the middle of the season – everybody else is already going 100 miles an hour and you’re kind of playing catch-up. You have to be smart.”
