Kerr says Boogie is ‘right on schedule’ in rehab; no timetable for return


DeMarcus Cousins will be playing for the Golden State Warriors next season. As unbelievable as that is, that is a given. The only question is when.

Cousins ruptured his Achilles back in January while playing for the Pelicans and has been rehabbing since and has made strides in his recovery, posting sneak peeks on social media.


So far, Head Coach Steve Kerr has been pleased with Cousins’ progress, but was unwilling to put a date on Cousins’ return.

“He’s right on schedule. He hasn’t had any setbacks. He’s doing well. Beyond that, there’s nothing. No prediction. Especially with an Achilles injury, you have to wait and see how the player responds once he’s on the court and moving at full speed,” Kerr said to Mark Medina of the Mercury News.

Despite his injury, Cousins is still considered one of the best big men in the league, and when healthy, is a force to be reckoned with offensively and defensively. Teaming up with arguably the greatest team ever should lighten the load off Cousins and allow him to gradually incorporate himself back into basketball shape, and help him contribute for the Warriors as they look to go for a three-peat.

Cousins averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.6 blocks for the Pelicans last season before getting injured.
