Kings F Thompson to miss 3 games

The Sacramento Kings say forward Jason Thompson will miss the

next three games after having stitches put into his injured right

ring finger.

Thompson hurt himself in Friday’s loss to Oklahoma City and the

team announced Saturday that he would be sidelined. Thompson is

averaging 7.6 points and 5.8 rebounds.

The Kings also said big man DeMarcus Cousins did not practice

Saturday with a sore right ankle and wrist. He is questionable for

Sunday’s home game against Houston.
