KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHOENIX: GUARDS: With Steve Nash gone, GORAN DRAGIC takes over at the point. He was a monster as a starter in Houston late last year, and he's familiar with Phoenix's system from his time there as Nash's backup . . . SHANNON BROWN is one of the league's better sixth men and could end up seeing close to starter minutes this year. Once just a raw athlete, he's made major strides as a shooter and ball-handler . . . KENDALL MARSHALL was a bit of a product of an absurdly talented supporting cast in college at UNC. He's got work to do to become an NBA-caliber starter, but he'll be capable enough as a backup point guard as a rookie . . . SEBASTIAN TELFAIR still can't hit an open jump shot, but will factor into the backcourt rotation. FORWARDS: LUIS SCOLA steps in as the starting four. While he's in his 30's and an underwhelming athlete, he's crafty and relentless . . . JARED DUDLEY will continue to be their main catch-and-shoot threat on the wing. It might take a while to develop an on-court chemistry with Dragic . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY has a chance to grab a starting spot. He rarely has his head on straight, but he can score . . . CHANNING FRYE, the sharp-shooting 7-footer, will likely miss the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart, but this condition is expected to completely heal . . . WESLEY JOHNSON gets a fresh start. He needs to start knocking down shots to land a rotation spot . . . MARKIEFF MORRIS showed flashes as a rookie, but has to make better decisions on the offensive end. He'll be a key on the second unit . . . Well-traveled P.J. TUCKER earned himself a roster spot with an impressive Summer League. CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT had a great year-and-a-half alongside Steve Nash, and he'll have to prove he can create in the low post a little more. But he's a skilled big man who should pair nicely with Luis Scola as a scorer and passer in the post . . . Injury-riddled JERMAINE O'NEAL is still a strong low-post defender and shot-blocker.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: MARCUS THORNTON is the only one guaranteed a consistent role on the perimeter . . . ISAIAH THOMAS was the story of the second half for the Kings. He can fill up the box score, but at 5-foot-9 (at best) he's too much of a defensive liability and not a point guard . . . AARON BROOKS is the most talented guard on this team. He's had attitude problems in the past, but he could, and should, lead this team . . . Now that he remained in Sacto, TYREKE EVANS will be playing off the ball at the three against his wishes . . . The Kings will keep on trying to unload JOHN SALMONS, who's not a useful NBA player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE should have a role off the bench, but his ball-handling is not where it has to be for an NBA point guard . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA's chance seems to have passed him by. FORWARDS: THOMAS ROBINSON should emerge as a starter early in his rookie year. He has his flaws on both ends of the floor, but he brings energy and doesn't need a lot of touches to get his points . . . Even if Robinson knocks him to the bench, JASON THOMPSON should play the five at times and see close to starter's minutes . . . JAMES JOHNSON should also play big minutes soon considering his ability to make positive contributions without a lot of touches . . . CHUCK HAYES should continue to play second-unit minutes as a glue guy . . . TRAVIS OUTLAW has regressed to the point that he's lucky to have a roster spot . . . TYLER HONEYCUTT has an intriguing skill set as a defensive-minded point forward, but he's likely ticketed for the D-League again. CENTERS: DeMARCUS COUSINS came on strong late last season. There's no doubt he has All-Star potential, but between his awful shot selection and occasional attitude problems, he just hasn't lived up to his potential. After Team USA passed on him this summer because of reported maturity problems, he might still not get it.

(UPDATES Gortat's status)

*Suns-Kings Preview* ====================

By JORDAN GARRETSON STATS Writer

Phoenix (21-40) at Sacramento (21-42), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns are already two of the worst teams in the Western Conference, but they could struggle even more as problems surround a key frontline player for each.

While it's unclear how long DeMarcus Cousins will be on the court for the Kings, the Suns play their first game after learning Marcin Gortat might not be back this season as they visit northern California on Friday night.

The Kings (21-42), at the bottom of the West and a game behind Phoenix (21-40), have lost nine of 11 and may have trouble slowing their skid if they can't figure out their issues with Cousins. The third-year center was averaging 18.5 points, 10.6 rebounds and 33.2 minutes during the New Year before getting his playing time cut over the past five games.

That stretch has seen Cousins average 9.8 points on 30.9 percent shooting and 7.8 boards, playing less than 24 minutes in four of those contests.

"You kind of expect anything here," Cousins said when asked if he was surprised about his minutes.

His body language also has been less than stellar, sometimes conveying disinterest. He was seen watching the in-house band instead of joining his team's huddle during a timeout in the second quarter of an 87-83 loss at Golden State on Wednesday. Cousins had five points on 2-of-10 shooting in less than 21 minutes, sitting the entire second and fourth quarters.

"At this stage of the season, sure, you'd love to have him on the floor playing well, but sometimes when you're struggling you've got to tip your hat and say, 'You know what, tonight's not my night,' and sometimes that happens," coach Keith Smart told the league's official website. "I went with a group that kept us in the game."

Cousins averaged 25.6 points in five career starts against Phoenix before two meetings this season, totaling 24 points on 8-of-28 shooting. Sacramento lost both by double digits and has dropped five straight in the series.

Cousins could have an easier time Friday with Gortat not on the floor. He left in the first quarter of Wednesday's 98-71 home loss to Toronto after stepping on another player's foot and crumpling to the floor.

X-rays after the game were negative, but an MRI taken Thursday revealed a midfoot sprain to his right foot. Gortat will be out at least three to four weeks, possibly ending his season.

Averaging 11.1 points and a team-best 8.5 rebounds, Gortat has started 138 straight games for the Suns. He didn't believe the injury was overly serious when he spoke to reporters after Wednesday's game.

"I don't know what happened," Gortat said. "I just heard a pop. I'll be able to play. ... Well, I say yeah but the doctors say no, I'm out for a few days, maybe weeks."

The injury further depletes a frontcourt already missing Jermaine O'Neal, who left the team to be with his 13-year-old daughter who is undergoing surgery to repair a leaking heart valve.

The Suns (21-40) committed a season-high 29 turnovers Wednesday and had a three-game winning streak snapped.
