Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins may not have to serve the length of the two-game suspension that was handed down to him by the NBA on Nov. 10. According to Ailene Voisin of The Sacaremnto Bee, the NBA Players Association is appealing his case to the league to make the point that Cousins' penalty is too severe.

Following the Kings' loss to the San Antonio Spurs last week, Cousins reportedly confronted TV analyst and former Spurs player Sean Elliott near the locker room of the Kings' new Sleep Train Arena in what the league said was a "hostile manner." Cousins was reportedly upset with comments Elliott had made on TV about him.

But time is not on Cousins' side; he already sat out his first game on Sunday in Los Angeles against the Lakers. His agent, John Greig, reportedly said there will be more news today on the matter as he continues to appeal the suspension.

The Kings are back in Sacramento tonight for a game against the Portland Trailblazers.
