Just as the Golden State Warriors put up their best outing of the season against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday, they're ready to welcome DeMarcus Cousins into the fold.

The center is on track to make his debut Friday against the Los Angeles Clippers, Dubs coach Steve Kerr told The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

Draymond Green backed that up Wednesday with a post on Instagram.


Cousins hasn't played an NBA game since Jan. 26 of last season when he suffered a ruptured left Achilles as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans.

"More than anything, we're just excited for DeMarcus," Kerr said late Tuesday, according to the New York Times' Scott Cacciola. "It's going to take him some time to get his rhythm."

The Warriors retook first place in the Western Conference with Tuesday's blowout win in Denver, setting an NBA record for points scored in a first quarter.

Kerr said last week that Cousins will start at the five upon his return.
