Tyreke Evans sat out the Sacramento Kings' game on Monday against the Suns.
Evans has missed seven of 10 games since suffering a bruised left knee.
An MRI showed no structural damage to Evans' knee.
Keith Smart said it isn't his call to make on whether Evans need extended rest to recover from the soreness.
"That's something that's going to come down to him and the medical staff," Smart said. "My thing is, when I see that you can't move, I've got to pull the plug on you. It's up to you, the medical staff and your representatives to make that final call."
