Golden State Warriors big man DeMarcus Cousins has been attacking his recovery after missing a large part of the season with an Achilles injury, now seemingly putting in work to get back into his normal playing shape.
The new addition to the Warriors star-studded roster showed off his handles in a recent workout as part of his Instagram story, moving swiftly from side to side on his way to the basket.
Cousins has showed plenty of shooting drills, but this particular one will have Dub Nation hyped for his awaited return.

The 6-foot-11, 270-pound big man was facing a likely return window of late December through January, but it looks like his recovery might be more than just meeting the right schedule, already able to showcase the lateral movement to get around his defenders.
Boogie won’t be needed until the Warriors reach the postseason, and even then, they might not even need him at an All-Star level — likely only needing to incorporate him and create some chemistry before the playoffs start.
If Cousins can move around like he does in this video, it should spell real problems for the rest of the NBA, as it gives Golden State a dimension they haven’t had before through the last four years of dominance.
