DeMarcus Cousins is 'right on schedule' according to Warriors' coach Steve Kerr

#DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins is slowly working his way back after suffering a ruptured left Achilles tendon, with his progress giving the Warriors plenty of optimism.

"He's right on schedule. He hasn't had any setbacks. He's doing well," Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told Mark Medina of the Mercury News.

While Cousins is looking good in the workout videos posted on social media, coach Kerr was reluctant to place a timetable for his return.

"Beyond that, there's nothing. No prediction. Especially with an Achilles injury, you have to wait and see how the player responds once he's on the court and moving at full speed."

The Warriors have the luxury of not rushing Cousins back, with plenty of depth in their frontcourt and they will likely use a combination of Jordan Bell, Kevon Looney and Damian Jones at the five as well as Draymond Green and Kevin Durant in smaller lineups.

Sure Not Now

Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3-million deal with the Warriors after averaging 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.6 blocks per game last season for the New Orleans Pelicans.
