Will there ever be a year where the New Orleans Pelicans stay healthy so we can actually see what their team has to offer when their full core his together?
I guess 2015-2016 won’t be the year, as according to Shams Charania of the Vertical at Yahoo Sports, Pelicans guard/forward Tyreke Evans will miss the remainder 2015-2016 season due to knee surgery:
Pelicans' Tyreke Evans plans to undergo surgery on his right knee and likely out for rest of the season, league sources tell The Vertical.

The Pelicans had reportedly featuring Evans in trading talks along with teammates Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson, but Evans’ trade market will be virtually dead now after this news.
Evans, who of course won Rookie of the Year in 2009-2010 for the Sacramento Kings, was averaging 15.2 points, 6.6 assists, and 5.2 assists per game for New Orleans this year.
