DeMarcus Cousins has been issued an arrest warrant

An arrest warrant has been issued for DeMarcus Cousins. He is being charged with third-degree harassing communications.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins was being investigated by the NBA for a domestic abuse allegation, the police have issued a warrant for his arrest. The Mobile Municipal Court website lists a third-degree harassment communications charge against Cousins, but no other details have been provided. An audio recording demonstrates Cousins threatening former girlfriend Christy West. His days as a Laker could be numbered, even if he is able to recover from torn ACL in time for the postseason.

DeMarcus Cousins under investigation for domestic abuse

DeMarcus Cousins is being investigated by the NBA for a domestic abuse allegation after audio was released by TMZ on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The audio is of a man and woman --allegedly Cousins and his ex-girlfriend --arguing over a child attending a wedding. When the woman says the child can't go, the man threatens to "put a bullet in her (expletive) head." Cousins is under investigation by the league, and NBA spokesman Mike Bass said, "We are aware of the report regarding DeMarcus Cousins and are investigating the allegations." Obviously nothing has been proven yet, and the situation is very much fluid. If there is any truth to these allegations, Cousins' days as a Laker could be numbered, even if he recovers from his torn ACL in time for the 2020 postseason.

DeMarcus Cousins suffers torn ACL

DeMarcus Cousins has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, Shams Charania reports.

Fantasy Impact

Updating a prior note, Cousins’ knee injury is a torn ACL — a worst case scenario. Given the lengthy recovery time and his recent injury history, he’s unlikely to play in the regular season. Signed to a one-year deal, he may never take the court for the Lakers.

DeMarcus Cousins suffers possible knee injury

DeMarcus Cousins left a workout Monday due to an apparent knee injury, Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Fantasy Impact

It’s unclear what’s going on with Boogie’s knee, but he’ll have testing done Thursday, and more information should be available shortly thereafter. The possibility of an injury, no matter how small, is concerning, given Cousins appeared in just 78 games over the last two seasons while dealing with a torn Achilles suffered in January, 2018. If he’s forced to miss time, JaVale McGee should be the favorite to start at center.

DeMarcus Cousins heads to the Lakers

DeMarcus Cousins is signing with the Los Angeles Lakers on a one-year contract.

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.
