Sacramento Kings fans got a good Halloween scare last night when DeMarcus Cousins left the court during the second quarter of the King’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers and did not return at halftime.

According to reports, Boogie suffered from a sore right Achilles and rather than risk further injury, the Kings decided to bench arguably their best player for the second half.

Boogie is currently listed as day-to-day. Injuries aren’t a new thing for Boogie: the big man battled ankle, leg and Achilles injuries last season, missing a total of 23 games while recovering.

Before sitting out the rest of the game, Cousins recorded 13 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes during the King’s first half at the Staples Center.

Meanwhile, another former Cat Rajon Rondo did his best to rally the King’s with a MIA Boogie by scoring 21 points and recording 8 assists for the game. This was the second solid performance for the King’s by Rondo, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to seal the win.

The King’s fell short against their rivals again for the second time in three games, with the Clippers edging out the Kings 114-109.

    “Arguably their best player”? Who would you argue is better or is his competition for the Kings’ best player?

    I hope it’s not serious for Boogie. Get better soon, big guy.
