SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans will miss the Rookie Challenge at All-Star weekend with an injured left foot.

Kings president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie announced Thursday that Evans had withdrawn from the game. He will be replaced by the Oklahoma City Thunder's James Harden on the sophomore team.

Evans missed the past two games because of plantar fasciitis in his left foot. He will meet with a doctor in Los Angeles next Monday for further evaluation.
