DeMarcus Cousins will play tonight against the Bulls

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Kings big man has missed six games in a row tonight but is expected to play tonight. Sacramento has yet to win without Cousins.

Despite being labeled as "day-to-day" after suffering a sprained ankle against the Houston Rockets on January 22nd, Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has had to miss six games recovering.  The timing couldn't be better as the Kings are trying to end a season-high 7 game losing streak which started in the game he got injured.

Cousins himself announced the news today with this video on his Facebook page:

In Cousins' absence the Kings had been forced to rely heavily on a big man rotation of Aaron Gray, Jason Thompson, Quincy Acy and Carl Landry.  Gray will likely see the biggest decrease in minutes with Cousins back.

Cousins leads the Kings in Points, Rebounds, Steals and Blocks and as such his absence was sorely felt.

Also, Jimmer Fredette, who missed Saturday's game against the San Antonio Spurs due to a stomach illness, has recovered and will be available tonight, per James Ham.
