Sacramento Kings Roster Report 2009-11-20

Sacramento Kings Roster Report 2009-11-20ROTATION: Starters -- Guard Beno Udrih, Guard Tyreke Evans, Small forward Donte' Greene, Power forward Jason Thompson, Center Spencer Hawes. Bench -- Forward Omri Casspi, guard Ime Udoka, forward Kenny Thomas, forward Jon Brockman.


--G Tyreke Evans became the first Kings rookie to score at least 20 points in five consecutive games since Lionel Simmons in 1990-91. Evans had exactly 20 against the Bulls.

--F Donte' Greene scored a career-high 24 points in only his fifth career start.

--G Beno Udrih told the Sacramento Bee that playing at home was partially to blame for the loss to Chicago because, he said, the Kings were trying too hard. "We overdribble sometimes and get in trouble and then try to look for a pass out and they get a steal," Udrih said. "So those kind of mistakes are hurting us because they lead to easy layups on the other side. When we learn and get better at that we're going to be right there."


--F Andres Nocioni (right hip pointer) did not play Tuesday vs. Chicago and is day-to-day.

--G/F Francisco Garcia (right wrist fracture) is out at least until mid-February after his exercise ball accident on Oct. 9. The fifth-year player was bench pressing with 90-pound dumbbells in each arm when the ball exploded and the weights caused the injury that required surgery.

--G Kevin Martin is out at least eight weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a hairline fracture in his left wrist on Nov. 9.
