Kosta Koufos hit 5-of-5 shots for 12 points and two rebounds in 16 minutes on Wednesday against the Wizards, but both he and Willie Cauley-Stein are looking at bigger roles over the next 1-2 games.
That’s because DeMarcus Cousins is probably getting suspended for Friday’s game and he has already said he would take Saturday’s game off. So in Koufos’ case that means he has 1-2 games worth of utility and maybe beyond depending on if the Kings and Cousins decide to go for more games off. Cauley-Stein played just 23 minutes and put up six points, five rebounds, one steal and one block tonight, which went unnoticed because the Kings won, but it’s still pretty ridiculous since once again he was very good and still gets limited by George Karl. Either way, he’s a must-start guy going forward.
