Golden State Warriors All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins suffered an ankle injury in the second half of the team’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder Saturday night.
Initial indications were that Cousins simply rolled his ankle. Though, with an Achilles injury in his recent past, there was some concern.
That’s now been alleviated. MRI results on Cousins’ injured ankle came back negative.
Warriors say DeMarcus Cousins underwent an MRI on his sore right ankle today, the results of which came back clean. He will not play in tonight’s game at San Antonio and will be listed as day-to-day.

He’ll miss Monday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, but it doesn’t figure to be a long-term injury.
Cousins, 28, has been tremendous since making his Warriors debut back on January 18 — averaging 15.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.
He’s been even better recently. The All-Star is averaging 18.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.9 blocks over the past eight games.
