DeMarcus Cousins began practicing with Golden State's G-League team in Santa Cruz this week, but his Warriors debut is likely to be delayed until February, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The newspaper cites Santa Cruz Warriors coach Aaron Miles, who said Cousins is "probably not moving as well as he wants to right now" after Wednesday's practice, his second with the team. Cousins joined the Warriors on a one-year, $5.3 million deal in free agency with the expectation he could return to the court 2019 after recovering from a ruptured Achilles suffered last January.
DeMarcus Cousins might already be practicing with the Golden State Warriors’ practice squad, but it reportedly could still be months before the center makes his Warriors debut. A report from the San Francisco Chronicle indicated that Cousins’ return from injury is more likely to come in February, rather than New Year’s Day as some speculated. Cousins has been out since January 2018 with an Achilles rupture that ended his tenure with the New Orleans Pelicans and caused him to sign a one-year deal with the Warriors this offseason.
