There is always the possibility that Cousins will continue his ways of old and bring drama into the locker room with his antics on the court.

While discussing the big man, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said Cousins has made "big strides" in his rehab and conditioning over the past week.

The Golden State Warriors have had a rockier season than most would've expected but they could be back to their regular dominance with the return of All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins.

Cousins has been practising for the last couple weeks and participated in a full practice on Monday as he continues to make his way back from a torn Achilles tendon that ended his season prematurely previous year.

"I would say the last two scrimmages that he's had", Kerr said.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that DeMarcus Cousins is set to make his season debut around next weekend. Specifically, the target date that is being thrown around in the newswire is January 18, when the Warriors make trip to Los Angeles.

I can't wait to integrate him into our team. They don't have the luxury of getting Cousins the minutes he needs to get back into the shape of things - especially if the Warriors still haven't secured the top spot in the West. The team plays against the Clippers on January 18 and the Lakers on January 21.

DeMarcus Cousins #0 of the Golden State Warriors warms up against the Sacramento Kings on December 14, 2018 at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California.

"It's exciting", Klay Thompson told reporters after dropping 43 points, on just four dribbles, in the 122-95 dismantling of the Knicks on Tuesday night. He's such a handful down there, and with his ability to play-make.
