DeMarcus Cousins

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad), who was able to go through a full practice on Thursday, said he is feeling better but there is not a set game for his return as of yet.

    Cousins also mentioned that he was unsure what his role would be if/when he does return. With the Raptors and Bucks deadlocked at two games apiece, Cousins still has a week to get right before the start of the series. We will have a better timeline of his return after he and teammate Kevin Durant get re-evaluated next Wednesday.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad) will not play at the start of the NBA Finals, but the Warriors expect him to return at some point in the series.

    Cousins, who was hurt back in Game 2 of the Warriors first-round series with the Clippers, seems to be farther along than Kevin Durant, who remains iffy to return. Cousins return will provide a significant boost to a team that just swept the Blazers in the Western Conference Finals.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad) and Kevin Durant (calf strain) will be re-evaluated in one week as of Thursday's updates.

    It seems like Cousins is making progress in his rehab and there's a chance that he and Kevin Durant could make an appearance for the Warriors at some point sooner than expected.

    Steve Kerr said on Thursday that DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad) is "not close" to returning to game action, though he is making good progress in conditioning drills.

    Early reports had Cousins potentially returning during the Western Conference Finals but it seems unlikely that he makes an appearance before the next round, should the Warriors advance. Kevon Looney will be the big beneficiary in the meantime, though it'll be interesting to see how Kerr divides the minutes up should Cousins be ready for the Finals.

    According to Nick Friedell, DeMarcus Cousins (partially torn left quad) is unlikely to return for the Western Conference Finals.

    Boogie was getting in some light jogging and shooting at practice today. Although, it seems he won't be ready to return in the Western Conference Finals. Andrew Bogut might get more run in a matchup against Enes Kanter, but it should be a heavy dose of Kevon Looney when the Warriors aren't running the death lineup.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    Marc Stein is reporting that DeMarcus Cousins (partially torn left quad) may be able to return to the Warriors during the Western Conference Finals if he can maintain his current progress.

    Cousins is apparently doing quite well as he recovers from what looked to be a season-ending injury. The Warriors were able to knock off the Rockets on Friday despite missing Kevin Durant (calf), and now it looks as though they may be able to return to full strength at some point in the next round. If Cousins could play his way back into shape before the Finals (should the Warriors advance, of course), they'll have yet another matchup advantage over any potential opponent. The Western Conference Finals will kick off on Tuesday night.

    DeMarcus Cousins (partially torn left quad) said he expects to return to action before the playoffs are over, according to Marc J. Spears.

    Cousins said he was confident he could return when he was initially told the severity of his injury. The Warriors could use the depth, although Cousins has caused some issues on defense this season.

    Steve Kerr said it's possible that DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad) could return before the playoffs are over.

    That hinges on the Warriors advancing, obviously, but it's big news. They've been able to survive by going small but having a player of Cousins' talent, even hobbled, could give the Warriors a big jolt in a limited role. Cousins may also want to prove that he's healthy going into free agency this summer, so expect him to push through his recovery in an effort to get back on the court.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad) was in the gym getting some shots up while still only lightly walking around on Tuesday.

    Cousins is working his way back from an ugly looking injury in the Warriors first-round series and is unlikely to return this season. There is still a glimmer of hope that Cousins could make a return in the NBA Finals if the Warriors can reach there, but that is far from a certainty. In all likelihood, Cousins will enter free agency coming off of another season-ending injury.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad) is with the Warriors and rehabbing, although it remains highly unlikely that he will return this season.

    This doesn't change Cousins' status much for the playoffs, but it is nice to hear that he is able to get some work in. Cousins will again be on the open market this summer as he tries to prove his health before free agency starts up.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors did not outline the specific severity of DeMarcus Cousins’ quadricep muscle injury, but he suffered at least a Grade 2 tear which generally takes at least six weeks to recover from.

    The good part is that Boogie did not aggravate the surgically repaired left Achilles tendon that had sidelined him for nearly a year. Unfortunately though, the tear he suffered makes it unlikely that he will return at any point during the postseason since this is the kind of injury that could linger if he is not fully healed. And entering free agency again this summer we’d expect Boogie to be cautious with his recovery and get ready for another bounce-back season.

    The Warriors are listing DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad) as out indefinitely and said that he will begin rehabbing immediately.

    The Warriors also said the updates will be provided as appropriate. There is still a glimmer of hope that Cousins can return some time during the Finals, if the Warriors can advance. That is probably just wishful thinking.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    A Tuesday morning MRI has diagnosed Warriors All-Star DeMarcus Cousins with a torn left quad.

    Devastating news for Cousins as he heads into another year of free agency coming off a serious injury. Doctors are still determining the length of Cousins' rehab process. In the meantime, Kevon Looney and Andrew Bogut will have to pick up the slack. Draymond Green will shift to the five for stretches as well.
