Cousins: I'll return 'when I'm 100 percent ready'
2:43 AM ET
LAS VEGAS — DeMarcus Cousins was targeting training camp to make his return from a torn Achilles, but after further discussion with his new team, he’s going to be a bit more patient.
“I was aiming for training camp, but I’ve communicated with the staff and the coaches, and it’s kind of up in the air,” Cousins said at a news conference at the Thomas & Mack Center at UNLV after he signed his contract with the Golden State Warriors. “It will be when I’m ready, 100 percent ready, and we’ll take it from there.”
Cousins, who tore his Achilles tendon in January while a member of the New Orleans Pelicans, maintains that he’s making good progress toward a full recovery.
“It’s coming along great,” he said. “Basically, the healing part is over, and now it’s just about building strength. I’m improving each and every day. I feel stronger each and every day, and it’s just a matter of time before I’m back on the floor.”
