The Kings will be without center DeMarcus Cousins and point guard Darren Collison for tonight’s game against the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs at Sleep Train Arena.

Cousins, who missed 10 games earlier this season due to viral meningitis, sprained his left ankle in Wednesday’s 102-90 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Kings’ injury report also lists a left hip contusion. Reggie Evans is expected to take Cousins place in the starting lineup.

Collison, who hasn’t played since Feb. 5, is expected to have surgery next week for his right hip flexor strain and could miss the rest of the season. Ray McCallum will start at point guard for the fourth consecutive game.
