News: Cousins (knee) participated in all of Team USA practice Tuesday, NBA.com reports. Impact: Cousins, who missed Saturday's friendly versus Brazil, remains on track to play in Wednesday's exhibition against the Dominican Republic. While he may not be at 100 percent, the bone bruise in his knee has healed to the point that he's no longer hampered. The big man remains in competition with Mason Plumlee and Andre Drummond for a spot on the final roster that will head to Spain for the FIBA World Cup, which begins August 30.(RotoWire, )

News: Cousins (knee) is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Dominican Republic, Sean Cunningham of News10 Sacramento reports. Impact: This is obviously good news for Cousins, since it means he should be fully healthy by the time the NBA season rolls around. He has a good chance of making the final roster for Team USA for the FIBA Basketball World Cup, but it's still a good idea to keep an eye on him moving forward to make sure his knee isn't bothering him.(RotoWire, )

News: Cousins (knee) will undergo an MRI and will not play in Team USA's exhibition against Brazil on Saturday, Cowbell Kingdom reports. Impact: Cousins left Team USA practice with an undisclosed knee injury and received treatment on the sidelines. He left practice under his own power, and the MRI is believed to be mostly precautionary. Regardless, Team USA will not rush Cousins back and more will be known following the MRI. Without Cousins in action Saturday, Andre Drummond and Mason Plumlee should see increased action.(RotoWire, )

News: Cousins has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee, leaving him day-to-day, CSN Chicago reports. Impact: Cousins injured the knee during Thursday's practice with Team USA, which spurred an MRI to learn the extent of the injury. He's already been ruled out for Saturday's warmup against Brazil, and any further time away from the court could hinder his chances of making the final roster for the upcoming Basketball World Cup. In any case, his absence aids the prospects of Andre Drummond and Mason Plumlee behind starting center Anthony Davis.(RotoWire, )

News: Cousins suffered a right knee injury while practicing with Team USA on Thursday, Yahoo! Sports reports. Impact: While the extent of the injury is not yet known, Cousins had to be helped off the floor. He underwent treatment on the sideline and was seen icing the knee. That would seem to suggest it's nothing overly serious, but an update from Team USA should be forthcoming. If it turns out to be something that will keep him sidelined for an extended period of time, both Andre Drummond and Mason Plumlee's chances of making the FIBA World Cup team increase.(RotoWire, )
