DeMarcus Cousins knocked out of Game 2 vs Clippers due to quad injury

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins was ruled out of Game 2 of the team’s opening round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers after suffering a quad injury in the first quarter.

Cousins deflected an errant pass from the Clippers’ Danilo Gallinari and tried to run the ball down on the other side of the court, but lost his footing and came down hard on the ground.

He remained down on the court for a while before limping off and entering the Warriors’ locker room.

The Warriors announced shortly afterwards that Cousins would not return to the game and will get an MRI sometime in the next 24 hours.
