DeMarcus Cousins’ injury seems to be worse than first expected with the Golden State Warriors center expected to go for an MRI on Monday. He tweaked his ankle during the Warriors win over Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.

Steve Kerr confirmed the injury after the game and was optimistic about it being a minor knock. The Athletic is reporting that the team has now updated his injury status to a sore right foot after initially claiming it was a knock to the ankle.

Cousins has been listed as questionable for the Warriors’ game against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday and if the injury is more serious than expected, the center could miss the game against Spurs and Tuesday’s encounter against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He is yet to play back-to-back games for the Warriors since returning from a long-term Achilles injury in January.

Kerr is already without Kevin Durant, who suffered an ankle injury during the Warriors loss to the Phoenix last Sunday. He has missed two games thus far, and while he is listed as questionable for Monday’s game against the Spurs, coach Kerr is of the opinion he will be good to go.

Cousins’ injury will come at a bad time for the team but also for the player as he was slowly beginning to show his best form in recent games. He is currently averaging 15.6 points and 7.9 rebounds while playing an average of 25 minutes per game.

However, coach Kerr has a silver lining in the form of Andrew Bogut even if Cousins’ injury is worse than first expected. The Australian center, who was signed on a short-term deal on March 6 is expected to arrive earlier than expected.

Bogut was expected to join up with the Warriors squad in Oakland later in the week, but multiple NBA insiders are claiming that he will be present when they land in San Antonio for the game on Monday. It remains unclear if he will be part of the playing squad, but his second stint debut expected to arrive sooner than expected with The Athletic’s Anthony Slater reporting that the veteran center is available for the game.
