The Sacramento Kings lost to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday by the score of 101-92. The loss dropped the Kings to 18-36, tied for last place with the Los Angeles Lakers in the Pacific Division. The Kings once again played without DeMarcus Cousins, who injured his hip on February 12. The good news is that Cousins should be ready to play in tonight's game.

 According to the official Twitter feed of the Sacramento Kings,

The Kings went without a true center against the Warriors, starting forwards Carl Landry, Jason Thompson and Rudy Gay up front. The three combined for 31 points and 19 rebounds, in 85 minutes. Cousins practiced and appears he'll be able to play without restrictions. If Cousins is limited against the Celtics, expect the other three forwards to pick up additional minutes. The Kings need Cousins in the lineup and are 0-8 without him this season.

Cousins, the fourth-year center out of Kentucky, is averaging 22.5 points and 11.7 rebounds per game.  His scoring average, rebound average and field goal percentage are all career highs.  Cousins has started 244 of  his 266 career games and is averaging 17.4 points and 10.1 rebounds per game.
