HOUSTON – After sustaining a right knee bone bruise Friday at Oklahoma City, New Orleans Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans will attempt to play Saturday, in the second game of a back-to-back. Roughly 90 minutes before tip-off, Pelicans Coach Monty Williams was still uncertain if Evans would be on the floor.

The news was less encouraging on point guard Brian Roberts, who will not play against the Rockets. Meanwhile, center Greg Stiemsma is also a game-time decision.
