The Sacramento Kings will once again be without Isaiah Cousins and George Papagiannis for Sunday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Houston Rockets. Cousins is suffering from a strained groin, while Papagiannis is dealing with a sore hamstring.

The Kings desperately need help at point guard for the Summer League roster. Early reports from minicamp suggested that Cousins would provide leadership and talent for the squad, but with him out the Kings had to resort to playing Skal Labissiere at point for stretches of Friday's blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors.
Sunday's game should have a steadier hand at the helm, as the Kings have added David Stockton to the roster.

Stockton spent last season with the Reno Bighorns, and appeared in limited minutes in three games for the Kings last year.
