Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans landed hard in the first quarter of a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and won't return to the game after injuring his left quad.

Evans was driving to the hoop towards the end of the first quarter when it appears his leg slipped out from underneath him as he landed awkwardly attempting a layup.

Evans, who will be a restricted free agent on July 1, has seen his productivity dip each year during his four-year career with the Kings. He averaged 20.1 points en route to winning the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in 2010, but this season his points have dipped down to a career low 15.3 points per game, although he is averaging career bests shooting 47 percent from the field and 34 percent from the three-point line.
