DeMarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans and NBA All-Star Center tore his achilles in the final seconds against Houston Rockets. He suffered the non-contact injury with 12 seconds left to go in the game when he attempted to get his own rebound on a missed free throw.
Cousins had 15 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists before leaving, recording his second triple-double in the last three games. This is truly a tragedy for the NOLA Pelicans with such a hopeful season this year! How will they bounce back from this, and will they be motivated to trade Anthony Davis before the trade deadline?
And who will be his replacement for the 2018 NBA All-Star? I guess we will have to wait and find out!
