Last night, Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins went down with an ankle injury and his status is currently unknown for Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
After last night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Cousins was asked about coming back to play on Friday and provided News10 Sports Reporter Sean Cunningham with this quote:
Asked DeMarcus Cousins about playing Friday, he joked "probably not, think I'll be out rest of the season & I can get a comeback commercial"

Some perceived that Cousins was taking a swipe at Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose but it appears that Boogie was just making a joke.
Here is what DeMarcus said on his official Twitter account about his comment being taken out of context:
Let me clear this up now! In no way shape or form was I taking a shot at drose! Stop trying to make a story!!!
