For much of last season plantar fasciitis slowed Tyreke Evans. He missed long stretches of games (19 at one point), and when he did play he was not exploding to the hole in the way that won him Rookie of the Year (he got to the rim two fewer times per game in his sophomore campaign).
There is only one real cure for plantar fasciitis – rest. That is what Tyreke Evans has gotten since the season ended.
And he told Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated it worked.
“I’m 100 percent. My foot is fine. I’m just looking for this year to start and to go out there and play. When it’s time, I’ll go out there and just play like I played my first year in the league. [Last season] I was [always] thinking about it.”
Evans is playing a little, ball, he is scheduled to be part of an All-Star exhibition game in Manila. And with more time to go this summer (even if the NBA starts next season on schedule) he should be good to for what will be an interesting Kings team. With DeMarcus Cousins, John Salmons and Jimmer Fredette, they have some guys who can score but how it all gets blended together will be the challenge.
