Late news from yesterday- Kings.com’s Nate Rose is reporting that starting power forward Jason Thompson is a no-go tonight against the Boston Celtics.  Veteran Samuel Dalembert, who has had tremendous success over the last few games, will start in Thompson’s place.

Before the injury to Thompson, Coach Paul Westphal had started the line-up of Tyreke Evans, Beno Udrih, Omri Casspi, Jason Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins five consecutive games.  That stretch is the longest that any one group has started together the entire season.
