Achilles tear injuries are not fun. These types of injuries keep happening.

Cousins, 29, was working out in Las Vegas on Monday when he had to leave the court after what one source described as "bumping knees" with another player.

Bumping knees not worry too much... it's when knee injury occurs solo like running, jumping, planting, push-off, is what more worrisome... I am no doctor but I think this will be resulted in more like some kind of bruising on the bumped area of the knee and DeMarcus was taking out more for precautionary measure.

I know this maybe an unpopular post but as someone who is rooting for Los Angles Lakers to win it all this season. I do think the center position is now weaker than ever. McGee is McGee he shouldn't be expected to play major mins. I would try and reach out to Dwight Howard. Yes I know he left on bad terms. Apparently he tried to reach out to Lakers in an attempt to make a come back this season. The Lakers rejected him. Now that both parties have rejected each other once, maybe a fresh clean slate for the former 3x DPOY?
