DeMarcus Cousins is rehabbing his Achilles injury and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.
“I’m stubborn as hell,” said Cousins. “I thought I knew that before, but I’m really starting to realize it now. My drive has only increased. I’m seriously like a madman right now.
“I think you guys will see a new DeMarcus on the floor. I can’t wait to get to that point just to show all the work I have put in.”
Cousins was asked what has helped most during his rehab and he replied with an on-brand statement.
“The haters," said Cousins. "That’s all I need. I feed off of it. I love it.”
The Warriors aren't ready to set a target date for his return.
“I know there’s a narrative that we’ll save DeMarcus for the playoffs, and that’s inaccurate,” general manager Bob Myers said. “When he can play, he’ll play. We won’t rush him, but we also won’t hold him back.”
Golden State will play Jordan Bell, Kevon Looney and Damian Jones at center.
