Sacramento Kings News: Injuries forcing Tyrone Corbin to shuffle the bench

The Sacramento Kings have been injury-riddled all season long, and lately it's forced coach Tyrone Corbin to constantly shift his rotation in order to get the desired effect.

“We’re mixing a lot of pieces,” Corbin said, via the Sacramento Bee. “We want to make sure we’re not losing a lot.”

That was on display on Friday night against the Denver Nuggets, when Rudy Gay and Darren Collison played the entire first quarter and DeMarcus Cousins got some needed rest to make sure he was fresh to play with the second unit.

“We’re trying to mix the guys in and keep some guys on the floor with different combinations of guys,” Corbin said. “So as we grow that, we want to make sure we’re not losing momentum and actually increasing some advantage when the second group is in the ballgame.”

With Ramon Sessions having missed the last eight games with a back strain and Omar Casspi having missed four games in a row with a left knee bone bruise, Corbin will have to continue to mix and match until further notice.
