Golden State Warriors: DeMarcus Cousins return is t-minus 10 days away

Golden State Warriors Tyson Chandler Considered Warriors Before Signing With Lakers

Cousins, 28, averaged 25.2 points and 12.9 rebounds in 48 games before the injury last season.

"All I can tell is it's closer now because the last week his scrimmaging looks much better", Kerr said.

The team is still awaiting the return of prized offseason acquisition DeMarcus Cousins and head coach Steve Kerr confirmed that Cousins is making good progress as he participates fully in team practices.

Golden State Warriors forward/center DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is targeting January 18 versus the Los Angeles Clippers for his season debut, according to Marc J. Spears of ESPN.

Demarcus Cousins may finally be returning to the Warriors' lineup next Friday with hopes of the team what they are truly missing, a dominant center.

Kerr said earlier this week he has been impressed by Cousins' recent workouts.

While there has been no official word from the Warriors on the accuracy of the date, mid-January falls in line with Cousins projected recovery timetable.

I can't wait to integrate him into our team.

What seemed even more insane is when Dub Nation received the news that the star was signing a one-year deal with Golden State, worth about five million.

"Or do I want to come to the Lakers, where they were teeter-tottering a little bit, struggling at the time, but I'd seen it coming alive, and I've always loved the draft picks and the young players that they had here, and then 'Bron coming here, and then (Rajon) Rondo, and then having those vets?"

The Golden State Warriors has had an up and down season. There, a healthy Cousins can alleviate pressure on Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant offensively, and give the Warriors a true big, allowing Draymond to roam from the post to perimeter defensively.

The Warriors are now in second place in the Western Conference with a 26-14 record with the Denver Nuggets just ahead having lost two games fewer than the back-to-back champions.
