Kings' DeMarcus Cousins: Has shed 20 pounds this offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins has lost upwards of 20 pounds this offseason, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Cousins has reportedly spent the past two and a half months dedicating himself to hot yoga, an exercise regimen that involves practicing yoga in high temperatures. The big man's weight loss has been motivated by the upcoming Summer Olympics, in which Cousins is participating, but could prove beneficial in the NBA season next year if he can keep up the progress. The 6-11 forward averaged 26.9 points and 11.5 rebound in 2015-16.

Kings' DeMarcus Cousins: Will play for Team USA
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cousins will play for Team USA during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The bruising Cousins should fit in well with the physical style many international big men choose to embrace, but he'll also have an athleticism advantage over many of the other frontcourt players he encounters. Look for Cousins, DeAndre Jordan and Draymond Green to occupy most of the minutes at either power forward or center during the competition.

Kings' DeMarcus Cousins: Will not play in last two games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cousins will sit out the Kings' final two games of the season Monday against the Suns and Wednesday against the Rockets for rest, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento (KXTV) reports.

Coach George Karl suggested last weekend that Cousins would be held out of the team's season-ending two-game road trip, but it wasn't clear if that plan was still in the fold after Cousins ended up sitting out a home game last Thursday against the Timberwolves. After Cousins returned to action in Saturday's 114-112 win over the Thunder to produce 15 points (7-24 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, and a block before fouling out in 32 minutes, the team decided that it was best to shelve him for the rest of the way. In addition to prioritizing the big man's long-term health, the Kings likely wanted to eliminate the possibility of Cousins earning another technical foul, which would trigger a one-game suspension that might have potentially been enforced for the first game of 2016-17. With two years left on his contract, Cousins will be back with the Kings next season and should be ready to go at the start of training camp. Despite his moody ways and frequent clashing with Karl, Cousins still turned in the best season of his career in 2015-16, averaging 26.9 points, 11.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.4 blocks over 65 games. Look for Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos to take on heavy workloads in the frontcourt during the final two contests.

Kings' DeMarcus Cousins: Will sit out against the Timberwolves on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cousins will sit out Thursday's game against the Timberwolves for rest purposes, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Cousins has now played just one game in the last eight days after resting against the Nuggets last Saturday and serving a one-game suspension against the Heat last Friday. Coach George Karl said last weekend that Cousins would play in the Kings' final three home games before sitting out the final two road games of the season, but it appears he's decided to switch up his rest plan for the star big man. It's now anyone's guess whether or not Cousins will play at all before the season concludes, so his status remains worth tracking on a game-by-game basis. With Cousins out for at least Thursday's game, Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos will likely both be asked to assume big minutes up front.

Kings' DeMarcus Cousins: Returns from two-game absence with 30 points, nine boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeMarcus Cousins tallied 30 points (11-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-11 FT), nine rebounds, three blocks, two steals, and one assist over 38 minutes in Tuesday's 115-107 loss to the Blazers.

Cousins had missed the Sacramento Kings ' previous two games while serving a one-game suspension Friday against the Heat and resting Saturday against the Nuggets, but returned with his usual flair Tuesday. The moody big man was unable to stop himself from accruing his 17th technical foul of the season, however, and his next one will trigger another one-game suspension. Coach George Karl recently stated that he intends to hold Cousins out for rest in the team's season-ending two-game road trip, so assuming that plan holds, Cousins will face the Timberwolves on Thursday and the Thunder on Saturday before getting an early start on the offseason.
