For the second time since his return from a ruptured Achilles, DeMarcus Cousins will sit out a game.
The Warriors announced Wednesday morning that Cousins will miss the game against the Heat due to load management.
DeMarcus Cousins will not play tonight with Achilles recovery and load management. First night of back to back— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) February 27, 2019
It's the first night of a back-to-back as the Warriors take on the Magic on Thursday night in Orlando.
The other time Cousins rested was on Feb. 13 against the Blazers, the second night of a back-to-back.

Cousins is coming off his best game as a Warrior, as he scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds against the Hornets on Monday night.
With Cousins out, expect Kevon Looney to start in his place and carry a heavy workload. Second-year center Jordan Bell missed Monday's game in Charlotte with flu-like sympthoms and his status for Wednesday's game in Miami hasn't been updated.
