Los Angeles Lakers' Cousins suffers ACL injury - reports

DeMarcus Cousins reportedly suffers ACL injury

Los Angeles, August 16: Los Angeles Lakers' new recruit DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury, according to reports.

Cousins, who battled through a quad injury during the play-offs with the Golden State Warriors last season - having already overcome a torn Achilles suffered midway through the 2017-18 campaign - signed a one-year deal worth $3.5 million with the Lakers in July.

However, the Lakers look set to be without their star signing for a time, with The Athletic reporting Cousins ruptured his ACL during a workout in Las Vegas.

Cousins is said to have been training on Monday when he suffered an injury which forced him off the court, and the 29-year-old was set to undergo scans on Thursday (August 15).

After signing with the Lakers, Cousins said previous injury struggles have helped him realise how much he loves the game.

“Everything I've gone through in the past three years it just helped me realise how fast this thing can be taken away from you," Cousins told the Los Angeles Times.

"I love it that much more. I'm grateful for every opportunity. I learned the hard way."
