Kings rookie struggles with plantar fasciitis, will see specialist. Posted by Matt Moore
Plantar faciitis is such a bummer of an injury. It takes power forwards and makes them statues, and turns guards into cars without fuel, coasting along with someone behind them pushing. Everything gets more difficult, and worse, it's a painful, distracting injury that only really gets better with rest. But that's not stopping Tyreke Evans from trying to figure out an alternative.
Evans tweeted today that he'll be visiting a specialist for his foot. He maintains it's not a concern, just something his agent wants him to do, but the fact that the problem has been escalated to this point means there's a significant issue with it. It's clearly affecting his play. Evans has been tentative, inconsistent, and much less explosive this season than he was in his historic rookie season.
