Steve Kerr: DeMarcus Cousins Will Start Immediately

DeMarcus Cousins injury update: Warriors star to make season debut on Jan. 18 against Clippers, per report

Per a report by ESPN's Marc Spears, the former No. 5 overall pick is planning to play against the Los Angeles Clippers on January 18th at the Staples Center. "I'll start him. After that, everything's on the table".

While there's no doubt this team is still the favorite to repeat, Jason Smith thinks Steve Kerr is looking for someone to light a fire under them, and the return of DeMarcus Cousins could be that flame.

"We'll have to play around with him - the minutes, the combinations, the sets".

Cousins tore his Achilles last season in late January while playing for the Pelicans, forcing him to miss the rest of 2017-18.

The mayor also proposed free vison tests and prescription eyeglasses to any kindergartner or first-grader who needs them. This office will spearhead the city's anti-harassment initiatives program and "root out the worst landlord abuse".

Cousins joined the defending champions Warriors on a free contract of 5.3 million US dollars a year and hopes to play for the team in the second half of the season.

As for Cousins, he tried to downplay expectations for his first game back since January 2018.

In the past week, Cousins has made some "big strides" in his rehab and conditioning, according to Kerr. "And we were waiting for that barrier". Cousins' return will see the Warriors team possess five All-Star's in their lineup with - Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green being the other four. The NBA is excited. But if he looks good, he'll just make them even more unsafe. Hopefully this will not be the case, but it wouldn't be surprising at all if he is unable to get back to the all-pro level he was at prior to getting hurt. "I commend him for sticking with it".

In parts of eight seasons split between the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans, Cousins has averaged 21.5 points, 11 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game.
