Seems everywhere you look in the NBA right now guys are banged up and playing through pain, like you normally see in March. Not October.

Add Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans to the list, the Sacramento King guard drove the lane against the Lakers with 7:09 left, twisted his left ankle and came out of the game the rest of the way.

Actually, it was a little worse than that, he told the Sacramento Bee, Evans got two for the price of one.

“I turned this one on a fast break on (Lakers guard) Steve Blake, and I twisted it,” Evans said, pointing to his right ankle. “On the next one, I came down on (Lakers center) Theo Ratliff and twisted it. The left one hurts more…”

“For me, it seems like (this injury) happens all the time,” Evans said. “The way I play, I get to the basket.”

It also does not look that serious — Evans will not practice today but thought he would be back in a couple days. The team has not made an official statement on his status yet.
