Cousins (rest) will not play Monday against the Grizzlies, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Cousins has hinted toward needing a rest and apparently Monday's game against the bruising combo of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph will allow such a night-off to be given. With Cousins out, Jason Thompson could start at center for the Kings on Monday, with Reggie Evans being another option for coach George Karl. Expect Cousins to return to the lineup Wednesday versus Houston.

Cousins could be rested a couple games down the final stretch of the NBA season, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Cousins had expressed a desire to get a few nights off previously, but head coach George Karl was not particularly accommodating. Karl says he now wants to experiment with some different lineups, but it's more likely that the Kings would like to experiment with a higher draft pick. Fantasy owners will have to check Cousins' status before every game he plays for the rest of the way since his rest days may be unpredictable.
