DeMarcus Cousins will miss his sixth game of the season with a lower back strain tonight when the Kings play the Milwaukee Bucks at Bradley Center.
Cousins was injured during the second half of Monday’s loss at Charlotte and did not finish the game.
Kosta Koufos will start in Cousins’ place. He’ll be joined by Willie Cauley-Stein, Rudy Gay, Ben McLemore and Rajon Rondo in the starting lineup.
It is the second time the Kings have used that starting group and is 0-1, losing Nov. 3 to Memphis.
