Fantasy Impact:

Boogie is playing on his third team in as many years, and the Lakers are hoping that he can finally overcome the injury bug that he's dealt with in recent seasons. While he may no longer be able to operate as an All-Star caliber center, he still has the capacity to dominate stretches of play. Even in a limited role last season with the Warriors, Cousins still averaged 16.3 PPG, 8.2 RPG, and 3.6 APG. However, it remains to be seen whether coach Frank Vogel wants to stick with the more mobile JaVale McGee in the starting rotation, or pair Cousins with his former Pelicans teammate, Anthony Davis.
