08:09 AM ET 03.15 | The Kings are getting closer to their full compliment of key players. Guard Tyreke Evans will visit foot specialist Dr. Richard Ferkel Tuesday morning for a follow-up appointment regarding plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Evans, who has missed the past 14 games, underwent three shock-wave treatments for the condition over the previous three weeks. Coach Paul Westphal said Evans said he "feels good" and can't wait for the OK to stop wearing a walking boot. "Assuming everything checks out, he'll be cleared to start practicing," Westphal said. "It will probably be a week to 10 days. I'm getting ahead of it because that's not the doctor talking, but that's what we hope he will say."

Said it before.....and I'll say it again.....they need to shut Evans down for the season and just let him heal.....completely!

Kings are rebuilding and getting some nice young players. Cousins has huge potential, Evans was rookie of year... Casspi looks like he will become a good NBA player...Marcus Thorton (what were the hornets thinking giving up on a scorer like that and trading for Carl Landry?).. its easy to kick a team when they are down. Every team goes through dry spells.

Dry Spells???

I hope that was an attempt at Humor :-)

I just checked Wikipedia for review and the Kings haven't been in the NBA Finals since 1950 (as the Rochester Royals - which they won - figures they beat the Knicks that year)...

However... You make a good point on the youngsters...

dry spells or drought ...meaning lack of winning record (over .500) ..making the playoffs.... competing every night.

Winning ring(s) is the ultimate goal of course.
But there are plenty of franchises who have never won a champion chip at all.
