Cousins wasn’t contacted on the play, and immediately stayed down as the Clippers corralled possession and pivoted upcourt in transition. He immediately flagged the training staff and began heading toward the locker room, walking gingerly on the injured leg.

The team updated his status shortly afterward, announcing he wouldn’t return and will be undergoing an MRI within a day’s time.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski later reported that there’s “significant concern” the injury is a torn left quad, but hope it’s a strain.
