SACRAMENTO -- The hits keep coming for the Sacramento Kings. DeMarcus Cousins is expected to return from injury in the next few days, but the team may have lost one of its most important weapons in the meantime.

Veteran guard Darren Collison missed Saturday night’s game with a left hamstring injury. From his courtside seat, he informed CSNBayArea.com that the injury required an MRI and the results were “not good."

Collison confirmed that he would be out several days at minimum while the team’s medical staff waits to see how his body responds to treatment.

The 28-year-old guard is averaging 15.8 points and 5.2 assists in 30.7 minutes a night. George Karl has praised Collison’s versatility throughout training camp and into the regular season, and even used him in the starting lineup against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.
