According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, Willie Cauley-Stein will not travel with the team for their next two games in Cleveland and New Orleans:

Cauley-Stein had been playing well enough to earn a spot in the starting lineup during the team’s last game in Milwaukee, so there will be plenty of minutes available with him sitting out for the next two games. Sacramento will likely use some combination of Kosta Koufos, JaKarr Sampson, Georgios Papagiannis and Zach Randolph to fill in the extra minutes until Cauley-Stein can return.
