Description: Kings PF/C DeMarcus Cousins will not play in Tuesday's game against Minnesota.
Insight: Cousins is dealing with a sore foot and have a back-to-back set scheduled. He's posted 24 points and 20 or more rebounds in two of the last three games since missing a contest with Memphis. There are now a lot of shot opportunities available for the remainder of the team as Cousins averages over 18 shots per night.

Description: Kings PF/C DeMarcus Cousins recorded a triple-double with six blocks on Wednesday versus the Rockets.
Insight: Cousins and the Kings nearly spoiled James Harden's career-high 51 points, but the Rockets did win, 115-111. Cousins finished with 24 points, 21 rebounds, 10 assists, six blocks and three steals. He must continue to be in lineups as long as he is playing.
 
4/1/2015 7:05:00 PM
Description: Kings PF/C DeMarcus Cousins will play on Wednesday versus the Rockets according to ESPN.
Insight: This is a bit surprising because coach George Karl talked about resting Cousins for road games the rest of the way. No matter, though, because Cousins has to be in lineups as long as he is playing.
 
3/30/2015 3:14:00 PM
Description: Kings PF/C DeMarcus Cousins will not play Monday night against Memphis.
Insight: Cousins has been a fantasy stud all season (24.1 ppg, 12.4 rpg, 3.3 apg, 1.5 apg, 1.7 bpg) and this is a disaster for fantasy owners. It isn't a specific injury, just rest, and could happen more times over the finals weeks of the season.
 
3/27/2015 10:14:00 PM
Description: Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins had a huge game during Friday's loss to the Pelicans.
Insight: He had 39 points, 19 boards, two assists, one steal, three blocks, and two turnovers, while shooting 16-of-28 from the field and 7-of-12 from the line. Cousins desperately needs some help around him.
 
3/25/2015 9:12:00 AM
Description: Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins had a monster game with 33 points and 17 rebounds in the, 107-106, victory over the 76ers on Tuesday.
Insight: Cousins was just 8-for-27 from the field, but he did hit 17-of-19 at the foul line. He also had four blocks, four steals and three assists. Cousins is going to continue to see more DNP down the stretch, but he must be in the lineup when he plays.
 
3/22/2015 8:26:00 PM
Description: Fantasy owners were pleased to see Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins out on the floor and producing Sunday night.
Insight: Cousins had 20 points, shooting 54.5 percent. He also had seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and shot 8-for-8 at the line. Cousins will likely see more DNP down the stretch, but he needs to be in fantasy lineups when he plays.
 
3/22/2015 4:46:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins (calf) will play Sunday against Washington.
Insight: Cousins needs to be active in all lineups. Jason Thompson will head back to the bench.
 
3/20/2015 8:44:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will not play on Friday versus the Hornets.
Insight: Initially, James Ham of Cowbell Kingdom reported Cousins would play, but that is not the case now. At least we have some clarity on the situation.
 
3/20/2015 8:37:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has moved back to being a game-time decision according to Fox Sports 1.
Insight: We wrote a note about 15 minutes ago saying he was playing, but now Fox Sports 1 is reporting Cousins as a game-time decision again. Whether this is Cousins and the Kings changing their minds or a false report, this is quite confusing. Stay tuned for one further update.
 
3/20/2015 8:22:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will play on Friday versus the Hornets according to Fox Sports 1.
Insight: Cousins has been on fire lately, averaging 29.7 ppg in the last three games, so he should be in everyone's lineup.
 
3/18/2015 6:25:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is out on Wednesday versus the Clippers according to NBA.com.
Insight: That's really too bad because Cousins is averaging 29.7 ppg in the last three games. Cousins has played in most of the games this season, but it should surprise if he rests a lot down the stretch since the Kings are out of the playoffs.
 
3/16/2015 10:02:00 AM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has posted 69 points and 30 rebounds over the past two games and will face a Hawks team on Monday without starting center Al Horford.

3/13/2015 9:38:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins had an absurd game during Friday's loss against the 76ers.
Insight: We are not sure what was more impressive - the fact Cousins pulled down a career-high 24 rebounds and scored a season-high 39 points, or that he went 15-of-20 from the line and 12-of-24 from the field. Nevertheless, it was a dominant performance.
 
3/12/2015 3:18:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins did not practice with the team on Thursday.
Insight: He's had a sore ankle, so this may just be the team giving him extra time off, but the Kings play the Sixers on Friday and a lot of teams have been resting starters and still winning against Philadelphia. Check back close to tipoff on Friday to make sure he's in the lineup.
 
3/11/2015 9:38:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins posted a double-double on Wednesday night.

3/4/2015 10:57:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins registered a season-low three rebounds versus the Spurs on Wednesday.

3/3/2015 10:05:00 PM

Insight: He also went 5-of-10 from the field, and finished with 22 points, 10 boards, three assists, one 3-pointer, two steals, two blocks, and three embarrassing turnovers. Cousins had missed the two previous games with an ankle injury, but looked healthy on Tuesday.
