DeMarcus Cousins will make his Warriors debut January 18

DeMarcus Cousins will make his Warriors debut January 18

The Golden State Warriors have had a rockier season than most would've expected but they could be back to their regular dominance with the return of All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins.

While the Golden State Warriors have been dominant this year, it hasn't been their best season record-wise. They play both the Clippers and the Lakers during that trip, on the 18th and 21st of January, respectively. Head coach Steve Kerr today declined to give an exact return date, but said that DeMarcus Cousins's return, "Is closer now..."

The Warriors will host the Knicks on Tuesday. "It's not as simple as 'that's the game.' It's somewhere in that neighborhood". Injured big man DeMarcus Cousins is expected to make his team debut January 18, according to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes.

"Maybe it's the New Orleans game a couple days earlier". It's looked to us and it's felt to him that he has broken through a barrier.

Of course, we will have to wait to see how everything plays out next Friday and beyond.

I have a different point of view, but the important thing is what he and Derby think. I am responsible for it because I didn't ask for Leeds United permission to do it.

Arsenal eye loan deal for Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega
Emery was also asked about Ever Banega , a player he managed at Sevilla and is a rumoured target for the Gunners . He added: "The club is working, telling me each moment different situations can happen".

While the Warriors will welcome Cousins with open arms, his repaired Achilles will still be the main concern.

He's hoping to help Golden State win a third straight title and then land a big extension or sign a max deal with a new team this summer. Starter Damian Jones was sidelined due to a torn pectoral and Kevon Looney has had to make up much of the deficit.

Cousins' teammates are happy that a target date is finally in place. "I know our fan base is excited, the National Basketball Association is excited". The NBA is excited. He added that the team would be working on integrating Cousins into the offense.

An Achilles injury is by no means career-ending, but it does limit the mobility of players affected by it and diminish their overall ability. "It seems to me he's gotten through a barrier, conditioning-wise". "I've seen up close and personal how good he is". I commend him for sticking with it. People don't realize how hard that is to do. I've been blessed to play with him with Team USA.
