LOS ANGELES -- Rookie scoring leader Tyreke Evans did not make the trip to Los Angeles for the Sacramento Kings' game against the Clippers because of a slight concussion and facial injuries he sustained in a double-overtime loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Evans missed his sixth game of the season on Sunday. The point guard's injuries -- including a bruised jaw, lacerated gums and chipped teeth -- resulted from Ersan Ilyasova's inadvertent elbow while they were going for a loose ball during the final minute of regulation on Friday night.

X-rays and a CT scan Evans had Saturday came out negative. He will be re-evaluated on Monday before the Kings host Memphis.

He is averaging 20.3 points in 37.3 minutes.
