Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Struggles in loss to Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (ankle) finished with two points (0-7 FG, 0-5 3PT, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and four assists across 16 minutes in Monday's 125-120 loss to Chicago.

Cousins endured a tough night in his return from a one-game absence, failing to hit a shot while scoring in the single digits for the eighth time in nine appearances this season. The peripheral stats were nice, but Cousins didn't contribute anything on the defensive end, and his inefficient shooting dropped his field-goal percentage to 30 percent for the season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (ankle) has been cleared to play Monday against Chicago.

The big man will return from a one-game absence due to a sore right ankle. In his last appearance Thursday against the Spurs, Cousins played 18 minutes and finished with nine points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Should return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (ankle) is probable for Monday's game at Chicago, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

The 30-year-old missed Saturday's contest with a sore right ankle, but his absence is expected to be limited to one game. Cousins should return to his role off the bench against the Bulls, assuming he's available Monday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (ankle) is out Saturday against the Spurs, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Cousins will sit Saturday due to right ankle soreness. P.J. Tucker, Jae'Sean Tate and Kenyon Martin are candidates to see more minutes.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Spurs due to right ankle soreness, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

Cousins has emerged from Thursday's win over the Spurs with an ankle injury that's expected to prevent him from playing Saturday. Assuming he sits out, P.J. Tucker, Jae'Sean Tate and Kenyon Martin are candidates to see more minutes.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Posts double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins notched 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal across 18 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's loss against the Lakers.

Cousins was ejected in Sunday's game against the Lakers, but he made his presence felt in this one and registered his first double-double of the season. Cousins scored more than 10 points for the first time in the current campaign and has yet to log more than 25 minutes in a game, but this performance could fetch him a slight uptick in terms of his playing time.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Ejected from Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins was ejected from Sunday's game against the Lakers, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Cousins was issued a Flagrant 2 foul early in the second quarter Sunday after catching LeBron James in the face on a block attempt. Prior to his early departure, Cousins logged six points (2-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal over eight minutes.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Fades late in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins scored nine points (2-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, four blocks, two steals and an assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to the Pacers.

The veteran big seemed headed for his first double-double of the season by dropping nine points and 10 boards in the first half, but Cousins went cold after the break. Christian Wood (knee) isn't expected to miss much time, but if he remains out for Friday's home game against the Magic, Cousins would likely draw another start.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Starting in place of Wood
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins will start Wednesday's game against the Pacers, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.

With Christian Wood out due to a sore knee, Cousins will make his first start of the season and his first in a Rockets uniform. The big man was tossed from Monday's game in the first quarter, limiting him to just three minutes of action. Prior to that, he'd played 11 and 14 minutes, respectively, in the Rockets' first two games. Expect Cousins to see a larger workload Wednesday.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Tossed from Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins was ejected from Monday's game against the Mavericks after receiving two technical fouls, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cousins picked up his first technical early in the contest after shoving former teammate Willie Cauley-Stein, and he later received his second after shouting at an official. He'll finish with four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3PT), three rebounds and two blocks in three minutes.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Plays 14 minutes in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins had eight points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3PT, 1-2 FT) and three assists in Thursday's win over the Kings.

It was the Rockets debut for Cousins, who was held out of the first two games of the season due to the NBA's health and safety protocols. Cousins played just 14 minutes off the bench, but that number will likely rise as the former All-Star works his way back into game shape. Cousins did not appear in a single game last season while recovering from a torn left ACL.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Set to make Rockets debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (COVID-19) will make his Rockets debut Thursday night against the Kings, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.

Both Cousins and John Wall were ruled out of the Rockets' first two games due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, but the pair will return to action Thursday. Cousins will likely come off the bench behind Christian Wood, but he should fill an integral role for the Rockets after an encouraging preseason.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins is listed as out for Saturday's game against Portland.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Faces week-long quarantine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (ankle) faces a seven-day quarantine due to the NBA's contact-tracing protocol, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Cousins tested negative for the virus Wednesday, but he and John Wall were close contacts with an infected person. Both players will be required to quarantine for seven days. Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers is in jeopardy due to the number of Houston players in COVID-19 protocol.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Tests negative for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (ankle) tested negative for COVID-19 on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Cousins was part of the Rockets' contract tracing after a group of players reportedly received haircuts at a location away from the team facility. Cousins' negative test is certainly a positive sign, but he remains questionable to play in Wednesday's opener against the Thunder. On the league's official injury report, Cousins is listed as questionable due to a sprained right ankle.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Opening night status in jeopardy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins is expected to miss Wednesday's opener against the Thunder due to COVID-19 contact tracing, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Charania lists Cousins and John Wall as two players likely to be held out Wednesday, and he notes that "possibly more" Rockets could end up sidelined. With James Harden's status also in jeopardy, the Rockets could be left extremely shorthanded on Opening Night.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Sitting preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins, along with John Wall, will rest during Thursday's preseason finale against the Spurs, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cousins appeared in all three previous Rockets preseason contests, seeing 17.7 minutes per game and averaging 10.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.7 blocks and 1.3 assists. After sitting Thursday, he'll be fresh for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Thunder.

Rockets' DeMarcus Cousins: Scores 10 points with six boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins registered 10 points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two blocks in 17 minutes during Sunday's 104-91 loss against the Bulls.

Similar to John Wall, Cousins has looked good over his first two postseason appearances but what matters the most with him is to keep him as healthy as possible before the start of the regular season. It's only been two games, but Cousins has shown glimpses of having enough involvement to be one of the Rockets' most important players on offense once the regular season begins.
