An arrest warrant was issued for Cousins (knee) in connection with the misdemeanor domestic violence charge he's facing in Mobile, Ala., ESPN.com reports.

More specifically, Cousins is being charged with third-degree harassing communications. A former girlfriend, Christy West, is seeking a restraining order against Cousins following a recent argument related to their seven-year-old son. Cousins has thus far declined comment on the matter, while the Lakers and NBA issued statements Tuesday indicating that both parties were investing the allegations. Cousins, who signed a one-year deal with Los Angeles earlier this summer, is expected to miss most -- if not all -- of the 2019-20 season after tearing his ACL in a workout earlier this month.
