Pelicans' Evans has knee surgery, to heal 6-8 weeks
CBS Sports 64+ SHARES
Evans is out 6-8 weeks after knee surgery.
The New Orleans Pelicans acquired Tyreke Evans in a sign-and-trade last offseason in an attempt to add a dynamic scoring option to their rotation.
With Anthony Davis entering his second year and the team trading two first round picks for Jrue Holiday, the Pelicans were going all in on trying to return to the playoffs.
Evans managed to play in 72 games, but that doesn't mean he didn't have his own injuries as well.
The former Rookie of the Year had successful knee surgery on Wednesday to clean out some scar tissue from his right knee and going to be out for the next six to eight weeks.
