DeMarcus Cousins suffered the ACL injury while doing workouts in Las Vegas and this injury is being claimed as career-threatening for De Marcus Cousins. Basketball champions have not been able to get a deal as a free agent which makes them more vulnerable. Over that with these injury risks, the slim chances of playing an NBA match has got even slimmer.
From the Lakers point of view, this injury is the worst possible start they would have wanted ahead of a pressure-packed season. DeMarcus Cousins is a man with great heart and hopefully, he will fight with his injury and come out of it stronger. Point to be noted is whether this time he will be able to replicate what he has shown for years as ACL injury is expected to take nine to twelve months time for recovery.

So it remains to be seen whether DeMarcus can fight out his injury or injury will become a career-ending injury for him.
