Koufos will be rested for the Kings' season finale Wednesday against the Clippers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Koufos will rest for the seventh consecutive game to conclude the season, and he'll be joined on the sideline by Darren Collison (migraine), Ty Lawson (rest). Garrett Temple (rest). and Anthony Tolliver (personal), leaving the Kings rather shorthanded. Expect Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis to again see extended minutes in Koufos' absence.
Koufos will not play during Tuesday's tilt against the Suns for rest purposes, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. Koufos will rest for a seventh straight game as coach Dave Joerger tries to get a better look at some of his younger players. As a result of Koufos' absence, expect Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis to see extended run, per usual.
Koufos has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rockets for rest, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The Kings are resting a slew of players Sunday, including Koufos, Arron Afflalo, Darren Collison and Tyreke Evans. Koufos' absence in particular should open up another start for Skal Labissiere in the frontcourt, with Georgios Papgiannis also likely picking up 20-plus minutes off the bench.
Koufos won't play in Friday's game against the Lakers for rest purposes, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento (KXTV) reports. Koufos will be on the bench for the fifth straight game for rest-related reasons, and it seems likely that we've seen the last of him this season. With the Kings eager to find more playing time for their younger bigs, Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis, there simply isn't room left over in the rotation for the 28-year-old Koufos.
Koufos will sit out Tuesday game against the Mavericks for rest purposes, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. Koufos will sit out his fourth straight game for rest purposes, and only two of those contests were part of a back-to-back scenario, so it appears the Kings could be leaning toward shutting the veteran center down for the season. If that's the case, Willie Cauley-Stein should be in store for around 30 minute per game as the starting center, while rookie Georgios Papagiannis remains a fixture in the rotation as Cauley-Stein's primary backup.
