The second technical foul called on DeMarcus Cousins on Feb. 9 against the Dallas Mavericks at Arco Arena has been rescinded by the NBA. Cousins was ejected with 47.8 seconds left to play after being called for a double technical with Mavericks center Tyson Chandler. Chandler's technical foul also was rescinded. The Kings trailed 100-98 when Cousins was ejected and ended up losing 102-100. "Everybody knew it was a bogus call," Cousins said. "I really couldn't say anything, just had to wait until it played out." That gives Cousins seven technical fouls this season. That's the most among rookies and leads the Kings. A player is fined $2,000 for his first five technicals. The amount goes up to $3,000 on technical fouls six through 10. An ejection is $2,000. Players are suspended one game when they reach their 16th technical foul and suspended another game each time they are assessed two more. Evans questionable for Rookie- Sophomore game - With Tyreke Evans bothered again by plantar fasciitis and possibly out for tonight's game at Dallas, there's no way of knowing if he will participate in Friday's Rookie-Sophomore game as part of All-Star Weekend at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Evans led the Rookies to a victory last year in Dallas and was named the game's MVP. "I'll just let that fall in place when that happens," Evans said. "If I feel good enough to play when I get down there, then I'll play." Kings coach Paul Westphal said the team wouldn't tell Evans not to play.
