Tyreke Evans said on his Instagram account on Wednesday evening he has undergone a successful surgery.
Evans had been dealing with knee issues throughout the tail-end of the season but played through them like a champ. With the knee cleaned out and ample time to heal, Evans should be on his way to supplanting Eric Gordon as the Pelicans' shooting guard next year.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Joffrey Lauvergne practiced in full Thursday.
Lauvergne has missed the last 12 games due to a back injury but was back practicing in full on Thursday. It's a great sign for the second year pro who played well when he was healthy. He started the three games he played so we will wait and see if that's what Denver has in store for him when he returns to the lineup. Analysis: James Grande
Johnny Manziel was demoted because he lied about were he was.
When video surfaced of Manziel out partying, you just knew that head coach Mike Pettine had enough of this far-too scrutinized situation. Manziel has been a veritable nightmare for the coaches and continues to show a complete lack of maturity. Josh McCown will get the start in Week 12 and, barring injury, is likely the full-time starter moving forward. Analysis: Howard Bender
