Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins suffered a possible injury on Monday when he was working out. He signed a one-year deal with the Lakers in July.

Despite making the NBA Finals with the Golden State Warriors, there was very little interest in Cousins after his first season back from an Achilles. He eventually signed with the Lakers after being convinced to do so by his former New Orleans Pelicans teammate Anthony Davis, who was acquired by the Lakers in the off-season.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (see below), Cousins is undergoing tests on Thursday in Los Angeles, California. He also says that the big man will meet with the Lakers team physicians.

In his story on ESPN.com, Wojnarowski said he bumped knees with another player.

As a member of the Pelicans during the 2017-18 season, Cousins suffered a torn Achilles injury. He was out nearly one year after the injury.

Upon his return with the Warriors, he was their center replacing Kevon Looney. In the first round of the playoffs, he suffered a quadriceps injury – and it was believed that he would be lost for the rest of the playoffs.

However, he did come back to the team in their run to the NBA Finals, before losing to the Toronto Raptors.

The 29-year-old Mobile, Alabama native appeared in 30 games, including 30 starts during the 2018-19 season. He averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.5 blocks in 25.7 minutes per game.
