Sources: Demarcus Cousins Expected to Work Out with Los Angeles Lakers – Bleacher Report

News

Four-time NBA All-Star DeMarcus Cousins is expected to work out for the Los Angeles Lakers at some point next week, league sources tell Bleacher Report. The official date has yet to be determined, sources say.
He has been working out six days a week in Las Vegas. The free-agent center hopes to impress a Lakers franchise in evaluation mode. As of Jan. 5, teams are now allowed to sign players to 10-day contracts.
Cousins, an 11-year veteran, has been working tirelessly to earn a path back to the NBA after stints with the Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets last season. As the primary backup to the two-time MVP Nikola Jokic, Cousins averaged 8.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 13.9 minutes. He has a career statline of 19.6 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks.
The Lakers held a workout on Thursday for guard Tyler Dorsey, reported by Yahoo Sports.

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis, who is rehabbing a stress injury to his right foot, will be taking a significant step forward in a few days by testing out his foot on the court in an individual workout, league sources tell Bleacher report.
This is one of the assignments in the ramp-up process before Davis is cleared for contact drills and then ultimately given the green light to rejoin his teammates for practices.
Davis is progressing well with minimal pain, sources say.
With the emergence of Thomas Bryant in Davis’ absence, the Lakers are optimistic that they’ll be even better once whole and poised for a playoff push. The Lakers are 17-21, sitting 12th in the Western Conference standings.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Nicolas Batum is recovering from a left ankle sprain and if he continues to improve, he is targeting a return date of Sunday at home against the Atlanta Hawks, league sources tell Bleacher Report.
If that target is met, the veteran swingman will have missed only two games.
I personally want to extend my condolences to 12-year NBA veteran Tristan Thompson and his family. He lost his mother, Andrea Thompson, unexpectedly on Thursday. She was his everything.

I was able to meet her a handful of times during my days covering the Cleveland Cavaliers, and she was always such a warm soul to encounter. May she rest in peace. My prayers are with Tristan.
