NEW YORK — DeMarcus Cousins isn't even playing for Golden State yet and he's been ejected from a game.
Cousins was thrown out in the first quarter of the Warriors' game against the New York Knicks on Friday night (Saturday, Manila time).
It was unclear what happened with the volatile center, who was sitting in street clothes on the Golden State bench not far from where Stephen Curry had made a 3-pointer on a shot where it appeared he may have also drawn contact.
As play resumed following a timeout with 2:28 remaining in the period, it was announced that Cousins had been assessed a technical foul during the break, and then subsequently ejected.
Cousins is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon. He took part in his first practice with the Warriors on Thursday, but there is still no timetable for his return to action.
