DeMarcus Cousins (knee) posts a double-double in return to the Pelicans' lineup

New Orleans Pelicans forward/center DeMarcus Cousins (knee) went 7-of-14 from the field on Sunday, finishing with 15 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals in 31 minutes of action as the Pelicans beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 129-104.

What It Means:

This was Cousins' return after a one-game absence from a knee injury, and he should be available once again on Tuesday when the Pelicans take on the Memphis Grizzlies. Cousins is averaging 20.2 points, 11.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.6 steals in 32.3 minutes of action through 11 contests since being acquired by New Orleans.

Cousins finished Sunday's win with a shaky -3.9 nERD, per numberFire Live, though he remains in the NBA's top-50 on the season with a 3.9 nERD.
