"Plantar fasciitis is a common, painful foot condition. Patients, and sometimes doctors often confuse the terms plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. Plantar fasciitis refers to the syndrome of inflammation of the band of tissue that runs from the heel along the arch of the foot"

Evans told reporters following Monday night's game between the Kings and the Los Angeles Clippers that he is considering a procedure on his ailing left foot that could sideline him for an extended period of 3-4 months, effectively ending his season. "I talked to my agent today and I was thinking about, maybe getting something done to it earlier, I would probably miss three months or something, I don’t know." (CBSSports.com)
Even with this foot injury, Tyreke Evans has averaged 16.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.2 assists so far this season. Up until this point he has only missed 2 games, but if his foot condition worsens it is very likely that he will go through with the surgery. Even if he opts to have the surgery in the next week, the 3-4 month recovery period would put an end to his 2010-11 season. The Kings' last regular season game is scheduled for April 12, 2011 against the Lakers.
