Warriors C DeMarcus Cousins ejected for bizarre reason

Steve Kerr: DeMarcus Cousins to Play 'David West Role'

Cousins has not yet officially suited up for the Warriors and has only recently begun participating in practices as he recovers from an achilles injury.

That didn't stop him from hitting the Madison Square Garden showers early on Friday night.

Foster clarified that they only assessed one technical foul because Cousins was not active in the game, and that it was "more so the way of which he stated what he stated" that got him ejected.

"Kanter and Cousins were both warned prior to the ejection about talking to the bench", Foster told reporters after the game.

DeMarcus Cousins was ejected from a game that he wasn't even playing in.

Steve Kerr says that he hasn't had the chance to speak with DeMarcus Cousins after his ejection, but heard that he'd been jawing with Enes Kanter. "Cousins took exception to the ruling and during the timeout he was ejected for one technical foul for unsportsmanlike conduct".

Since he has yet to play a game, the four-time All-Star had the technical and ejection as his first career statistics as a Warrior.

The All-Star big man is now recovering from an Achilles tendon injury and he should soon be cleared to participate in team activities.

"I think you'll see us use him in that David West role from the last couple years, when David anchored the second unit", Kerr said.
