DeMarcus Cousins went just 4-for-17 from the field, though he had 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and a trey in Tuesday's win over the Jazz.
Even when Boogie isn't efficient with his shot, he can contribute in all other categories. He logged 28 minutes tonight, so it continues to creep up. He'll be sitting out Wednesday night's game in Portland, but he appears poised for a strong post-break run.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters he plans to play DeMarcus Cousins and Shaun Livingston on Tuesday night against the Jazz, but rest both on Wednesday against the Blazers.
The Warriors are on a first leg of a back-to-back Tuesday, so Kerr is managing his guys before the all-star break. Expect Kevon Looney to see more run in Wednesday's game.

DeMarcus Cousins was quiet on Sunday, but he made the game-winning free throws with less than six seconds left in a win over the Heat.
He had seven points with two steals and three blocks on 2-of-6 shooting in 27 minutes of action. He is top-70 value since returning for the Warriors, but he should climb up the rankings once his minutes restriction is lifted after the All-Star break.

DeMarcus Cousins did a bit of everything for the Warriors in their 117-107 win over the Suns on Friday, posting 18 points (7-of-11 shooting) with five rebounds, four assists, one triple, two steals and one block.
DMC's sweet line was soured only by his 3-of-6 shooting from the line. He's still not the dominant force in the paint he was before rupturing his Achilles but no one's expecting that at this point, so that's fine. He should get better and better as he gets more games and minutes under his belt this season.

DeMarcus Cousins put up 15 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks on 3-of-6 shooting in 17 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.
He is hovering around top-50 value despite averaging just 22.7 minutes per game and being on a 25-minute limit, so he could potentially have early-round value in the second half of the season.

DeMarcus Cousins will be on a 25-minute limit until the All-Star break.
DMC has been steadily getting better with each passing game but it's understandable that the Warriors want to bring him along slowly. He should see a nice pop post-ASB.

DeMarcus Cousins double-doubled against the Lakers on Saturday as he had 18 points and 10 rebounds on 5-of-15 shooting in 25 minutes.
He is averaging 14.4 points and 7.3 rebounds despite being on a 25-minute limit and averaging 22.7 minutes per game. He is on his way to early-round value once he shakes the minutes limit. Draymond Green was in foul trouble in this one, but had four points, three rebounds, seven assists and three blocks in his 27 minutes of action. Green is a top-50 value as well despite having his worst season since 2013-2014.

DeMarcus Cousins had another decent night against the Sixers on Thursday with seven points on 3-of-10 shooting to go with six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block.
Cousins is still playing with a 25-minute limit that is being strictly enforced but it doesn't matter because he puts up solid lines within that amount of time. He looks fluid out there for a big who just came back from an an Achilles injury and things are clicking for him much faster than anyone had thought.
January 31, 2019, 9:08 pmDeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors
DeMarcus Cousins will be limited to around 25-minutes on Thursday night.
One game after Cousins had his minute cap pushed to 30, he'll drop right back down to a 25-minute limit. Fortunately for fantasy owners, he's doing very efficient damage in his limited role. Expect some pretty good popcorn numbers in this abbreviated outing.

DeMarcus Cousins had a scary fall in Monday's game vs. the Pacers but quickly got up and was able to finish the night with 22 points (season-high) on 7-of-12 shooting, adding six boards, four dimes and a trey to the box score.
He had his minutes cap increased to 30 tonight but he only needed 25 minutes to deliver his line with the game well under control early. He took a scary spill during one play but was fine. Coach Steve Kerr said that Cousins was feeling a bit sore, so we'd advise you check on his status before their game vs. the Sixers. He's responding well to the increased load. So far so good for DMC.

DeMarcus Cousins' minute limit was increased to 24 on Saturday and the big man took it in stride, dropping 15 points, eight rebounds and a full stat line.
He dealt with a bit of foul trouble tonight, which we can chalk up to game-rust. DMC did shoot the ball reasonably well, hitting 4-of-9 shots from the field and 6-of-7 from the line. He also added three assists, three steals, a trey and one block to the box score. This performance was already relevant for his owners in standard leagues but we should see his numbers steadily improve as his minutes rise in the coming games, keeping him as a must-own player in all formats.
January 26, 2019, 7:26 pmDeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors
Coach Steve Kerr said DeMarcus Cousins' minutes restriciton will be around 24 minutes for Saturday's game against the Celtics.
Cousins played 24 minutes on Thursday and has looked good in his brief time playing his season. Owners should be thrilled with how good his jumper looks and how many open shots the Warriors offense has given him.

DeMarcus Cousins logged 24 minutes and scored 17 points with six boards, three assists and a block on Thursday.
Cousins shot an effiicient 8-for-12 from the field including a deep 28-foot 3-pointer. His shot looks clean and the Warriors offense is generating a ton of open looks for him as he was 6-for-8 at the rim tonight. He has an easy job and owners who stashed him are feeling pretty good about the lines he's putting up right now.

DeMarcus Cousins said that he no longer feels soreness in his left Achilles during and after games.
“There’s soreness when it comes to running and getting used to game speed,” Boogie said. “My legs are fatigued after that. But as far as the Achilles, it’s nothing. It’s good. It’s strong. It’s more conditioned than any part of my body part right now.” DMC had eight points while shooting 2-of-9 from the field and 0-of-2 from behind the arc on Monday as he is slowly getting back to game shape. The Warriors will absolutely monitor his minutes but this is great news and managers should be excited about his ROS production.

DeMarcus Cousins played 21 minutes in his second game back from a torn Achilles on Monday, posting eight points, nine rebounds and five assists.
Cousins only went 2-of-9 from the field and picked up four fouls but it's good to see him racking up stats in increased minutes even when his shot was off. We'd imagine that the team levels him off around 20 minutes for a few games after he jumped from 14 in his first game to 21 tonight, but it's clear that he can post some well-rounded lines as a cog in this stat machine. Kevon Looney remained productive as the primary backup with six points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and a block in 21 minutes. He'll be fine for deep-league use while Boogie is still capped.
