DeMarcus Cousins returned to full practices in the month of December, but a full return is still slow coming. Obviously, the Golden State Warriors have been able to survive through the long healing process after the Achilles tear. His return to the floor could be the extra boost of talent the team needs to secure the elusive three-peat.

While there is no definite timetable, history has shown that the Warriors training and medical departments are not shy about holding players back until they feel they are 100%. In November, Steph Curry was held off the court for nearly the entire month with a groin injury, despite his assertions that he could have returned earlier.

Coach Steve Kerr said yesterday to the media, “I’ve gotta feel good about putting him on the floor.” He further referenced Cousins’ safety as another factor in this lengthy return timetable.

It seems as if the Golden State Warriors are focusing hard on making sure their players are fresh for when the real NBA season starts in April.
