DeMarcus Cousins seems to be nearing his return to the court.

While discussing the big man, Golden State coach Steve Kerr said Cousins has made "big strides" in his rehab and conditioning over the past week.

Multiple reports surfaced Tuesday evening claiming that the team aims for Cousins's debut to be on January 18 on the road against the Los Angeles Clippers.

However, Cousins was still recovering from a knee injury he had suffered while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans past year. "I would say the last two scrimmages that he's had".

Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins, a Mobile, Ala. native himself, had reason to be, too. He had considered returning January 16 against the visiting Pelicans before he and the Warriors decided on the January 18 return, a source said. Below we will examine how Cousins joining the team is both good and bad for the defending champs.

Despite being a six-time All-Star, Cousins was only signed to a one-year, $5.3 million deal over the offseason.

Cousins has been fully taking part in Warriors practices for several weeks after getting a few full-contact practices in with the G-League Santa Cruz Warriors late last month. The Warriors already have a lineup with four all-stars, including Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Kevin Durant.

The Warriors are now 26-14 on the season and sit second in the NBA's Western Conference. Kerr's side will take on the New York Knicks on Tuesday night and will welcome the Chicago Bulls on Friday before going on a mini road trip to Denver and then Dallas before returning home.
