with my guy @tyrekeevans after #pelicans open practice. s/o to all the fans that came out this morning… instagram.com/p/ulXGYqCwkB/

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans was late arriving to practice. Coach Monty said it's an internal issue and the team would deal with it.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans working with the white team - the backups - in scrimmage.

Nakia Hogan

Tyreke Evans is now on the court for the White team to start second half.

John Reid

No alarm folks - I'm told by the Pelicans that Tyreke Evans is fine. Getting in some rest time today.

Jason Calmes

Tyreke Evans is at the Smoothie King Center but not participating in the Pelicans open practice today..

Nakia Hogan

Tyreke Evans just made his way onto the practice court.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans are set to start their open practice at Smoothie King Center. The only player missing is Tyreke Evans. No word on where he is yet

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans handed out 7 assists in his first 2 preseason games (in only 20 minutes per), but scoring more tonight (13 pts/6 reb/2 ast)

Jimmy Smith

Tyreke Evans' mid-range jumper hasn't translated well from the practice gym to a game yet.

John Reid

Pelicans showing quick-strike capability now. Eric Gordon has made back-to-back shots and Tyreke Evans just drove lane for layup.

Jimmy Smith

Rough start for Tyreke Evans: he's 1 of 5 from the field. Several mid-range jumpers have failed to go in.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans already with two fouls with 1:55 remaining in first quarter.

Nakia Hogan

Tyreke Evans as a point-forward looks good. He has been solid on defense too.

John Reid

Pelicans' Jrue Holiday, Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon in the starting lineup together tonight for first time in preseason.

Eric Gordon

s/o to the whole squad on a good preseason effort tonight. great seeing @tyrekeevans return to play.… instagram.com/p/uPSlNcCwpZ/

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans on NOLA's firepower: "We saw it last year, but injuries set us back. If we stay healthy, scoring's not going to be an issue."

Jim Eichenhofer

Tyreke Evans excels in preseason debut, Anthony Davis 2nd straight big game, Pelicans thump OKC. Comment here: on.nba.com/1rh6Pav

Jim Eichenhofer

Funny moment: An excited Ryan Anderson trying to get Tyreke Evans to look at Pelivision, when Evans was shown as being picked Player of Game

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans now have Tyreke Evans on the court playing what should be considered SF. Jrue Holiday & Austin Rivers at guard spots.

Nakia Hogan

Halftime: Pelicans 64, OKC 45. It was a really good half from Tyreke Evans, who had 8 points and 5 assists in 12 minutes.

John Reid

Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans had their way in the first half. Holiday made four of his first five shots.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans' two-handed dunk after baseline drive. The guy is playing like he hadn't miss any time.

Nakia Hogan

The Pelicans are a much more explosive team with Tyreke Evans on the floor,

Jimmy Smith

Monty Williams being smart about @Tyreke Evans' minutes; sits him with 5:27 to go 1Q. No need to rush him back. Seems ready to go.

Jim Eichenhofer

Not a bad 6:33 stint in his preseason debut for Tyreke Evans (6 points, 3 assists, 1 block). NOLA leads 24-8

Jim Eichenhofer

Early highlights: Anthony Davis with block of a 3-pointer (Perry Jones), a rarity in NBA except for by him. Tyreke 3-point play, looks quick

John Reid

Nice spin around move by Tyreke Evans for shot in the lane. He's attacking just like he did during the final stretch of last season.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans makes nice drive to the basket for layup. Looks quick tonight.

Jim Eichenhofer

It took less than 30 seconds for Tyreke Evans to connect with Anthony Davis for alley oop dunk. That duo was great in 2nd half of '13-14

John Reid

Pelicans' Tyreke Evans looks eager to play after missing the first four preseason games. Wondering will he emerge like last season?

Jimmy Smith

Again, no @Eric Gordon tonight for the #Pelicans. Back spasms. But @Tyreke Evans (hamstring) makes his preseason debut.

Sean Kelley

The Pels get @Tyreke Evans back from injury tonight. He will start. #Pelicans http://t.co/aA0ydx1IvU

Jim Eichenhofer

Starting lineups for tonight's game, Tyreke Evans at guard with Jrue Holiday. Familiar face Lance Thomas in OKC five: http://t.co/JeItfcLw3l

Jason Calmes

Tyreke Evans to get the start at SG tonight in Gordon's absence.

Nakia Hogan

With Eric Gordon out, Tyreke Evans will start at SG and Luke Babbitt starts at SF tonight for the Pelicans.

John Reid

Pelicans release their lineup for tonight - Tyreke Evans starting at shooting guard.

Sean Kelley
