Golden State Warriors

Warriors center Cousins has 'progressed to on-court work'

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins is getting closer to making a return in the NBA playoffs.

DeMarcus Cousins is taking steps towards returning to the court for the Golden State Warriors.

The 28-year-old center, who tore his left quadriceps muscle during the Warriors' first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers in mid-April, "has progressed to on-court work", the team announced on Thursday.

Cousins suffered the injury when he fell down chasing a loose ball on a fast break early in Golden State's series against the Clippers.

Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3million deal with the Warriors in July and missed the team's first 45 games as he continued to recover from a torn Achilles.

The Warriors entered Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday with a 1-0 lead.
