The injury occurred in the first quarter of their 135-131 loss to the Clippers that evened their first round series at one-apiece. What was scarier about this incident was that it was a non-contact injury, as he stumbled to the floor while chasing after a loose ball in the backcourt. This is the second straight season that the big man has suffered a major injury, as he also went down with a torn ACL last season while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans.
He returned from that injury in January after signing with the Warriors last summer on a one-year deal, which means he'll be right back on the free agent market this summer. Kevon Looney took over for Cousins on Monday night and ended up with a career-high 19 points in 19 minutes on 6-for-6 shooting. Another big man that will step in is the veteran Andrew Bogut, whom they just signed a couple months back. The series will continue with Game 3 at the Staples Center Thursday night.
