Report: DeMarcus Cousins suffers possible knee injury
DeMarcus Cousins tore his Achilles last year. He came back from it.
He suffered a quad injury early last postseason. Cousins came back from that, too.
But all that wear tear on his 6-foot-11, 270-pound body dissuaded teams in free agency this summer. Cousins settled for a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Lakers.
Already, the 29-year-old is facing another injury scare.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a possible knee injury and will undergo further testing today in Los Angeles, league sources tell ESPN. Cousins was working out in Las Vegas on Monday when he had to leave the court, sources said. He signed a one-year deal in July.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 15, 2019
The most terrifying part of this report is the unknown. This injury could be anything, and it’s easy for the mind to wander toward the most devastating outcomes. It also could be minor.
With Anthony Davis preferring not to play center, that leaves JaVale McGee as the Lakers’ only other center. If this injury is serious enough, Los Angeles could look into signing someone like Kenneth Faried or Nene.
