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
