The Sacramento Kings reinstated center DeMarcus Cousins, effective immediately. Cousins practiced with the team in Sacramento today.

Cousins, currently in his third NBA season, is averaging a team-high 16.6 points (.414 FGs, .200 3FGs, .769 FTs), 9.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.35 steals per game through 23 contests.

The 22-year old was suspended indefinitely Saturday morning following a verbal altercation with Keith Smart during the Kings' loss to the Clippers Friday night.

Cousins did not play in the Kings' 108-96 win over the Trail Blazers on Sunday.

The Kings are back in action Wednesday night in Portland.
