The Golden State Warriors on their quest to make their 5th straight NBA Finals and win their 3rd straight title. This off-season they added Center DeMarcus Cousins to the mix who was coming of an Achilles injury. And in Monday’s playoff game against the Los Angeles Clippers it appears he injured his quad in this video below:

Three concerning aspects of that DeMarcus Cousins injury: Non-contact aspect, his reaction, same leg as the Achilles tear.

Hopefully it’s not serious but reports are he will get an MRI on Tuesday. But ESPN.com’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Warriors fear the worst:
There's significant concern that DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a torn left quad, but there won't be complete certainty until his MRI on Tuesday, league sources tell ESPN. The hope is that it's just a strain.
