Update: The injury has been confirmed as a torn quad.

The Golden State Warriors have lost center DeMarcus Cousins to a quad injury in Game 2 of their 2019 NBA Playoffs series versus the Los Angeles Clippers. Kristen Ledlow of TNT led with the story.

Cousins went down in the first quarter of tonight’s game, falling to the court and grabbing his leg after chasing down a loose ball. He did not make contact with any other players.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that Cousins will undergo an MRI on Tuesday and that the mood surrounding his injury is grim.

Cousins signed with the Warriors last summer on a single-year free agency deal while rehabilitating a torn left Achilles injury. He appeared in 30 regular season games, averaging 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. This is his first trip to the playoffs in his nine-year career.
