Lakers' Cousins has torn ACL, may miss season

Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins could miss the entire season after team doctors confirmed he has a torn ACL in his left knee -- his third serious leg injury in the last year and a half.

Adrian Wojnarowski NBA 

Test results are conclusive today in Los Angeles: Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a torn left ACL, agent Jeff Schwartz tells ESPN.

Bobby Marks ESPN 

The Los Angeles Lakers can file for the Disabled Player Exception (DPE) on DeMarcus Cousins. However, because Cousins salary is only $3.5M, the DPE would only be worth $1.75M. The NBA would need to deem Cousins out until June 15 for the exception to be granted. The Lakers currently have the veteran minimum exception and an open roster spot available.
