DeMarcus Cousins ​​won’t be ready for season start

DeMarcus Cousins ​​won’t be ready for season start

DeMarcus Cousins ​​is arguably the most injured player in the past two seasons. Until the beginning of 2018, the center had established itself as one of the most talented players in the League. However, on January 26 of that same year the former Kings’ career took a 180 degree turn. As a player for the New Orleans Pelicans, he broke the Achilles tendon in his left leg, just when he was in great form.

But the worst was yet to come, as after a serious quadriceps injury, Cousins ​​tore the cruciate ligament in the same left leg before starting the 2019/2020 season. In this way, and after a brief stint with the Warriors and Lakers, the four-time All-Star is currently without a team. And it is that in the last two and a half years he has only played 30 games in the NBA.

The Alabama player’s agent recently told SLAM’s Jeff Kent that his client would not be ready for the start of the 2020/2021 season. And although he was expected in the Orlando bubble with one of the 22 teams, DeMarcus Cousins ​​preferred to be cautious to fully recover from his injuries. His representative has also confirmed that there has been no setback in his recovery, but it will take time to reappear and he is not expected to play the first month of competition.

On his return, DeMarcus Cousins ​​will have to show that he still has a place in the League. From his past, it has been rumored the possibility that the Lakers want to have him to reinforce their inner game. As has also been speculated with a possible incorporation to the Wizards because of his friendship with John Wall.

It should be noted that after two years standing still and with the pace of the NBA increasing, the 30-year-old center would suffer with the style of the aforementioned teams. The speed and physique of the Angelenos or the game of constant exchanges by those of the capitol could be devastating for their recovery. The team that has him will have to be patient with his adaptation and have a Plan B, since, unfortunately, today Cousins ​​is not a guarantee of anything. (GG) (NBAMANIACS)
