DeMarcus Cousins suffers non-contact left quad injury

Last night, former Kentucky center and current Golden State Warrior DeMarcus Cousins fell to the floor with an apparent non-contact left quad injury.

And according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, there is “significant concern” that he tore it.

The injury occurred when Cousins made an attempt to dive for a loose ball early in the first quarter.

Right away, the 6-foot-11 big man knew something wasn’t right, immediately grabbing at his left leg.

Here was the play:

And another angle:

Walking off the court, Cousins was visibly frustrated with the situation, brushing off teammates trying to help him to the locker room.

Once he got to the tunnel, the former Wildcat lifted up his shorts on the left side, which revealed an obvious sign that things are not right with his quad.


This news comes just 15 months after Cousins suffered a torn left Achilles in January of 2018, 32 games after he made his season debut post-injury, and just one game after he made his first career start and registered his first points in the NBA Playoffs.

Now, an MRI today will not only determine if the former Wildcat’s very first postseason is over, but whether or not he will have to start from scratch in the rehabilitation process.

Absolutely crushing.

    Breaks my heart that he is facing such a tough injury AGAIN. I am not a fan of the Warriors, quite the opposite in fact, but I have been watching them because of DeMarcus. I always like to see former Cats do well at the next level, and he was finally getting comfortable in his role and playing extremely well. He’s been waiting his whole career for a chance to play in the postseason and chase a championship, and then this…
    Praying for you Big Cuzz

    I don’t see how that is not a torn quad just from looking at the pic.
