Hooooo, boy. Sad Woj Bomb, people.

Can Boogie ever catch a break? After missing out on major free agent money when he went down with a busted Achilles in New Orleans, DeMarcus Cousins famously landed with the Golden State Warriors for mid-level money... only to tear his quad early in the 2019 NBA Playoffs and derail his chances at a max deal once again.

And now, as a new member of the Los Angeles Lakers, the injury bug has bitten Boogie yet again. Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the veteran big man may have picked up a knee injury while working out in Las Vegas.

This is absolutely not what Laker fans wanted to hear.

The chance to reunite with former Pelicans teammate Anthony Davis on a team that also happens to feature LeBron James is a dream come true for Cousins, whose Warriors fell short of glory in this summer's NBA Finals at the hands of the Toronto Raptors. Hope was meant to spring eternal in 2019-20, but depending on the severity of this apparent setback, that may all have to be put on hold.

Fingers ought to be crossed for this guy. At some point, his injury luck simply has to change for the better.
