The NBA Players' Association is continuing its appeal on behalf of Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins even after he has served his suspension.

The league suspended Cousins two games for confronting San Antonio announcer Sean Elliott in a "hostile manner". The exchange followed the Spurs' 97-86 victory in Sacramento on Friday night.

Cousins sat out losses at the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday and at home against Portland on Tuesday. He can't get the games back but is hoping to recoup his pay for each game missed. He lost about $70,500 of his $3.9 million salary.
