Kings All-Star DeMarcus Cousins Sprains Ankle; X-Rays Negative (Video)

DeMarcus Cousins gave Sacramento Kings fans a scare Saturday night.

The All-Star center had to be helped off the court after he suffered a leg injury during the fourth quarter of the Kings’ 121-117 loss to the Grizzles in Memphis. The injury occurred when Grizzles center Marc Gasol fell on Cousins’ left leg while diving for the ball.

The Kings reportedly received some good news in regards to Cousins’ injury following the loss. Cousins’ X-rays came back negative, and his only injury was a left ankle sprain, according to The Sacramento Bee’s Jason Jones. The Kings confirmed the injury and said Cousins is day to day.

Cousins scored 17 points and had 14 rebounds before leaving the game.
