Kosta Koufos (rest), Arron Afflalo (personal), Anthony Tolliver (rest) and Ty Lawson (rest) are all out on Friday against the Pelicans.
This will be Koufos’ fourth rest day in the last six games as the Kings are trying to give Georgios Papagiannis and Skal Labissiere an extended look. Both players have had strong games but being as they are rookies, it has not been consistent. Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Ben McLemore all benefit from Tolliver and Afflalo being out, while Darren Collison and Langston Galloway will split Lawson’s minutes.
