Cousins tears left Achilles, awaiting MRI

DeMarcus Cousins reportedly suffers torn Achilles Paul George replaces injured DeMarcus Cousins on Team LeBron
| 28 January, 2018, 01:12

Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry also admitted to reporters that they were "scared" about the injury, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

"I feel terrible for him", Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said (ESPN). He's one of the guys I usually watch and try to learn [from] and get better.

Cousins went down in the final seconds after pursuing his own free throw and had to be helped off the court. In eight seasons with the Kings and Pelicans, Cousins has averaged 21.5 points, 11 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.2 blocks.

The loss of Cousins would be a big blow to the Pelicans, who were able to win 7 out of their 8 games and climbed to 6th place of the Western Conference standings. After undergoing surgery to fix a torn hamstring before training camp, Hill has yet to play this season but has targeted a February return.

New Orleans Pelicans All-Star big man DeMarcus Cousins is likely done for the season. Including games Cousins missed after the trade, New Orleans went 13-17 in 2016-17 when Davis started at center, a slightly superior record. He's been an absolute monster, stuffing the stat sheet easily and in a way we've never seen before.

New Orleans next plays Sunday afternoon at home against the Clippers.


Former Mason County and United Kingdom star Darius Miller hit six three-pointers, including one with 1:52 left to give the Pelicans a five-point lead, and finished with 20 points.

"He's one of our key players and it's always tough, but we've got to keep pushing on", he said.

Cousins was recently voted in as a starter for the forthcoming All-Star game in Los Angeles.

After just being announced as an starter for the 2018 National Basketball Association ll-Star game, bad news strikes where it always hurts most: the injury front. Whether or not there was a causative link between the Achilles tear/recovery and the immediately following knee injury can never be proven with certainty, but what is known is that Bryant was never the same again.

Now, it will be hard for New Orleans (27-21; No. 6 seed) to even make the playoffs. "Tonight we took a step in the right direction by having a lead, giving it up, but then finding a way to win a game".
