Forward Skal Labissiere will miss a second consecutive game with a left shoulder strain when the Kings play the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday at Smoothie King Center.

Guard Malachi Richardson (sprained left ankle) is also missing his second game in a row.

Another King sitting out a second straight game is Willie Cauley-Stein (right knee bone bruise, left foot strain). He was ruled out for at least two games Friday.

The three players join Frank Mason III (heel), who has been out since getting hurt Dec. 31 and wasn’t expected to play in January.

Labissiere is averaging 7.9 points and 4.5 rebounds this season. Richardson is averaging 3.5 points and 1.3 rebounds.

Guard De’Aaron Fox (bruised right calf) and guard Garrett Temple (sprained right ankle) are probable.
