Kings' Evans (knee) hopes to return soon


Posted Jan 2, 2013 6:05 PM

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- The Sacramento Kings hope guard Tyreke Evans will return from a sore left knee when the team gets back home next week.

The Kings said Wednesday that a second opinion Evans got on his bothersome knee from Dr. Steve Lombardo in Los Angeles supported the team's treatment and rehabilitation plan.

Evans will rejoin the team in Toronto and the Kings say they anticipate he will play during the upcoming five-game homestand that starts Monday against Memphis.

Evans has missed 13 games this season because of his nagging knee. He averaged 15.1 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists in the 18 games he has played.

The 2009-10 NBA Rookie of the Year will be a restricted free agent after the season.
