In extremely unfortunate news, Lakers big man DeMarcus Cousins suffered yet another injury setback. After ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke news that Cousins was being further evaluated for a knee injury, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that Cousins indeed had suffered a torn ACL and would be out for another extended period of time.

Cousins can be seen driving to the basket in the courtside video before looking to briefly collide with one of the opposing defenders. While there wasn’t any significant contact between the two, Cousins yelped loudly before crashing to the ground underneath the hoop. While there may have been some minor contact involved – a possible knee bump was reported – it seems that Cousins was simply the victim of some more bad luck.
