DeMarcus Cousins exited Game 2 midway through the first quarter.

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins made an early exit from Monday’s Game 2 against the LA Clippers, suffering a left quad injury while tumbling after a loose ball with 8 1/2 minutes remaining in the first quarter.

Cousins wasn’t contacted on the play, and immediately stayed down as the Clippers corralled possession and pivoted upcourt in transition. He immediately flagged the training staff and began heading toward the locker room, walking gingerly on the injured leg.

The team updated his status shortly afterward, announcing he wouldn’t return and will be undergoing an MRI within a day’s time. Cousins had posted two points, two rebounds and an assist in three minutes prior to his exit. In 30 games this season, Cousins averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.5 blocks in 25.7 minutes.
