Tyreke Evans will not play for Pacers Monday due to tight back

Indiana Pacers guard Tyreke Evans (lower back soreness) will not play on Monday versus the Golden State Warriors.

What It Means:

The injury may help explain Evans' disappointing showing on Saturday in his first start since Victor Oladipo (knee) went down for the season. He finished with 9 points (4-of-7 field goals), 3 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 triple in 23.8 minutes. Edmond Sumner, Cory Joseph, and Aaron Holiday could all see more run with Evans sidelined. Sumner, a 2017 second-round pick, was specifically mentioned by Pacers head coach Nate McMillan recently as a player who could see more minutes moving forward.

Evans is averaging 19.6 FanDuel points through 44 games (12 starts). numberFire's models expect him to record 11.9 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.1 triples per contest over the remainder of the year.
