Tracy Wolfson is one of the best sideline reporters in the industry, but we all have one of those moments. Before Game 2 of the Pelicans-Warriors series tipped off, Wolfson filed a report about injuries to New Orleans guards Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday. The sideline reporter said that both players would miss the game due to injury.
However, just as Wolfson said Evans would be out, TNT cameras showed him walking onto the floor for the opening tip! Wolfson must have got the memo because at the end of the report she pulled a 180 and reported that Evans was good to go.
Both guards were questionable for tonight’s game, but it was reported about an hour before the game that Evans would play while Holiday would sit. Or, it could be that Evans just surpassed Willis Reed for the most miraculous and quickest comeback from injury in NBA history. Bill Walton did once compare him to Steve Jobs and Einstein, after all.
