DeMarcus Cousins scored a season-high 39 points in 32 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with 11 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and five turnovers during a 135-129 overtime victory.
He made 14-of-27 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line for a ridiculous usage rate of 50.5 tonight. Cousins raised his season usage to 34.0 and only trails Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade in that category. Advanced stats don't need to tell you that Boogie is the best starting center in fantasy and hopefully he is done with illnesses. Dec 28 - 1:39 AM

Date:

Demarcus Cousins (illness) will play on Saturday vs. the Knicks.

This is fantastic news, as Cousins is going to absolutely feast on Cold Aldrich. Get Cousins in all lineups and don't think twice about it.
Dec 27 - 9:09 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is probable to play against the Knicks on Saturday.

He missed Friday due to a stomach bug and it sounds like he's all better. Of course, multiple players have been probable with an illness and missed a game, so Cousins isn't a lock to play. Cousins returning would basically take away shots from the entire team, but the Kings should be more effective as a whole.
Dec 27 - 4:03 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

Ouch. Cousins has been ill more often than any player this season and his stomach bug will keep him out tonight. The Kings play again on Saturday, so Cousins should be considered questionable for that one. Expect Reggie Evans, Derrick Williams and Jason Thompson to get more run.
Dec 26 - 7:53 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (stomach illness) is questionable to play against the Suns on Friday.

This is not the same thing as his viral meningitis, so there is a chance he could miss this one. Cousins doesn't usually miss games when it's up to him and he actually refused a minutes limit in his first game back this month. Still, his fantasy owners will have to check back. Ryan Hollins is out, so Reggie Evans and Jason Thompson are a little safer for owners in very deep leagues.

DeMarcus Cousins is starting against the Warriors on Monday.

There was no doubt despite him being listed as probable. Cousins should go off tonight.
Dec 22 - 10:16 PM

DeMarcus Cousins, Omri Casspi, Reggie Evans and Ramon Sessions are all probable to play against the Warriors on Monday.

It would be an absolute shock to see Cousins miss this game. He has already turned down a minutes cap since his return to the lineup and he has been fantastic, averaging 28.0 points, 12.5 boards, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals in 35.0 minutes per game. Start him, obviously.
Dec 22 - 4:41 PM

DeMarcus Cousins dominated the Lakers on Sunday, piling up 29 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks with two turnovers in 37 minutes.

His weeks-long struggle with viral meningitis hasn't been evident since his return to action on Thursday, and tonight's line was a reminder of DMC's first-round fantasy value. The Kings recently fired coach Mike Malone, installing interim coach Ty Corbin in his stead, and they're involved in nearly every high-profile trade rumor in the NBA, but none of those distractions have detracted from Cousins' fantasy value.
Dec 21 - 11:08 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is probable to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

It would be a shock to see him sit out based on how terrific he looked in his return on Thursday. Cousins refused to take a minutes limit and played 33 minutes, so he'll probably be around 35-37. He's going to have a late supper and eat big time. Start him.
Dec 20 - 9:57 PM

DeMarcus Cousins said that there was no way he was going to accept the limited minutes, and ended up playing the entire fourth quarter of Thursday's game vs. the Bucks.

Cousins added that he'll be fine, so it appears owners can get back to plugging him into their lineups without hesitation every time he's active. He finished Thursday's game with a standard 27-point, 11-rebound Boogie outing, while playing 33 minutes.
Dec 19 - 8:26 AM

DeMarcus Cousins returned to action during a 108-107 loss to the Bucks on Thursday, scoring 27 points with 11 rebounds, five assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

Well, so much for the minutes cap. Cousins was outstanding on the offensive end, making 8-of-12 from the field and 11-of-13 from the line. He wasn't thrilled about the firing of coach Mike Malone and tonight he had a long talk with new coach Ty Corbin. As long as he's avoiding ejections, Cousins is going to be one of the best big men in fantasy.
Dec 19 - 1:09 AM

DeMarcus Cousins will start against the Bucks on Thursday with a minutes limit.

He's been out since November and his conditioning probably is not up to speed just yet. Cousins is one of the best offensive big men in the NBA while he's pulling down 12.6 boards and adding 1.5 blocks per game. Even with 20 minutes tonight, his owners should still have him in the lineup.
Dec 18 - 8:23 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is being listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. the Bucks.

Cousins' return would send Reggie Evans back to the bench, and Jason Thompson's value would take a hit. All signs are pointing towards Cousins giving it a go on Thursday, and he's obviously a must-start option when in uniform. Stay tuned for an official update as we draw closer to tip-off.

Dec 18 - 3:56 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) practiced on Wednesday and plans to play against the Bucks on Thursday.

The Kings will likely make a decision following shootaround on Thursday. Cousins has been out for over three weeks with viral meningitis and the Kings could limit him in his first game back, especially since his conditioning is not likely where it should be. His owners will want to check back tomorrow.
Dec 17 - 4:26 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (viral meningitis) could play on Thursday against the Bucks, but his minutes would be limited.

Cousins is in the middle of a storm right now and it will be extremely interesting to watch how he reacts as chess pieces appear to be moving wildly around him without his input. To his credit, he has taken the high road while expressing his displeasure with the situation, and if he keeps his head down and plays hard he'll probably come out of this situation smelling better than most.
