DeMarcus Cousins to Return to Warriors' Lineup After Two-game Absence

OAKLAND - Following a two-game absence, DeMarcus Cousins is expected to play in Thursday night's home matchup against the Pacers, according to the team. 

Cousins, who injured his foot in Saturday's win over the Thunder, had an MRI on Sunday afternoon that didn't reveal any damage. Prior to the injury, Cousins was playing some of his best basketball as a Warrior, finishing with 27 points, eight rebounds and seven assists against the Rockets last week. 

Without Boogie, the Warriors went 1-1 to close their most recent four-game road trip. Cousins' absence also forced the team to bring Andrew Bogut into the lineup earlier than expected.
