Evans (knee) averaged 16.6 points, 6.6 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 0.9 three-pointers, and 0.5 blocks in 34 minutes in 79 games during the 2014-15 season. He was the team runner-up in points and assists for the season.

Evans saw a significant role change halfway through the season, due to Jrue Holiday's devastating ankle injury in January. As a result, Evans took over point guard duties and the Pelicans finished out the season with a 26-17 record. He made his first ever postseason appearance, starting all four games in the first round series. Evans averaged 10.0 points, 5.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.5 three-pointers, and 0.3 blocks in 31 minutes in the four games against the eventual-champion Warriors. In game one, Evans suffered a left knee contusion but played through it the remainder of the series. He then underwent arthroscopic surgery in late May. There is no timetable for Evans' return, although he should be ready to go by the start of the season. He is under contract with the Pelicans through the 2016-17 season.

Evans is out on the floor going through his usual pregame routine. Assuming he makes it through pregame without issue, he'll likely be in the lineup. With Jrue Holiday (leg) also a game-time call, the Pelicans' backcourt could be in flux. In the event that both Evans and Holiday are ruled out, Norris Cole will get the start.

Evans (knee) is considered questionable for Monday's Game 2 against the Warriors after his MRI results revealed a bone bruise, Sam Amick of USA Today Sports reports.

Evans labeled himself as a game-time decision for Monday's contest so he's obviously in some sort of discomfort since the upcoming matchup against the Warriors will be the most important game for the Pelicans since Evans joined the team back in 2013.
