Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins is reportedly expected to miss the remainder of the 2019 NBA playoffs, though there’s “faint optimism” he could return for the NBA Finals after getting injured in Game 2 of the team’s first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night.

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reported Cousins will undergo an MRI on Tuesday morning to determine whether the Finals are a realistic target date for a potential return. If the test shows a torn quadriceps, however, he’ll remain sidelined for the duration of the Dubs’ postseason run.
