DeMarcus Cousins may be able to return after all

DeMarcus Cousins may be back on the floor sooner than we all thought.

In round one of the NBA Playoffs, Demarcus Cousins tore his left quad muscle – his second leg injury in just two years – and everyone was immediately doubtful for his return to the basketball floor in this year’s playoffs.

But, after a few weeks of rehab, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Cousins could possibly come back this postseason after all.

“He’s coming along pretty well,” Kerr told reporters. “It’s just wait-and-see.”

After a detrimental injury in 2018, Cousins went to Golden State to build himself back up to look more appealing to other NBA teams come contract time, all en route to winning a championship. All of that seemed to be at risk once his quad blew out in the first round, so hopefully, Cousins will return and play a big role in what would be Golden State’s fourth championship in five years.

    It’s hard to imagine Boogie coming back this year, but that would be amazing.
