Tyreke Evans may skip games to deal w/ plantaar fasciitis, sprained ankle. He already wears splint at night and may use a walking boot.— Scott Howard-Cooper (@SHowardCooper) December 3, 2010
After snagging the Rookie of the Year award for the 2009-10 season, Tyreke Evans has gotten off to a slow start in 2010-11. Part of his regression has been due to some nagging injuries: He's dealing with plantar fasciitis and a sprained ankle. And according to Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com, it looks like it may be time for Evans to rest. "Evans may skip games to deal with plantar fasciitis, sprained ankle," he tweeted. "He already wears splint at night and may use a walking boot." The Kings are off to a rough 4-12 start, and though Evans isn't playing at his highest level, losing their star would obviously still be a blow. If Evans indeed misses some games, Beno Udrih or Francisco Garcia could replace him in the starting lineup at the 2 alongside Luther Head at the 1. Head has started the last several games at point guard for Sacramento.
