After just being announced as an starter for the 2018 NBA ll-Star game, bad news strikes where it always hurts most: the injury front.
And for Pelicans' Center DeMarcus Cousins, news just broke that he may have suffered one of the worst sports injuries of all. In a heart-breaking report by Adrian Wojnarowski, DeMarcus Cousins will miss the remainder of the season with a torn left Achilles.
For the Pelicans, it's a huge blow to their playoff hopes and puts a big burden on their plans in the future. For DeMarcus, it is an injury that will impact him for the rest of his career.
We'll see what will be the next move for the Pelicans and who will replace Cousins in the starting lineup but it's a really big problem for them after they have 8-2 in the last 10 games.
Cousins is a free agent this summer, and he has an amazing season with 25.4 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.6 blocks per game.
