Kings Injury Update: DeMarcus Cousins suffers knee injury at Team USA practice, will have precautionary MRI

The Sacramento Kings are approaching training camp for the 2014-2015 season coming off a dismal 28-54 record, 29 games out in the Pacific Division. One bright spot was the play of fourth-year center DeMarcus Cousins, who lead the team in scoring, rebounding, blocked shots and steals per game. But it appears that a knee injury suffered at Team USA will sideline the Kings' star.
