INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indiana guard Tyreke Evans will sit out the Pacers’ game Saturday night at Cleveland because of a violation of team rules.
”I was late for practice,” Evans said in a tweet posted by the team Friday. ”This is the most professional and team-oriented organization I have been with in my career. They deserve my best every day and I am disappointed in myself for causing a distraction that prevents me from being able to help my team tomorrow. I will do better.”
Evans has averaged 3.6 points and 21.2 minutes in five games this season, his first with the Pacers and 11th in the NBA. He also has played for Sacramento, New Orleans and Memphis.
