DeMarcus Cousins Suffers Another Brutal Season-Ending Injury
For the second year in a row, DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a serious injury that could end his season early.
Cousins tore his left quadriceps in Game 2 of the Golden State Warriors first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Business Insider.
The team announced that they are still evaluating the seriousness of the injury and that he was out indefinitely.
If past injuries are any indication, it will likely end Cousins' season.
Cousins had been on the court for just three months after rehabbing from a torn Achilles that ended his season last year.
Cousins' torn Achilles came before he hit the free agent market in 2018 as one of the best free agents available.
Torn Achilles tendons are famously difficult to return from, and Cousins' injury squashed his value.
ESPN reported that some teams had a "No Cousins" policy before the injury.
Adding that Cousins' offers may have been for an annual salary for the mid-level exception — $8.6 million — for multiple years.
He instead signed a one-year, $5.7 million contract with the Golden State Warriors.
