DeMarcus Cousins Will Reportedly Make Season Debut with Warriors on January 18

That said, Golden State was one of a few teams with an excellent medical staff along with the ability to allow Boogie a full recovery, not bringing him back till he's ready to play at the highest level.

"It's exciting", Klay Thompson told reporters after dropping 43 points, on just four dribbles, in the 122-95 dismantling of the Knicks on Tuesday night. Injured big man DeMarcus Cousins is expected to make his team debut January 18, according to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. "I just love the style of play that they play with, and so I heavily considered that and I asked them if they would like me there, and they said 'Yeah'".

Either way, it's an exciting time for the Warriors as the star center was rumored late a year ago to be returning in February, not January. And we were waiting for that barrier.

He's hoping to help Golden State win a third straight title and then land a big extension or sign a max deal with a new team this summer.

Kerr repeatedly has noted that Cousins has fit into the Warriors locker room this season by using his sense of humor and experience to serve as a veteran sounding board for younger players such as Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell and Damian Jones.

Question is, what should be the expectation for Boogie as he approaches his return to the National Basketball Association floor for the first time since he suffered a torn Achilles last January? He added that the team would be working on integrating Cousins into the offense. "It seems to me he's gotten through a barrier, conditioning-wise".

"He's been great in the rehab process. I've seen up close and personal how good he is".
