Tyreke Evans Hasn't Told the Kings He Is Staying Home

Kings guard Tyreke Evans hasn't informed Kings management or coaches he'll stay home to nurse his foot injury as the team embarks on a three-game road trip, reports Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.

Evans' brother Doc tweeted last night (as you've seen on the front page of StR) that he had spoken to Tyreke, and that the second-year guard would be remaining in Sacramento. But Kings president Geoff Petrie told Jones that the team hadn't heard from Evans, and did not know whether he'd continue to try to play through the injury or request rest.

The Kings last played Saturday. If Evans misses the road trip, he would have a full week of rest for his foot before the Rockets visit Sunday. The road trip includes stops in Houston, New Orleans and Oklahoma City. The Kings are 2-6 on the road this season, and 1-5 against the West on the road. Sacramento is just 1-10 against the Western Conference in total, the win in the season opener against the Wolves.
