Pelicans star DeMarcus Cousins tears Achilles tendon

Pelicans star DeMarcus Cousins tears Achilles tendon

LeBron James and Gordon Hayward were among the National Basketball Association stars to send well wishes to DeMarcus Cousins after the New Orleans Pelicans center suffered what appears to be a season-ending Achilles injury.

The New Orleans Pelicans appeared to be finding their groove, extending their season-long winning streak to 5 in Friday's 115-113 win over the Rockets.

Cousins recorded a triple-double of 15 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists against the Rockets prior to his injury, continuing his stunning season.

"We're scared about it", Pelicans Coach Alvin Gentry told reporters after the game. So it will be interesting to see how New Orleans plays Houston, considering the Rockets have won 9 of the last 11 meetings between these two. New Orleans sits in sixth in the West and have won four straight games after Friday's win.

For New Orleans, the possibility of the franchise's first playoff trip since 2015 is now in serious jeopardy. The Spurs lost for just the fourth time at home this season. 40 percent of their 3s this season with Davis on the bench and 32.8 percent when Cousins rests.

Cousins is expected to have season-ending surgery as soon as possible.

IMFA is into mining, ferro alloys and power in Orissa and is owned by Panda's family. The party said that in 2014, Panda drew an "annual salary and allowance of Rs".

Seldom used Asik seems to be the only player whose contract they'd have real difficulty moving.

What does it do to the Pelicans, who had looked like a playoff lock but are just three games from falling out of the playoffs completely?

Chris Paul scored 38 points before fouling out in the final seconds and almost led Houston back from a 21-point, third-quarter deficit. "We were just figuring it out, that's the tough part".

It was an electric touch to the Pelicans' hottest stretch of the season, polishing off their seventh in over the past eight games. The setback will also make it more hard for the Pelicans to make the playoffs.

Davis made two free throws and Miller hit a 3-pointer, but the Rockets evened things for the last time as Harden made a jumper and Ariza hit a 3-pointer. The second clip shows Cousins getting carried off the floor. Right now, the center will have to rehab and get back to form from the injury.

Cousins has played in all 48 of the Pelicans' games this season, and he has dealt with very few injury issues throughout his career.
