OKLAHOMA CITY -- Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins will have an MRI on his sore right foot, the team announced Sunday.

Cousins, who is listed as questionable for Monday's game, left Saturday's win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the fourth quarter with what was initially listed as a sore right ankle.

With one big man banged up, veteran center Andrew Bogut's return to the Warriors is timely. He will join the team in San Antonio and could make his season debut in Monday's game against the Spurs.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr didn't sound too concerned about Cousins' injury Saturday, but Bogut's appearance in San Antonio comes as a bit of a surprise in that Kerr said earlier this week that he didn't want Bogut to have to fly across the country after flying across the world from Sydney -- where he just finished his season in Australia's National Basketball League.

Bogut spent four seasons with the Warriors before re-signing with them for the stretch run last week. The Warriors have a back-to-back in San Antonio and Minnesotaon Monday and Tuesday.

Warriors star forward Kevin Durant is expected to play Monday after missing the last week because of a right ankle injury.
