Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Slated for surgery Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins is expected to undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday to repair a ruptured left Achilles tendon, Will Guillory of the Times-Picayune reports.

After being named an All-Star starter following a fantastic start to the 2017-18 season, Cousins suffered a devastating Achilles injury that will cost him the rest of his campaign. He's slated to undergo surgery Wednesday, following which we should get official confirmation on a timetable for his recovery. As of now, Dante Cunningham will be starting in his place, but doesn't carry much fantasy value despite the promotion. However, the Pelicans were linked to Nikola Mirotic and almost secured him in a trade earlier Tuesday, which would mark a drastic upgrade from Cunningham. Look out for some potential moves from the Pelicans prior to the trade deadline to help make up for the tough loss of Cousins.

Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Team confirms ruptured Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pelicans confirmed Saturday that Cousins sustained a ruptured left Achilles tendon during Friday's win over the Rockets.

The news was reported by a number of sources Friday night, and a subsequent MRI on the tendon confirmed the diagnosis. Cousins, who was with the team at Saturday's film session, will face a lengthy recovery process that could span anywhere from six to 10 months, putting his status for the start of next season very much in jeopardy. The All-Star starter had been in the midst of arguably his best NBA season, holding averages of 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.6 blocks, while knocking down 2.2 three pointers per game. He'll now turn his attention toward rehabbing the Achilles tendon as he preps for unrestricted free agency this summer.

Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Tears Achilles, out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins has suffered a torn Achilles tendon and will miss the remainder of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

This is obviously tough news for Cousins, as he was having arguably his best season as a pro before suffering the injury. As a result, Anthony Davis will be asked to carry even more of the offensive workload, and Dante Cunningham figures to be the primary beneficiary in terms of minutes. Cousins will now focus on his recovery before he tests free agency this offseason.

Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Suffers Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

There is fear in the Pelicans' organization that Cousins suffered a potentially serious Achilles injury in Friday's victory over the Rockets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Cousins went down in the final seconds of regulation and subsequently held on to his lower leg in pain before getting helped to the locker room. The initial diagnosis reportedly does not look good, but there will be more clarity once he undergoes an MRI. Dante Cunningham would be the prime beneficiary in terms of minutes should Cousins indeed miss a significant amount of time. Expect an update once more information is made available.

Cousins had to be helped to the locker room after suffering an apparent leg injury during the final seconds of regulation in Friday's game against the Rockets.

It did not look good for Cousins, as he appeared to be reaching for his Achilles before he got helped to the locker room. Expect an update on his status once the team provides more clarity on the situation.
