WATCH: Pelicans’ DeMarcus Cousins Out For the Season After Tearing Achilles in Win Against Rockets

Adrian Wojnarowski joins SportsCenter to discuss DeMarcus Cousins’ season-ending Achilles injury and the impact it has on the New Orleans Pelicans.


Cousins suffered the noncontact injury with about 12 seconds left in Friday’s 115-113 win over the Rockets when he attempted to rebound his own missed free throw by poking the ball away from Houston’s Trevor Ariza. After landing hard on his left leg, Cousins hopped a couple of times on his right foot and then collapsed to the court when he attempted to put pressure on his left foot again.
He needed assistance from teammates to exit the court.
