Video footage has been released from DeMarcus Cousins' workout that resulted in the four-time All-Star tearing his ACL.
Per TMZ Sports, Cousins appears to suffer the injury while driving to the basket and making contact with another player:
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski first reported Cousins' injury, later getting confirmation from the veteran center's agent, Jeff Schwartz, that he was diagnosed with a torn ACL.
Wojnarowski added a timeline hasn't been set for Cousins to undergo surgery, nor is there any indication whether he will miss the entire 2019-20 season.
The Lakers gambled on Cousins returning to his All-Star form when they signed him to a one-year deal last month. He is coming off a difficult season with the Golden State Warriors that got off to a delayed start while he was rehabbing from a ruptured Achilles.
In 30 games with the Warriors, Cousins averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per contest. The Alabama native recorded his first playoff double-double in Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
