SACRAMENTO–

DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings’ beleaguered center, has been reinstated, the team announced Monday morning.

Cousins was suspended indefinitely on Saturday for “unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team,” team GM Geoff Petrie wrote in a statement.

The suspension came after an explicative-laden rant directed to Kings coach Keith Smart.

This was Cousins’ third suspension this year. He is already said to be back practicing with the team Monday, although Coach Smart has not said if Cousins will be available for the Kings’ next game at Portland come Wednesday.
