DeMarcus Cousins returns to practice

Kings center DeMarcus Cousins returned to practice Thursday.

Cousins missed Wednesday’s game against Golden State with a strained left hip flexor.

“(Cousins) moved very well,” said Kings coach Michael Malone. “Obviously he’ll practice tomorrow and we expect him to be ready to go for the game against Boston (Saturday).”

Cousins was injured last Wednesday in New York i the Kings’ win over the Knicks.

*Malone said Reggie Evans had already arrived in Sacramento and had taken his physical. Jason Terry is due in town Friday for his physical.

Both players were acquired Wednesday in a trade with Brooklyn for Marcus Thornton.
