The Sacramento Kings squad took a hit when they lost star DeMarcus Cousins for the game after rolling his ankle against the Houston Rockets. The good news is that x-rays were negative and he was diagnosed with a moderate sprain.
DeMarcus Cousins rolled his left ankle and couldn’t stay in the game to shoot his free throws, so he will be out for the rest of the game.

Still, not what Kings fans were hoping for. He couldn’t put any weight on his left ankle and needed assistance leaving the court. The team will re-evaluate him most likely over the next few days to determine the extent and severity of the injury.
