Kings center Willie Cauley-Stein is doubtful for Saturday’s game against the Utah Jazz at Golden 1 Center with a lower back strain.

Cauley-Stein missed three games in December with the same injury after leaving Sacramento’s Dec. 2 loss at Milwaukee after playing just nine minutes.

The third-year big man is averaging 12.6 points and 6.9 rebounds. His scoring ranks third on the team and his rebounds are second.
