According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a torn ACL.

The big man apparently suffered the injury after working out in Las Vegas on Monday.

Cousins was widely expected to join a starting frontcourt alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis for the new-look Lakers after signing a one-year, veteran’s minimum deal over the summer.

He averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game for the Golden State Warriors last season.
