DeMarcus Cousins Could Miss
Season With Torn ACL
Cousins suffered his third serious
leg injury in the past year and a half.
The Lakers' center tore the ACL in his left knee
on Monday, according to his agent Jeff Schwartz.
He was working out in Las Vegas and
had to exit the court due to the injury.
Cousins previously tore his left Achilles in
January 2018 and tore his quadriceps in April.
It's no joke when you get injured.
This is our livelihood and it's something that we love to do.
It's super-unfortunate for a guy
, Kyle Kuzma, Lakers forward, via statement.
He's fought back and tried to get back as early as possible ... He was going to be a big part of what we're
going to do.

Cousins signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with Los Angeles this offseason.
Anthony Davis, acquired by the Lakers in a
trade with the Pelicans this offseason,
could play center for the Lakers this season
