DeMarcus Cousins listed as Probable against Dallas

The Kings big man is expected to return tonight.

Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins has been upgraded to probable on the team's injury report, and is expected to return to action in Monday's matchup against the Dallas Mavericks.

Cousins has missed the Kings' last three games with a lower back injury. The Kings have struggled without Cousins this season, going 1-7 in games he's missed.

Hopefully Cousins' back is fully healed and the Kings will get Boogie at 100%. It's possible, perhaps even probable, that Cousins is coming back as quick as possible, even if he's not 100% healthy. We may see Boogie limited in terms of his effectiveness, or his minutes. Nonetheless, this is good news, as the Kings have been atrocious without their All-Star big man.
