Cousins (Achilles) was assigned to the G League on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Cousins will join the Santa Cruz Warriors as he moves into the final stages of his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon, which has sidelined him for the better part of the last calendar year. Cousins is still without a firm timetable to return to NBA action, but he'll likely begin practicing with Santa Cruz this week and could appear in a few G League games as a tune-up before making his way back to the Warriors. The general expectation is that if all goes well, Cousins could make his Warriors debut sometime shortly after Christmas.
Cousins appears to be nearing the final stages of his recovery from surgery to repair a torn left Achilles' tendon and remains hopeful to make his Golden State debut at some point after Christmas. The Warriors have yet to pinpoint a target date and likely won't until assessing his health during his on-court workouts, but his move to the G League hints that he's likely ready for some full-contact, full-court work. There's a possibility Cousins will appear in some games for Santa Cruz before rejoining the NBA team, but that hasn't been formally decided yet.
Cousins is targeting a return to game action around Christmas, though the organization seems determined to bring him along slowly, possibly having him play in multiple G League contests. More information on his recovery should continue to arrive as he reaches various milestones.

Cousins (Achilles) is targeting a return to game action sometime after Christmas, Logan Murdock of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Cousins met with the Warriors' training staff last week with hopes of being cleared for the team's upcoming five-game road trip, however, his return date was ultimately pushed back in order to allow the big man to fully regain his conditioning prior to rejoining the lineup. The 28-year-old hasn't suffered any setbacks and recently resumed scrimmaging, though he remains without a concrete return date as the Warriors continue to handle him with care. Cousins will be reevaluated Tuesday.
