WATCH: DeMarcus Cousins takes hard spill, in pain on court

In just his fifth game back from injury, Golden State Warriors big man DeMarcus Cousins suffered quite a scare early in Monday’s game with the Indiana Pacers.

Cousins got going on a fast break. As he was going to the hoop, he was fouled by Myles Turner — landing hard and awkwardly on the ground.

It was a scary moment for Cousins. He took a while to get back to his feet and remained in discomfort for a while.

But Cousins did stay in the game, even making both of his free throws. Not too long after, he knocked down a three.

While all seems to be okay, we’re guessing that Cousins will opt to pass ahead the next time the situation presents itself.
