Evans (shoulder) will play Monday against Portland, Trail Blazers reporter Casey Holdahl reports.

EDGE Analysis

Evans had been nursing a right shoulder injury following Saturday's loss to Houston, but it was never considered overly serious and won't cost him any time. The 28-year-old has experienced a rebirth, of sorts, though the first month-plus of the season and is averaging 21.6 points, 4.4 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game in November (31.1 MPG).

Evans is dealing with a right shoulder injury and is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Evans has been on an absolute tear to start this season, averaging 17.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.0 steal across 15 games. However, it appears he may have picked up a shoulder injury during Saturday's game against the Rockets and is now in danger of being sidelined for the first time this season. Look for another update following the team's morning shootaround Monday, but if he ends up sitting out, Dillon Brooks and Ben McLemore would likely benefit with more minutes on the wing.

Evans totaled 27 points (11-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, and three assists in 33 minutes during Monday's 110-103 loss to the Bucks.

EDGE Analysis

Evans has scored 20 points or more in all six November contests, and he was also extremely efficient in this one (just one turnover). Most surprisingly, Evans has already sunk 26 treys (2.0 per game on 44.1 percent), this after averaging just 0.7 per game on 29.5 percent through his first eight seasons (473 games). Furthermore, this is the first time he is shooting above 50 percent from the field (52.3 percent) in his career, with his previous best (47.8 percent) happening all the way back in 2012-13.

Evans provided 22 points (8-12 FG, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, six assists and three steals off the Grizzlies' bench in a 111-96 loss to the Houston Rockets on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Evans has now scored at least 19 points in six-straight games, as he's becoming one of the best bench players in the league. In fact, Evans is averaging 23 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.8 steals across his last six games. That's top-50 value from a guy who was drafted across the industry and it appears he'll be a major factor going forward, considering he's playing over 30 minutes per game and ranking as one of the highest usage players on the roster.

Evans scored 21 points (8-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT) to go along with two rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 98-97 win over the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Evans has established himself as a valuable fantasy option again as a member of the Grizzlies as he is averaging 17.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.0 three-pointers in 27 minutes per game. The Grizzlies desperately need his scoring and play making ability off the bench, so expect him to continue to have a significant role.

Evans posted 26 points (10-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two assists, a rebound and a steal across 32 minutes in Sunday's 107-102 loss to the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

While it appears rookie Dillon Brooks is finding his way into the starting lineups, playing as a hybrid two isn't his strong suit. They elected to go a little bigger with their lineup but deferred quickly to Evans for Brooks, and he took advantage of the opportunity. Evans keeps finding ways into the lineup, and it will be interesting to see how things shake down with Evans and Brooks as they move forward. It could be people like Andrew Harrison and James Ennis who will be moving aside. At the moment Evans is nothing more than a tournament punt play, but that could change quickly.

Evans scored 20 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3PT, 6-6 FT) to go with three rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes in Saturday's 113-104 win against the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Evans followed up his Wednesday's 30 point performance with his second highest scoring performance of the season. In addition, Evans saw the floor for over 30 minutes for the third straight game. The Memphis guard has lined himself up behind Mike Conley as the first reserve guard off of the bench, offering up the possibility of more high-scoring performances from the bench.

Evans exploded for 32 points (13-20 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 101-99 loss to the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

Finishing with a season high in scoring, threes, steals, and minutes, Evans was unconscious from beyond the arc, and he stepped up and played very well with Mike Conley (Achilles) sidelined. Evans has burst onto the scene as a surprise Sixth Man of the Year candidate here in the early stages of 2017-18, scoring in double figures during seven of eight games. Offense has long been something that the Grizzlies needed outside of Conley and Marc Gasol, and Evans clearly looks revitalized in this his first year with Memphis.

Evans led Memphis in scoring on Monday, as he provided 19 points (6-17 FG), 10 rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes of action in a 104-99 loss to the Charlotte Hornets.

EDGE Analysis

Evans led Memphis in scoring in this game, as he did all of his damage off the bench. The 19 points scored matches a season-high for Evans, while the 30 minutes set a new season-high. What's interesting about Evans Memphis tenure is that he's done more rebounding than assisting this season, as he is averaging 2.2 assists and 6.4 rebounds per game. If he can just get that assisting number closer to five, Evans may become a fantasy relevant option yet again.

Evans tallied 19 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes in Thursday's 96-91 victory over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Evans appears to have slotted in well to his new surroundings, putting up solid numbers in his fifth consecutive game. His health is always going to remain a question, but he has demonstrated that he can produce when on the floor. He is not going to help you in any one category, but will do a bit of everything on any given night. His minutes will likely remain capped for the foreseeable future, so he is only worth a look in deep-leagues.
