DeMarcus Cousins’ MRI came back clean

We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Oklahoma City Thunder Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins had an MRI on Monday on his right ankle, and the results came back clean. While he is still out for tonight’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, Cousins is officially listed as day-to-day.

This is great news for the franchise. Everyone in the organization - and the fanbase - surely held their breath when Cousins exited Saturday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder with foot soreness.

A clean MRI, especially for a player who tore his Achilles just over a year ago, is a great sign.

Still, it may be a few days before we see Cousins. Andrew Bogut has joined the team in San Antonio, and Golden State will likely play it safe with Cousins. It would not be at all surprising if the four-time All-Star rests on Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

As long as Cousins is healthy when the playoffs begin, the Warriors will be happy.
