DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) is expected to play against the Cavs on Friday.
He is listed as questionable due to an ankle tweak from Wednesday, but there are multiple reports of Cousins being ready to go in a favorable matchup. Cousins was also named to the All-Star Team today, so that's a little extra incentive. If he is active, he'll likely feast. Jan 30 - 2:46 PM

DeMarcus Cousins has been announced as Kobe Bryant's replacement for the All-Star game.

Someone was going to get snubbed in the West, and while Cousins is certainly deserving of his All-Star distinction, Damian Lillard is likely livid. Cousins probably feels a bit relieved to make the squad, but he still likely feels a bit disrespected only making it on the account of Bryant being injured. Both Cousins and Lillard figure to be quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues.

DeMarcus Cousins (left ankle) is questionable to play against the Cavs on Friday.

This is interesting because Cousins missed time because of a right ankle sprain earlier this month. He did tweak his left ankle on Wednesday and did play through it, but it's possible he sits this one out. Although, one would think Boogie would want to suit up after being snubbed from the All-Star team.
Jan 29 - 8:54 PM

DeMarcus Cousins hit just 5-of-10 shots and committed nine turnovers on his way to 13 points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

If your league (or DFS) subtracts for turnovers, this was a rough one, but in standard leagues, he still came through with a decent stat line, despite a lack of points and boards. After Monday's postponement and tonight's poor outing, Cousins' owners are probably going to take a loss this week.
Jan 28 - 11:46 PM

Monday's game between the Knicks and Kings has been postponed, and it will be made up on March 3.

With the pending blizzard threatening New York and the surrounding areas, the league will play it safe. It's the right call. Be sure your daily lineups don't include any Knicks or Kings on Monday night.
Jan 26 - 10:34 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points on 9-of-19 shooting (10-of-11 FTs) with 11 rebounds, two assists and three steals in Friday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

Cousins is keeping things together so far and the finger pointing inside the walls hasn't been directed at him. Yet. Unless he gets fed up with management, he's going to destroy the opposition.
Jan 24 - 5:00 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points with 14 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 41 minutes against the Nets during a 103-100 loss on Wednesday.

The Kings did not get any help from their bench with just 18 points. As for Cousins, he has double-doubles in eight straight games and came into tonight with 2015 averages of 23.6 points, 13.6 boards, 4.5 assists, 2.3 blocks and 1.8 steals. Even with his awful 5.6 turnovers per game in that span, he's still one of the best centers in fantasy.
Jan 22 - 1:09 AM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle), Rudy Gay (knee) and Omri Casspi (eye) are all listed as probable for Wednesday's home game vs. the Nets.

All three guys played on Monday and we'll leave them off the injury report unless a pessimistic update surfaces after shootaround. Cousins is averaging multiple career highs this season, including points (23.9), rebounds (12.6), assists (3.2) and blocks (1.7), yet he's currently trailing guys like Tim Duncan, LaMarcus Aldridge and Dwight Howard in fan-based All-Star voting.
Jan 20 - 9:43 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) returned to action in Monday's loss to the Blazers, scoring 22 points on 7-of-17 shooting (8-of-12 FTs) with 19 rebounds, one assist and a season-high tying four blocks in 38 minutes.

Cousins is on a big push to make the All Star team and he should be even more beastly until he either gets the nod or doesn't. Of course, it would be insane if he doesn't make the All Star team because he's competing for an All-NBA First Team slot if voters could be trusted, but that's never a sure thing when it comes to All Star nods and postseason awards. He also got fouled out by another vicious flop tonight, as Thomas Robinson was hit by a sniper on two different occasions.
Jan 20 - 3:04 AM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) and Rudy Gay (knee) are listed in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Blazers.

Cousins had to sit out on Saturday against the Clippers, but this news confirms that his ankle issue wasn't a big concern and his owners can comfortably activate him in all lineups. We will let you know how his ankle holds up after the game. This move also sends Ryan Hollins to the bench, meaning he can be cut just about everywhere.
Jan 19 - 9:53 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) and Rudy Gay (knee) have been upgraded to probable for Monday's game against the Blazers.

Cousins wasn't able to play on Saturday against the Clippers, but his ankle injury was never thought to be serious and he should be fine for Monday's contest. Owners will still want to check back prior to tip-off before plugging him into lineups, while Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams will both benefit if Cousins is held out. Stay tuned.
Jan 19 - 5:24 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) and Rudy Gay (knee) are both questionable for Monday's game against the Blazers.

Cousins did not suit up on Saturday after being hit with the questionable tag, but Gay made a surprise appearance off the bench. Owners will have to wait on further updates for both, but be prepared to have contingency plans for each. If both sit, Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams would be the primary fantasy beneficiaries, with Darren Collison also asked to carry a heavier load.

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Saturday.

The Kings are in deep trouble tonight against Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. They played their worst basketball without Cousins and it basically got coach Mike Malone fired. While Boogie is out, it'll be Jason Thompson, Derrick Williams, Ryan Hollins and Reggie Evans picking up the slack.
Jan 17 - 8:21 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle) is listed as questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

He had a limp on Friday night throughout the game and it was apparently because of this ankle issue. Cousins has refused a minutes limit before, so he'll probably want to suit up for Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Of course, it's possible he'll sit, which would give Jason Thompson, Reggie Evans and Derrick Williams more playing time.
Jan 17 - 4:25 PM

DeMarcus Cousins was seen limping throughout Friday's loss to the Heat, but so far there have been no reports that he has any serious ailment.

Cousins finished the game with 17 points on 4-of-12 shooting, 11 rebounds, five assists, one steal and eight turnovers. He certainly wasn't himself and the situation in Sacramento is percolating underneath the surface, as the team continues to reel from the firing of Mike Malone. Owners will want to keep an eye out on the injury report.
