Evans season could be over for the Pelicans

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

New Orleans Pelicans point guard Tyreke Evans is expected to undergo season-ending surgery on his right knee. That's according to John Reid of the Times-Picayune/Nola.com

It will be the third surgery Evans has undergone since May on the same knee. He missed the past seven games because of tendinitis. 

Head Coach Alvin Gentry said this morning that ''There is a possibility it could be something to keep (Evans) out for the rest of the season.''

Gentry also went on to say, "Tyreke Evans is in the process of meeting with specialists to get second opinions."

Evans underwent surgery in October to remove bone chips from his right knee that forced him to miss the first 17 games of the season.

Evans' problems began during the first week in training camp at The Greenbrier in West Virginia, when he bumped knees with a teammate.

Evans had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in May after the 2014-15 season, but fully recovered during the offseason.
