Evans was expected to play a large role as a senior after leading the team in assists and steals each of the past two seasons. The 5'11" guard from Hampton, Va. started every game for a Cavaliers team that was a 10-seed in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. He averaged career highs in points (7.3) and assists (3.9) and was named to the ACC All-Defensive Team. It's unclear how he hurt the foot that required surgery.
The good news is that Evans' injury most likely won't have a major effect on Virginia's season. The six-week timeframe puts Evans' recovery shortly after the team's season opener, which will be Nov. 9 against George Mason. Evans should be ready to play with his team only having played a handful of games without him, with ample time to shake off rust and get back into the rotation before the start of conference play.
