After missing two consecutive games with a sprained left ankle, New Orleans Pelicans swingman Tyreke Evans is hoping to return for this Saturday’s game against the Golden State Warriors.

But in addition to his sprain, Evans is also undergoing laser stem and ultra cell treatment for a bone bruise in his left ankle.

He will not play on Wednesday night against the Houston Rockets, although he is listed as day-to-day.

``I’m just trying to get the bone bruise cleared up,’’ Evans said after Wednesday’s shootaround at New Orleans Arena.

Evans’ re-aggravated his sprained left ankle during the second quarter in last Friday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks and did not return to play the entire second half. But Evans said he was experiencing soreness after they played Boston on Jan. 3.
