DeMarcus Cousins picked up his 16th technical foul of the season during last night's loss to Chicago, which means he'll have to serve an automatic 1-game suspension.
Unless one of those technical fouls is rescinded, Cousins likely will have to sit out Wednesday's home game against the Boston Celtics.
The statement also noted the National Basketball Association fined Cousins $25,000 for an inappropriate gesture.
Cousins, who leads the league in technical fouls, collected two on Monday night.
Cousins finished with 18 points, 14 rebounds and five assists as Sacramento rallied from 27 points down to tie the game at 112-all with 30 seconds left to play.
Dwyane Wade turned 35 years old earlier this season and isn't as dynamic as he once was, but he can still deliver in clutch time when he's needed. His 26.92 player efficiency rating ranks second at the power forward position behind only Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans, per ESPN.com.

Kings general manager Vlade Divac downplayed any trade speculation Monday, though. He remains in the team's long-term plans, though.
"We're not trading DeMarcus", Divac said. Last night, we got the bad version of Cousins.
Ultimately, Cousins will find himself in a tough spot once he gets back from the one-game ban.
Players are suspended for one game after receiving 16 technical fouls during the regular season and an additional game for every two technicals after that.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Kenny Agostino scored his first goal in nearly three years, Carter Hutton had 26 saves and the St. Louis Blues beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-0 on Monday night. Cousins played his 466th game as a member of the Kings, tying him with former assistant coach Corliss Williamson for fifth on Sacramento's all-time list. The three-time All-Star continues to put up massive numbers as the alpha and omega of the Kings attack, but his inability to check his emotions and volatile relationships with the NBA's referees continue to get him into trouble.
