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. An MRI showed no structural damage to the knee. 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.” “I think the doctors and training staff have done all they can possibly do,” Smart said. “Now it just comes down to pain tolerance. He plays a position where there’s different changes of direction, where you have to push off, and he’s an acceleration guy. He’s not a big guy that stands in one place or runs in a straight line.” via The Sacramento Bee

Suns end up with enough to defeat Kings

PHOENIX -- Losing at home to the Sacramento Kings wouldn't have been the end of the world.

Tyreke’s knee bone problem is my head bone problem.

For the second day in a row I am leading in with a player from the Sacramento Kings. Yesterday it was Isaiah Thomas, today it’s Tyreke Evans, he of the knee bone problem that may force him to miss “an extended period of time”. Drats! Apparently the guy can’t move around too well and you do need to move around a little bit to play the basketball. Sooo, where does that leave...
