Cousins will come off bench next two games, lineup will be re-evaluated after AS break. Westy says its not punishment.
Dalembert has been on a bit of a run lately, averaging 16 points and nine rebounds in 26 minutes over the last three games. In Cousins absence on Sunday, Dalembert punished the Suns, dropping 18 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks as the Kings won their third consecutive road game. According to Jones, Jason Thompson will again join Dalembert on the front line with Carl Landry and DeMarcus Cousins coming off the bench.
