Tyreke Evans leaves with an ankle sprain in preseason debut with Pelicans (VIDEO)

Oct 5, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

The Pelicans signed Tyreke Evans to a large free agent contract this summer, so obviously the last thing they want to see is the player they just invested in go down with an injury in the first game of the preseason.

Evans landed awkwardly after hitting a shot in the lane early in the second quarter of the Pelicans’ preseason opener in Houston, and required help to make it from the floor into the locker room.

The X-rays were negative as far as showing any fractures, but an MRI is on the horizon for Evans in the coming days.
