Cousins signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal with Los Angeles in July and his latest injury will impact a Lakers team that seemed poised for a big-time resurgence.
The initial fear is that Cousins has a torn ACL, but nothing is expected to be known for certain until he undergoes further tests in Los Angeles on Thursday, sources told ESPN.
Cousins was signed to a one-year deal in the offseason and looked poised to take over as the starting center.
If the fears are confirmed, Cousins would nearly certainly miss much - if not all - of the coming season.

Cousins previously sustained an Achilles tear in January 2018 while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans. In his nine National Basketball Association seasons, Cousins has averaged 21.2 points and 10.9 rebounds a game.
Cousins hit an uncertain free agent period this summer, but in the Lakers he found a familiar team. Kerr also pointed out that the two games Golden State won against Toronto in last season's NBA Finals, Games 2 and 5, were not coincidentally games where Cousins played particularly well for the Warriors. He could have signed a contract well north of $100 million, but after the injuries had to settle for $9 million in total across two years.
It's surely a blow to both Cousins and the Lakers. Then he suffered a torn quad muscle in the first round of the playoffs and did not return until the NBA Finals. My goal is to play 82 games this season. When healthy, he is one of the best centers in the league and there was excitement about him re-establishing himself in Los Angeles.
