As Nigerians still await the provisional list of players for the world cup, Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi says they’re still continuously working and monitoring the players.

Even without putting up a point, Davis feels Cousins can still add to their locker room.“It’s good for him to be here and still feel a part of something even though he’s not able to play,” he said. “And for us to just have every guy around and feel a part of the team and be a part of the team. So we’re all glad that he’s able to be here.” Not bringing Cousins back from his Achilles injury might have accelerated the timeline with Davis. Cousins took until January to rehab, but Davis lost both him and Rondo from the previous year’s team. A rough start for New Orleans led Davis to make the trade demand that eventually led him to the Lakers.He was looking forward to being teammates with Cousins again but considers it a cruel irony that Cousins suffered yet another injury that makes it unlikely he’ll play this season. Cousins also has dealt with legal trouble the last few months, after an ex-girlfriend filed harassment charges in August that were just dismissed on Friday. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years SAN ANTONIO — He might never wear a Lakers jersey in a game this season, but DeMarcus Cousins is still clearly part of the team.The 6-foot-11 center is hard to miss, whether he’s hoisting jumpers after practice, or pumping music in the locker room. While he hasn’t been available to speak to reporters on the record, he’s often spotted chatting up his teammates – the ones he thought he’d join on the court this season before he tore his ACL in August.“Obviously you hear him laughing right now,” Lakers forward Anthony Davis said on Monday morning, as peals of Cousins’ laughter cut through his morning press scrum. “So he’s just been a great guy for us, being around the team.”As the Lakers prepare to head to New Orleans on Tuesday for a Wednesday night tilt, Davis’ shadow looms large over the game, but so does Cousins’, albeit in a different light. Cousins’ troubled stretch of injuries started in January 2018, when he and Davis were All-Star starters and teammates with the Pelicans – and his return with Davis breathes fresh life into a stirring hypothetical.

Would it have changed anything about the way things played out in New Orleans for Davis?The Pelicans, of course, made the most of their time without Cousins. They advanced to the Western Conference semifinals led by Davis and another current Laker, Rajon Rondo, that spring before being eliminated by eventual champion Golden State. But even Davis still wonders how that would’ve played out if the Pelicans had both of their bigs at their disposal in the postseason.“We can only imagine what we could have done,” he said. “Me and him were definitely a force to reckon with. And having Jrue (Holiday) playing the way he was playing, and obviously Rondo leading the pack, it was something that we wish he could have stayed healthy and we could have made a run at something special.”Related Articles Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
