Warriors reportedly hoping center can return January 18 vs. Clippers

Tyson Chandler Considered Warriors Before Signing With Lakers

DeMarcus Cousins seems to be nearing his return to the court.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday that Cousins' return was getting closer but wouldn't confirm a specific date.

Cousins plans to make his season debut on January 18 against the Clippers in Los Angeles, according to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. Cousins' presence is especially significant considering that Jones suffered what probably is a season-ending pectoral injury during a loss at the Detroit Pistons on December 1. "I just love the style of play that they play with, and so I heavily considered that and I asked them if they would like me there, and they said 'Yeah'".

Cousins's return to the court comes at a much-needed time for the Warriors (26-14, 2nd in the West), who are now bone-dry at the center position.

Cousins has made major progress in recent weeks.

If weren't for LeBron James, Cousins would have been this summer's biggest free-agent signing, as the All-Star center inked a one-year deal with the two-time defending champions in July.

That trip would be the days after the Warriors face the Clippers on January 18 at Staples Center and then play the Lakers on January 21 at the same venue.

I can't wait to integrate him into our team.

The Warriors are back in action Tuesday night as they host the New York Knicks at Oracle Arena. The Warriors have players with huge personalities like Kevin Durant and Draymond Green who ironically got into a dispute with one another during a heated moment earlier this season. He's such a handful down there, and with his ability to play-make.
