Tyreke Evans will start on Friday against the Blazers.
Evans has a tough matchup this evening against one of the better defending small forwards in the league in Nicolas Batum, so while you will start him in your season long leagues you should find a small forward/shooting guard eligible player who has a more favorable matchup for your daily league contests like Manu Ginobili or Kent Bazemore who will save you about $1K or more in salary and still provide solid production.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Nate Orchard (groin) is questionable for Monday's game against the Ravens.
Orchard has developed into a run-stuffing linebacker in the NFL, and will be missed if he cannot take the field in Week 12 against the Ravens, who will be looking to establish the run with Joe Flacco out of action. He has not built upon his sack abilities that he showcased in college at Utah, but the Browns are happy that he has developed into a run-stopper as their defense has been porous against running backs the past couple of seasons.
