The Pelicans will play the rest of the season without their star big man after DeMarcus Cousins tore his left Achilles tendon trying to rebound his own free throw miss with just ten seconds remaining in New Orleans’s game against Houston tonight.

Cousins came down awkwardly in his attempt to recover the loose ball resulting from his missed free throw while the Pelicans held a four-point lead in the final seconds.
