DeMarcus Cousins Injury: Pelicans Star Reportedly Out For Season With Torn Achilles

DeMarcus Cousins Injury: Pelicans Star Reportedly Out For Season With Torn Achilles

"It was a great win for the team, but that's a huge piece of the team". Overall as a team, the Pelicans were 9-3 during the month of January. He attempted to rebound his missed shot but landed hard on his left foot. An MRI after the game confirmed that was the case.

If those trends hold, the Pelicans are likely to spend the rest of the season in a predictable two-stage rhythm: looking competitive and perhaps even fearsome when Davis is on the court and then descending into a tire fire during his 12 or so minutes of rest.

Head coach Alvin Gentry spoke to the media after the game.

And for Cousins himself, the future suddenly got a lot bleaker. That's the tough part. So we've just got to keep going. "We've got to keep going and keep finding a way to win".

In Friday's game, Cousins scored 15 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and handed out 11 assists before suffering his injury. I mean, next guy up, honestly.

KNICKS 107, SUNS 85 • In Phoenix, Enes Kanter scored 15 of his 20 points in the first quarter and NY never trailed in ending its longest road trip of the season with a 107-85 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Friday.

But, the Rockets wouldn't go away.

A layup by Luc Mbah a Moute tied the game up at 104-104 with 2:34 left to play.

DeMarcus Cousins suffered what appears to be a significant injury on Friday night. He's the only player ever to average 25-12-5 while making at least two threes a game.

Chris Paul scored 38 points before fouling out in the final seconds and almost led Houston back from a 21-point, third-quarter deficit.

Cousins and the Pelicans have enjoyed success on the court, a burgeoning partnership along with Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, and optimism on both sides about re-signing in July.

Kent Bazemore led Atlanta with 26 points, and Taurean Prince added 21.

The Pelicans have won seven of their past eight games to climb to sixth in the Western Conference standings with a 27-21 record. The most obvious candidate for a spot is Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George, a frontcourt player (albeit admittedly a very different one) was quite a significant snub in the first place.

Trail Blazers 107, Mavericks 93: Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum combined for 49 points and Portland broke things open in the fourth quarter en route to a win over Dallas.
