If you think you have noticed the Sacramento Kings All-Star big man DeMarcus Cousins walking funny at times this season you weren’t imagining it. Cousins has foot problems that will need to be dealt with this summer as CSN Bay Area reporter James Ham noticed.
“I have some decisions to make before the end of the season. I’ve got to get some procedures done on my body — on my feet,” Cousins said. “I’ve been playing with tendinitis in my feet all season. That’s why you see me walking up and down funny.”
Ham says Cousins is planning to undergo Platelet Rich Therapy (PRP) on his feet and possibly shockwave treatment as well. The procedure is not considered surgery and takes less than an hour to perform. The recovery for this type of treatment is roughly 4-6 weeks.
Cousins hopes to be ready in time to compete for a roster spot with the USA Men’s National Basketball Team and play at the Olympic Games in Rio this summer.
