The Kings will be without DeMarcus Cousins for a sixth straight game due to a sprained left ankle.

The Kings hope to have Cousins back next week. The Kings host Chicago on Monday and Toronto on Wednesday.

The Kings will also be without guard Jimmer Fredette (illness). Ray McCallum will backup Isaiah Thomas tonight.

*You can follow along with all the media tweeting about the game via The Bee's live chat.

Prediction time: The Kings are due for a win and are playing an injury-depleted Spurs team.

The Spurs still have Tim Duncan and Tony Parker. But that’s about it right now. If the Kings play with some energy for 48 minutes, they can steal a win.

Kings 106, Spurs 101

My record: 29-17
