The Los Angeles Lakers could be without newly-acquired DeMarcus Cousins for the upcoming NBA season.

The six-time All-Star has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee suffered during a workout in Las Vegas.

It's the latest injury for Cousins, who missed most of last season while rehabbing a torn Achilles and sat out much of the Warriors' playoff run after tearing a quad muscle.

The centre appeared in 30 games for Golden State last season, averaging 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds.
