Per Sacramento Bee beat writer Jason Jones:
Smart does not expect Tyreke Evans (sore left knee) to play tonight.— JasonJones (@mr_jasonjones) December 18, 2012
Marcus Thornton will rejoin team in time for Wednesday's game vs Golden State— JasonJones (@mr_jasonjones) December 18, 2012
Tyreke left after the first quarter of Sunday Night's loss to Denver and did not return. Evans has missed five games due to his sore knee. Thornton has been absent for the past week while caring for his ailing mother but it looks like he will be returning to the team on Wednesday.
Look for veteran swingman Francisco Garcia to start in Evans' place tonight. It is unknown whether Tyler Honeycutt will be available to play, as he was just recalled from the Reno Bighorns today. Even if he is, it is very unlikely that he would play considering his lack of practice time with the team.
