DeMarcus Cousins injured in Team USA Basketball practice

| August 14, 2014 | 0 Comments


Team USA Basketball is back together in Chicago for another training camp. They’ll workout together and train for the next two weeks before heading off to the FIBA World Cup Tournament.

Sacramento Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins is so close to a potential spot on the 12-man roster that he can taste it, but he’s also dangerously close to getting cut. His cause wasn’t helped on Thursday as he was injured in Thursday’s USA Basketball workout when he was going for a loose ball.

Cousins had to be helped off the court, favoring his right leg, and taken to a trainer’s table to be examined. How serious his injury is has yet to be determined. He’s scheduled to undergo an MRI, but the initial diagnosis suggests there wasn’t a torn ligament or broken bone.

Cousins is battling former Duke star and current Brooklyn Nets center Mason Plumlee for the final center spot on the roster. If Cousins were to make the team, he’d join former Kentucky Wildcats star and fellow alum Anthony Davis.
