Coach Michael Malone said DeMarcus Cousins (hip) moved well in practice today. He will practice again tomorrow and is expected to be ready to go against Boston.
The Kings do not play Boston until Saturday, so Cousins has a couple more days to rest up and as long as he does not suffer any setbacks Friday I would bank on him playing.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
