DeMarcus Cousins Out For Season With Torn Achilles Tendon

  • Paul George replaces injured De Marcus Cousins in All Star game

It is possible for the Pelicans to make a playoff run.

Cousins needed to be carried off the floor by teammates in the aftermath.

"We're scared about it", Pelicans Coach Alvin Gentry told reporters after the game.

For New Orleans, the injury has put a significant dent in a season in which it expected to be a strong postseason threat behind Cousins' most complete season.

According to Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania, an MRI revelaed Cousins suffered a full rupture of his left Achilles tendon. "I'm definitely going to pray for him". I feel disgusting for him, with everything he's tried to do this year for us, and the improvements in all areas he's made, on and off the court, has just been great. The duo of Cousins and Davis is the key to everything they want to do, and they were starting to come good.

"I hope it's not anything that severe, but when it's an Achillies, you never know. Our guys feel awful". He averaged 15.3 points and 3.3 assists per game as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans, where the former Indiana Hoosiers star missed an average of 29 games per year due to various injuries before joining James Harden in Clutch City. It would provide the ultimate difference.

A fourth straight victory and seventh victory in eight games, coming against one of the NBA's top teams, should have been reason to celebrate Friday night. Anderson went scoreless in 14 minutes in the loss, with Houston getting outscored by 20 points with him on the court.

After a mediocre start, the Pelicans appeared to be on the rise with Davis and Cousins coalescing. We're just tapping into it. That's the tough part. On the other hand, the injury could theoretically give cover for all involved parties, providing Cousins with motivation to re-sign this summer in search of a second chance and buying time and trust for Gentry and Demps given how well things unfolded over the past three months.

Together, the trio of James, Cousins and Davis would be the most talented frontcourt assembled in National Basketball Association history. The guard set his feet, launched undefended and missed the goal and rim entirely for an airball. But the Rockets were not going to go away easily, and bit by bit chipped away at the lead throughout the second half. Khris Middleton added 21 points in the Bucks' second game, both wins, since coach Jason Kidd was sacked Monday. "That's all we can do". We can't keep our heads down and pray.
