No one is safe on the Sacramento Kings roster.
DeMarcus Cousins has joined the long list of walking wounded on the Kings latest injury report. The 25-year-old All-Star center banged his right knee in the team’s loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday night and he is now listed as questionable with a bruised knee when the Kings take on the Timberwolves in Minnesota Wednesday evening.
Cousins has missed a total of 10 games this season. Eight of those absences are due to early season injury issues and the other two are due to suspension. Sacramento is just 2-8 without their star big man.
The Kings’ starting center is having a career-year, averaging 27.1 points, 11.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks on the season. He’s fourth in the league in scoring and fifth in rebounding.
If Cousins is unavailable, George Karl will choose between Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein to match up against rookie sensation Karl-Anthony Towns.
