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.
