Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins limped off the court in Thursday's Team USA practice, but the MRI revealed no structural damage.
Insight: Team USA and Sacramento fans along with fantasy owners can relax.The 23-year-old was a fantasy stud, averaging 22.7 points, 11.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks in 71 games last season. He's also the best big man on Team USA and without him the team would be very small.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will be suspended for Wednesday's game against the Suns without pay for receiving his 16th technical foul of the season, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Cousins has averaged a monstrous 27.9 points, 12.3 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.4 blocks over his last eight games, but he let his temper get the better of him again on Sunday and he'll miss the season finale. That 23-year-old will finish with averages of 22.7 points, 11.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks in 71 games this season.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins notched 32 points, 12 boards, five assists, two blocks and a pair of steals Saturday in a loss to the Clippers.
Insight: Don't get too excited. The 32 points came on just 12-of-27 shooting (44.4 percent). Still, you have to respect Boogie's consistency. That was the 23-year-old's seventh consecutive double-double.
 
4/9/2014 9:27:00 AM
Description: Boogie Cousins paced the Kings with 24 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks Tuesday in a loss to OKC.
Insight: Cousins (22.3 ppg, 11.6 rpg) is pretty much a guaranteed double-double any time he steps on the court. He's certainly deserving of making the All-NBA team, though voters might pass over him because Sacramento hasn't had a good season (27-51, third-worst record in the Western Conference).
 
4/6/2014 8:55:00 PM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins exploded for 28 points, ten rebounds and two blocks Sunday in a loss to the Mavs.

Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins had 24 points and 14 rebounds in 30 minutes Tuesday after sitting out Monday.

Insight: Cousins missed Monday's game with knee tendinitis, but it was a precautionary absence. Derrick Williams had a big night with Cousins out (26 points, 11 boards) but will have a much smaller role with Cousins back.

3/17/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins unexpectedly missed Sunday's game with right knee tendinitis, but should return Tuesday.
Insight: Cousins' production -- 22.2 ppg, 11.7 rpg, 2.8 apg, 1.5 spg, 1.3 bpg -- is usually irreplaceable so hopefully he can return soon. Derrick Williams picked up extra playing time Sunday and made the most of it - 26 points, 11 rebounds.
 
3/16/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins will miss Sunday's game with right knee tendinitis, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.
Insight: Cousins' production -- 22.2 ppg, 11.7 rpg, 2.8 apg, 1.5 spg, 1.3 bpg -- is irreplaceable so hopefully he can return soon. Jason Thompson, Reggie Evans and Derrick Williams will pick up extra playing time in his absence.
 
3/16/2014 9:25:00 AM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins shredded the Bulls for 25 points, 14 rebounds and four steals Saturday at United Center.
Insight: Cousins has now logged four straight double-doubles. He leads all centers in steals per game this season. He's also the leading scorer among fantasy big men at 22.2 ppg.
 
3/12/2014 9:40:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins couldn't find his stroke Tuesday against Detroit (5-for-15) but he made up for it by earning 14 rebounds and six blocked shots.
Insight: It's comforting to know that even when Boogie isn't hitting shots, he can still be a productive fantasy contributor. He's fourth in the league in double-doubles this season (39).
 
3/9/2014 9:25:00 PM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins had everything working Sunday against Brooklyn.
Insight: His teammates didn't (the Kings lost by 15) but that's a different story. Boogie totaled 28 points and 20 rebounds though it would have been better without the six turnovers he committed. Cousins' streak of 20-point games is now at five in a row.
 
3/2/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins had a big game Saturday in his return from a one-game suspension.
Insight: Boogie went off for 21 points, 17 rebounds and three blocked shots, though it wasn't enough to beat Minnesota (108-97). Fantasy owners should be aware that Cousins is one technical away from another suspension. We'll see if he can keep his cool Monday against the Pelicans.
 
3/1/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins served his one-game suspension and should be back in Saturday's lineup.
Insight: It's a shame such a talented player (22.3 ppg, 11.5 rpg, 2.9 apg) can't control his emotions. This isn't the last time this is likely to happen.
 
2/27/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins has been suspended for a game and fined $20,000 for throwing a punch and then verbally abusing the referees. He'll miss Friday's game.
Insight: Cousins is a ticking timebomb and fantasy owners who selected him knew it. Now its time to pay the piper. It's a shame such a talented player (22.3 ppg, 11.5 rpg, 2.9 apg) can't control his emotions.
 
2/26/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins lost his temper again Tuesday in a loss to Houston.
Insight: Cousins' latest tirade included two technical fouls, giving him 15 for the season. If he picks up another, which is almost a certainty at this point, Cousins (16 points, six rebounds in 20 minutes) will be suspended for a game. The 23-year-old has now been ejected eight times in his four-year career.
 
2/23/2014 7:33:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will give it a go Sunday against Denver. SOURCE: Jason Jones, Sacramento Bee
Insight: Cousins had been a game-time decision because of a strained hip flexor. Even though he struggled Saturday against Boston (13 points and six turnovers before fouling out), Cousins is way too talented to leave on your bench.
