Tyreke Evans leaves game with ankle injury

By: Pelicans.com

New Orleans reserve swingman Tyreke Evans sustained a left ankle sprain while driving to the basket with 2:10 remaining in the third quarter of Friday's game vs. Oklahoma City. He was ruled out for the game due to the injury. The sprain was a non-contact one; Evans appeared to misstep and landed awkwardly as he dribbled across the lane going right to left. He missed games during preseason due to a sprain of the same ankle.
