Kings' Cousins listed as day to day with Achilles strain

An MRI Sunday on DeMarcus Cousins' right Achilles indicated a strain, and as a result, the Sacramento Kings are listing the center as day to day.

Cousins tweaked the Achilles during Saturday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, leaving in the second quarter and not returning. The six-year veteran is off to a typically strong start, averaging 22 points and 11 rebounds in three games.

Last year, the Alabama native went down in late November after contracting viral meningitis, a development which began a systematic derailing of the Kings' season. He ended up playing a career-low 59 games.

Sacramento plays next on Tuesday, when they kick off a back-to-back against the Memphis Grizzlies and Phoenix Suns.
