Demps says the injury occurred while Evans was playing in a pickup basketball game away from team headquarters last week. Demps says Evans has returned to New Orleans to work with team medical and training staff and hopes to be cleared to play before the regular season opener on Oct. 28 against the Orlando Magic.

There is a sense around the league that the Pelicans would be open to moving Eric Gordon and possibly Austin Rivers; however, deals involving Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans or Jrue Holiday are not of much interest to the Pelicans and without question former top pick Anthony Davis is off the board.

Since he was inserted in the starting lineup against the Phoenix Suns last week, New Orleans Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans said he feels more comfortable than he did coming off the bench. In two games as a starter, Evans has averaged 18.0 points. ‘’I just know how to attack or make a play better when I’m starting,’’ Evans said. ‘’I’ve been starting my entire career and I’m comfortable at that position.’’ Williams said the move was prompted because they weren’t playing well and Al-Farouq Aminu hadn’t been able to overcome inconsistency. ``We’re trying to find lineups that are going to help us play better,’’ Williams said. ``He’s (Evans) been effective in the starting lineup.’’ New Orleans Times-Picayune

With Thursday’s trade deadline approaching, speculation persists about the New Orleans Pelicans' front office listening to offers for Eric Gordon and Tyreke Evans. But Pelicans coach Monty Williams said after Monday’s practice that he expects for both players to still be with the team after the trade deadline passes. ''I don’t know where all that stuff comes from man,’’ Williams said. ''It’s silly to me to put guys names out there like that. I don’t know how to answer that. ''I’m focused on tomorrow's practice. As far as I know, those guys are going to be here. All the trade stuff, I guess there is nothing else to talk about. It’s not something we put a lot of stock into as coaches.’’ New Orleans Times-Picayune

In a season that’s been a struggle for both the New Orleans Pelicans and its high-priced import Tyreke Evans, it seems like there’s a growing rift between player, coach and team. Evans did not play in Sunday night’s 93-81 loss to Brooklyn despite head coach Monty Williams playing 11 Pelicans players in the game. When asked why Evans didn’t play, Williams said “it’s just internal right now.” SheridanHoops
