DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay are both on the Kings injury report, listed as questionable for Tuesday’s tilt against the Clippers in Sacramento.
Cousins is fighting a myriad of injuries but is on the report with a right calf strain, while Gay has missed two consecutive games with a left patellar tendon strain.
Cousins is averaging 23.7 points and 12.3 rebounds per game, ranking fifth and third, respectively in the NBA.
Despite missing 14 games due to illness and injury, the first time All-Star center also is second in the league with 41 double-doubles. Sacramento is 2-12 without the Kentucky product in the lineup.
Meanwhile, Gay sustained the knee injury during Sacramento’s 114-107 loss in Philadelphia to the Sixers on Friday in which he scored 24 points.
The UConn product averaged 24.9 points per night in seven of the eight games on Sacramento’s recent road trip, which concluded Saturday in Washington.
Overall on the season, Gay, in his ninth NBA season is averaging 20.6 points per game, ranking 13th in the NBA.
After Monday’s 110-103 loss to the Hawks, Sacramento is now 2-4 this campaign without the forward suited up.
Injuries including right achilles tendinitis (2), a left knee capsule sprain (1) and a sore left foot (1) kept Gay out of the lineup for four games prior to the latest knee injury.
The Kings (22-43) entertain the Clippers (42-25) Wednesday in the second game of a five-game home stand.
