Tyreke Evans practices, hopes to play Wednesday

Kings guard Tyreke Evans practiced Monday after missing the last two games with a bruised left knee.

Evans bumped knees with Minnesota forward Andrei Kirilenko last Tuesday.

Evans said he felt "50/50" about playing Wednesday against the Toronto Raptors. Evans said he would continue to receive treatment Tuesday and if he felt better he planned to play.

Kings coach Keith Smart is optimistic that he will have Evans back.

"I think he will be but you can't pinpoint that," Smart said. "We'll see how he responds because he finally got back on the floor running and cutting."

Evans said he didn't realize how badly he'd injured his knee until after the game last week.

"Just a sharp pain when I was I home," Evans said. "I was in the bed trying to sleep and I was like moving around and bend my leg it would catch me off guard and it was like oh (shoot) it hurt."
