The Sacramento Kings (5-1) visit the Oklahoma City Thunder (1-5) Sunday, and have listed their two marquee players on the team’s injury report:
DeMarcus Cousins (sprained right thumb) - PROBABLE
Rudy Gay (virus) - QUESTIONABLE
Gay logged close to 48 minutes while battling flu-like symptoms last night but managed to drain the go-ahead jumper with 1:07 remaining in the second overtime in the Kings 114-112 win over the Phoenix Suns (3-3) at the US Airways Center on Friday.
Visibly drained in the Kings locker room after the game, Gay was coughing his way through a session with the media.
Cousins showed no signs of injury to his right thumb as he left the locker room without any ice or treatment, and it is unknown how the injury to his thumb was sustained.
The Kings are 5-1 for the first time since 1999-00 and are on a five game winning streak for the first time since the 2006-07 season.
Additionally, the Kings have won their first three road games of the season for the first time since the 1995-96 campaign.
The Thunder have been riddled with injuries including Kevin Durant (Jones fracture of right foot) and Russell Westbrook (fracture of the second metacarpal in his right hand).
Both have undergone surgery and are targeting a December return to the lineup.
