Without DeMarcus Cousins, the Sacramento Kings have yet to win a game this season. The All-Star big man has already missed five games this season -- all losses for Sacramento. They won't have Cousins on Wednesday night against the Bucks due to a lower back strain.
Cousins suffered the injury on Monday night against the Charlotte Hornets, leaving the game in the fourth quarter. Without Cousins, the Kings gave up a 17-point lead and lost to the Hornets in overtime.
Cousins is averaging a career-high 27.9 points, 11.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.5 blocks this season, and is without a doubt crucial for the Kings. The good news for Sacramento is that Cousins' back injury is a minor one and he could be available to play by Friday against the Minnesota Timberwovles.
