Tremendous! Lakers lose Cousins, who is injured again: Crusader break

The pivot, recently incorporated into the Lakers, has suffered another serious mishap. The period of leave would go beyond five months.

The renewed Lakers, now with Anthony Davis accompanying LeBron James, are not having a week of great joys. If yesterday it was known that Tyronn Lue will sign for the neighbors, the Clippers, after being the best placed coach for the bench and then rejecting that option, today it is the template that trembles.

Adrian Wojnarowski, of ESPN, reported in the first instance of the physical problems suffered by Marcus Cousins. Shams Charania, of The Athletic, has subsequently confirmed the diagnosis: rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee. The mishap occurred in one of the trainings that the pivot is doing in Las Vegas to prepare the season, colliding in one of them with another player and causing this devastating injury.

It is still a last medical exam to know the real scope of the lesion and estimate the time that will be blow. It is quite a stick for the Angels.


Concern exists for being who it is, for being the one presumed to be the main pivot of the team and, above all, for the history of injuries he treasures. Last season he signed for a very low contract just to be able to play in the Warriors while recovering from a rupture of the Achilles tendon, but in full playoffs he was injured again and his performance was below expected (in addition to his team failed to win the title). This season he has signed a contract for even less money (3.5 million dollars for one year) than the previous one, but his stage as a laker could not start worse.
