DeMarcus Cousins left the Golden State Warriors game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday after injuring his left leg.

Cousins got a steal, and got out on the break by himself. But he awkwardly fell to the floor in a non-contact injury. He was helped up, and held his left leg before limping off to the locker room.

It was not nearly as bad looking as when he tore his Achilles in January 2018, but a non-contact leg injury is never good news.

While Cousins was limping, he was able to go to the locker room under his own power. That’s a good thing, and the hope is that it’s a minor injury, or even better yet, a cramp.

The team has not released any information at this time, but we will update you as soon as they do.

Cousins was playing in just his second career playoff game, and his last injury cost him a full year. Hopefully he’s okay.
