Report: Lakers' Cousins hurts knee in VegasReuters | Vegas | Updated: 15-08-2019 21:45 IST | Created: 15-08-2019 21:39 IST
DeMarcus Cousins is scheduled to meet with Los Angeles Laker's physicians on Thursday to determine the extent of a knee injury he suffered in Las Vegas, ESPN reported. Cousins, 29, signed a one-year deal with the Lakers in free agency after a season with the Golden State Warriors. He was coming off of a torn Achilles and missed the first half of the 2018-19 season.
Cousins was injured when he bumped knees with another player while working out, ESPN reported. In nine NBA seasons, Cousins has averaged 21.2 points and 10.9 rebounds per game. Joining the Lakers on a $3.5 million pact reunited Cousins with former New Orleans Pelicans teammate Anthony Davis.
Cousins missed several weeks during the 2019 NBA playoffs with a quadriceps injury.
