It gets worse.

After diving for a ball midway through the first quarter, DeMarcus Cousins limped his way to the locker room. And there is a fear that it is serious:

There's significant concern that DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a torn left quad, but there won't be complete certainty until his MRI on Tuesday, league sources tell ESPN. The hope is that it's just a strain.
