The Kings could have as few two projected starters when they play at the Golden State Warriors Saturday.
Tyreke Evans (sprained left foot) practiced Friday and is probable. That is the most encouraging news on the injury front.
DeMarcus Cousins (sprained right ankle) is questionable. John Salmons (right quad contusion) is doubtful and Chuck Hayes is out while awaiting results on further tests on his heart after an abnormality showed up on a test.
That leaves Evans and Marcus Thornton as the two projected starters likely to be on the court to start the game.
Cousins, Hayes and Salmons comprise what is the projected starting frontcourt. Cousins was able to do some work on the court. Salmons will probably stay in Sacramento and receive more treatment on his thigh, said Kings coach Paul Westphal.
If Cousins plays, he will start with either J.J. Hickson or Jason Thompson in the frontcourt. If Cousins is out, Hickson and Thompson will start.
Without Salmons, the perimeter players will be Evans, Thornton and Jimmer Fredette.
