Warriors’ DeMarcus Cousins will start when he returns from injury

DeMarcus Cousins injury update: Warriors star to make season debut on Jan. 18 against Clippers, per report

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins will be included in the starting lineup immediately when he is able to make his season debut after being sidelined for almost a year, coach Steve Kerr said on Thursday.

Cousins was initially expected to return earlier, with some reports penciling him for a return just after Christmas, but the center has revealed that the January 18 date was picked after a discussion between him, the medical staff and the team management.

While there's no doubt this team is still the favorite to repeat, Jason Smith thinks Steve Kerr is looking for someone to light a fire under them, and the return of DeMarcus Cousins could be that flame.

"Yeah I'll start him", Kerr told reporters at a Warriors practice. We'll have to play around with the minutes, the combinations, the sets. "After that, everything's on the table", Kerr said at Warriors shootaround Thursday, according to The Mercury News' Mark Medina.

DeMarcus Cousins will return from injury for the Golden State Warriors against the LA Clippers on January 18.

Cousins, of course, has spent the past eleven months rehabbing from a torn Achilles tendon he suffered in a late January game last season for the New Orleans Pelicans against the Houston Rockets. "And we were waiting for that barrier".

The impending return has thrilled Cousins' teammates, including All-Star swingman Klay Thompson. But if he looks good, he'll just make them even more risky. "I commend him for sticking with it".

Before the injury last season, Cousins was averaging 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.6 blocks for the Pelicans.
