Tyreke Evans has a right knee bone bruise and will not return.
First it was Brian Roberts going down with an ankle injury and now Evans. The Pelicans now turn to Austin Rivers. Evans seems like he'll be out for the duration of the season, but the team will obviously update his condition over the weekend. With no playoffs coming though, it doesn't make any sense to push him to return.ANALYST: Howard Bender
George Springer went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI in the Astros 6-2 loss to the Tigers on Friday.
Springer has now collected two hits in three straight games which has helped raise his average from .195 to .214 on the season. A concussion sidelined Springer in early May but he has played well since his return, hitting .282 with six runs, two home runs and four RBI. Fantasy owners will have to deal with the low batting average as Springer is once again on pace to rank among the league leaders in strikeouts but he’s already reached double-digit stole bases and could flirt with a 30/30 season given his potential.
