The worst possible outcome for former Kentucky star DeMarcus Cousins has come to fruition.
This morning, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Cousins had injured his knee during a workout in Las Vegas.
Now, Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that Cousins’ injury is, in fact, a torn ACL.

According to Wojnarowski, the injury came this morning when Cousins bumped knees with another player, forcing him to leave the court and travel back to Los Angeles for testing.
Cousins signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers in July, where he was set to team up with former Wildcat Anthony Davis and NBA superstar LeBron James.
In April, he tore his left quad but was able to return to the court in June to play for the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. In January 2018, he tore his Achilles and had to miss an entire year.
Today’s injury means Boogie has torn his Achilles, quadriceps, and ACL in the last 566 days alone.
Prayers to Cousins during this extremely difficult time…
