MIAMI (AP) — Memphis Grizzlies guard Tyreke Evans will undergo a precautionary MRI Sunday (Monday, PHL time) on injured right ribs that forced him to miss their game at Miami.
Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said he doesn’t anticipate a long absence for Evans, who is averaging a team-high 19.4 points per game.
Evans left Friday’s (Saturday, PHL time) game against Cleveland in the fourth quarter because of the injury. Jarell Martin started for Evans against Miami on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time).
