Kings' Cousins sits out vs. Suns with stomach flu

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is sitting out against the Phoenix Suns with the stomach flu.

The Kings listed Cousins as out Friday night because of gastroenteritis. Interim coach Tyrone Corbin says the stomach bug is unrelated to the illness that sidelined Cousins for nearly a month.

Cousins sat out 10 games with viral meningitis before playing the past three games. He's averaging 23.9 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists this season.

The Kings also say Ramon Sessions will not play because of a strained lower back and Ryan Hollins is out for a personal reason.
