Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins suffered a right ankle sprain Sunday vs. Golden State that forced him to miss Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City.
When Cousins was asked if he would play in Friday's contest against the Los Angeles Lakers, he jokingly responded (via News10's Sean Cunningham), "probably not, think I'll be out rest of the season and I can get a comeback commercial."
