DeMarcus Cousins Out With Viral Meningitis

by December 08, 2014

Last week, the Sacramento Kings said that center DeMarcus Cousins was out with a viral infection.

Sunday, the team provided more details on the ailing big man.

Cousins has viral meningitis, and there’s no timetable for his return to action.

From the press release:

Cousins’ symptoms are stable and a full recovery is expected, however the Kings medical staff recommends further rest before demands of an NBA schedule can be tolerated. He will continue to be monitored daily, with basketball-related activities expected to resume when his health allows.


Cousins is not expected to be in uniform for this week’s contests. Further updates on his playing status will be issued when they become available.
