Former Kings G Isaiah Thomas on Kings C DeMarcus Cousins: "I think if he ran the floor a little more, he would make the game a lot easier for him."
A parting shot or something meant as a compliment? You be the judge. Hard to say what kind of effect this statement has because it comes down to what Cousins thinks and whether or not it's even a true statement. If it is true and Cousins disagrees, then it's just a war of words. If it's true and he takes it as constructive criticism, then it helps. If it's not true and Cousins dismisses the statement then we're right back here at square one. And if it's not true and Cousins still listens to him, then it makes him a worse player. Thanks for your help Isaiah. Much appreciated.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Mike Scott will not play Saturday.
Scott has shed his walking boot, but is still a couple of practices away from returning to the floor in a game. His sprained left big toe, which he suffered in a game on March 11 against the Nuggests, is still giving him trouble and he is probably a week or so away from joining the team on the court.

Paul George (leg) ruled out for Sunday.
He has not been cleared by the team for game action, so despite his desire to play again before the regular season is done, he will have to miss some more action. Consider him day-to-day for now. Until he returns to action, he is worthless for fantasy purposes. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
