The Warriors have reclaimed the top spot in the Western Conference after winning three straight games, and they aren't even at full strength yet. The team is still playing without DeMarcus Cousins, who is working his way back from a torn Achilles.
It seems as if Cousins is almost ready to go however, as the star center is reportedly set to practice with the Warriors' G League affiliate on Monday as he nears his return to the court.
Cousins joined the Warriors on a one-year, $5.3 million contract which was purely based around trying to win a ring. His injury has prevented him from playing for the team thus far, but he should be back on the floor with his new teammates soon.

When Cousins comes back, it will be hard to imagine any team handling the Warriors in a seven-game series. While he will likely be eased back into game shape, Cousins is a formidable talent who will take the team to even greater heights than before and Warriors fans will be anxious to see how he plays alongside the four other All-Stars on the roster.
