Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins will have an MRI on Tuesday. He left Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers with a left quad injury.

Cousins will miss the rest of the game at Oracle Arena. Presently, the Warriors have a 20-plus lead in the third quarter.

While the Warriors are calling it a quad injury, it could be worse than this. However, nobody will officially know until Cousins has the MRI.

Cousins appeared in Game 2 for just three minutes. He had two points, two rebounds, and one assist.

In Game 1, he had nine points in 21 minutes. He also had nine rebounds, four assists, and one steal.

Boogie, as he is known, came back this season from a torn Achilles. He has proven that he is fully back from the injury.

Without Cousins, the Warriors will have to rely on Kevin Looney and Andrew Bogut. Against the Clippers, the Warriors could use Looney more because he is a better option against Los Angeles in this series.

The 28-year-old Mobile, Alabama native made 30 appearances for the Warriors during the regular season, including 30 starts. He averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game in 25.7 minutes per contest.
