Tyreke Evans in, Tim Frazier out for the New Orleans Pelicans

New, comments

Watch the play that led to Frazier’s injury against the Golden State Warriors.

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Dallas Mavericks Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Tyreke Evans was upgraded to probable this morning by the New Orleans Pelicans, one day after moving up to questionable on the injury report. He should appear against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday evening, but don’t expect to see him in large doses at the outset.

At the start of the month, Alvin Gentry had mentioned Evans would be capped to around 3-minute stretches. If that remains the case, expect him to be limited for an extensive period, perhaps for much of the remaining 2016-17 schedule.

That said, Evans claims he feels no pain in his troublesome right knee anymore; however, he will play it safe per his doctor’s recommendations.

In sadder news, Tim Frazier is going to be out for the foreseeable future with a bum wrist.

In case you missed, Frazier got injured on this play against the Golden State Warriors after crashing to the ground following a contested lay-up attempt.

It just figures that as soon as the Pelicans get an important chip back, the team loses another one, eh?
