Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a possible knee injury and will undergo further testing in Los Angeles on Thursday, league sources told ESPN.

The four-time All-Star is expected to meet with Lakers team physicians, sources said.

Cousins, 29, was working out in Las Vegas on Monday when he had to leave the court after what one source described as “bumping knees” with another player.

He suffered an Achilles tendon tear while playing for New Orleans during the 2017-18 season, and he missed several weeks with Golden State Warriors last season with a quadriceps injury.

Cousins, who has averaged 21.2 points and 10.8 rebounds over his nine NBA seasons, signed a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Lakers in July. He’s part of a Lakers team expected to be among the NBA’s elite this season.
