Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins suffered an injury while working out in Vegas on Monday, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Woj adds the injury was apparently suffered when Cousins banged knees with another player.
This is the latest in a series of health obstacles Cousins has faced since tearing his Achilles’ tendon during the 2017-18 season when he was with the New Orleans Pelicans. After he signed with the Golden State Warriors, Cousins played 30 games, averaging 16.3, 8.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists in only 25.7 minutes before suffering a quadriceps injury in the Warriors first round playoff series against the Clippers that would keep him out until the NBA Finals.
Potential health concerns going forward for the big man was the primary reason he was only able to secure a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Lakers this offseason. Boogie has not played more than since his rookie season and when healthy he is an All-Star (4 times) and All-NBA (2 times) level player.
