Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins will undergo an MRI on quad injury
Cousins sustained the injury early in the opening quarter. He tried to save the ball but he fell without any contact and slid on the floor. He was obviously in pain after the play and eventually headed to the locker room limping.
The team announced that it was a quad injury. And now, Adrian Wojnaorwski of ESPN is reporting that Cousins is schedule to get an MRI on his injured squad on Tuesday.

DeMarcus Cousins logged only three minutes and scored two points before he was forced to exit the game.
Cousins returned from a torn Achilles midway through the 2018-19 season. He has been a productive piece in the Warriors organization, averaging 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds in the regular season.
The Warriors will now look at Andrew Bogut as their primary center. They can also go small and employ their “death lineup” for long periods of time. Kevon Looney is also sure to log some minutes at the five.
Hopefully, the injury is nothing serious and Cousins will return in Game 3 of the series when it moves to Los Angeles. More details are sure to follow as soon as Cousins receives his MRI results.
