Tyreke Evans has been battling plantar fasciitis — a foot condition where if feels like someone is ramming a knife into your heel with every step, something that tends to hamper you hoop game — all season long. He missed the Kings game Wednesday because the only real cure for this is rest.

Along those lines, Evans is going to skip the All-Star Rookie Challenge Friday night to rest his foot more.

In his place, James Harden will suit up for the West, bringing a little old man game to the young bucks showcase.

The All-Star Rookie Challenge starts at 9 p.m. Eastern and you can catch it on TNT.
