In the eyes of the NBA, a flagrant foul 2 and ejection were enough discipline for Kings center DeMarcus Cousins.

Cousins was not suspended for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls. He was thrown out of Sunday's loss to Milwaukee for landing an elbow to the back of Milwaukee forward Mike Dunleavy's head shortly after being called for a technical foul in the third quarter.

Kings coach Keith Smart received the news in a conversation with Stu Jackson, the NBA executive vice president of basketball operations.

"It wasn't anything that warranted a suspension or anything like that, so he's cleared," Smart said.

Cousins still missed Wednesday's game because of a left quadriceps contusion suffered in a collision with Dunleavy, who was trying to box him out. The maneuver preceded the technical foul, flagrant foul and ejection.

Cousins was listed as day-to-day. The Kings' next game is on the road Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Smart said he was "not shocked" that Cousins didn't receive his third suspension from the league.
