Cousins has been out since Game 2 of Golden State’s first-round series with the Clippers. After Friday’s series-clinching win over the Rockets, the Warriors don’t play until Tuesday night, when they’ll meet either Denver or Portland, who face off Sunday in Game 7.
In 30 games this season, Cousins averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.5 blocks in 25.7 minutes.
