Sam Amick, who covers the NBA for USA TODAY Sports, tweeted the following on Cousins. added that Cousins has been sick since Friday morning and underwent some tests yesterday, but he status is still iffy for tonight's game.  Should Cousins be unable to play, expect Reggie Evans, who had 17 points and 20 rebounds in 35 minutes against the Grizzlies, to continue to see extended time on the court.

Cousins, in his fifth NBA season out of Kentucky, is averaging 23.5 points, 12.6 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots per game this season. In 306 career NBA games, all with the Kings, Cousins have averages of 18.1 points and 10.4 rebounds per game.
