Sore Knee Keeping Evans Out of Kings Lineup
Tyreke Evans’ sore left knee kept him out of Monday’s game against the Phoenix Suns at US Airways Center.
Since suffering a bruised left knee Nov. 27 against Minnesota, the veteran guard has missed seven of 10 games. Evans left Sunday’s loss to Denver after 10 minutes on the floor.
Kings coach Keith Smart said it’s not up to him whether Evans needs an extended break.
“That’s something that’s going to come down to him and the medical staff,” Smart said. “My thing is, when I see that you can’t move, I’ve got to pull the plug on you. It’s up to you, the medical staff and your representatives to make that final call.”
