After the Lakers’ practice, coach Frank Vogel answered a few questions by the media. Coach was asked what he thinks about DeMarcus Cousins coming back for the playoffs.
“It’s a big challenge, it’s not ideal. That’s why we keep our expectations tempered. Not ruling it out, but obviously to come back out of a a long stint of being out in a rehab like he’s [DeMarcus Cousins] been, for your first action being in a playoffs atmosphere or near playoffs atmosphere, if it was towards the end of the season, that’s not the ideal situation. But it is something that he encountered before. He did it in Golden state. It something that we’ll cross that bridge, when we come to it,” Vogel said.
