Game 2 of the first-round series between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers couldn’t have gone any worse for the defending champs. Not only did Golden State blow a 31-point lead and lose 135-131 at home, they might’ve lost DeMarcus Cousins for the remainder of the 2019 NBA playoffs.

Well before the Warriors built their massive lead that would allow L.A. to make a historic comeback, Cousins left the game with a non-contact injury. Head coach Steve Kerr acknowledged after the contest that it was a significant quad injury, and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that the team fears Cousins suffered a torn quad.

Such an injury would end Cousins’ postseason. He’s scheduled to undergo an MRI Tuesday.

According to Wojnarowski, the best-case scenario would be a strained quad for Cousins, though the evidence points to a more serious injury.

“There's a pretty significant quad injury,” Kerr told reporters. “We'll get an MRI [on Tuesday], but he's going to be out for -- I'll just say a while because I think it's unclear right now how long he'll be out. It's significant.”

Cousins had nine points and nine rebounds in 21 minutes in Golden State’s Game 1 victory. He scored two points and grabbed two rebounds before getting hurt after four minutes in Game 2.

After suffering a torn left Achilles in February 2018, Cousins didn’t make his 2018-2019 season debut until Jan. 18. He averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.5 blocks per game in 30 regular-season contests for the Warriors.
