New Orleans Pelicans Rumors
Tyreke Evans will seek a second opinion from specialists outside of the team’s medical staff before he possibly undergoes season-ending surgery on his right knee for the third time since May, New Orleans Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said Wednesday.
Gentry acknowledged that Evans’ knee injury is more serious than the tendinitis problem the Pelicans listed him as having since Jan. 28. ”There is a possibility it could be something to keep him out for the rest of the season, but we won’t know that until the opinions are gathered and the information is processed and then the decision will be made,” Gentry said.
The Wizards are looking for help at the power forward spot and a stretch-four type player is very appealing. Keep an eye on New Orleans Pelicans forward Ryan Anderson, Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker and Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booker – all players the Wizards have at least inquired about.
