Tyreke Evans Traveling With Kings, Listed As Day-to-Day

New, comments

The Kings have announced that guard Tyreke Evans, who is suffering from plantar fasciitis, will travel with the team today to embark on a three-game road trip. Evans is, however, listed as day-to-day, and could still sit out the games in Houston, New Orleans and Oklahoma City.

On Sunday, Evans' brother Doc tweeted that he had spoken to Tyreke and that he would be resting his foot for the foreseeable future. The Bee's Jason Jones followed that up by reporting that the Kings had not heard directly from Evans regarding his status.

Evidently, either Kings medical personnel or Evans made the call to push the second-year guard into at least being available on the road trip. Had Evans stayed in Sacramento, barring an aburpt call-up of Hassan Whiteside, who is currently stationed with the NBA D-League's Reno Bighorns, the Kings would have traveled with just 11 players, including four true guards.

The Kings play at Houston on Tuesday.
