After the game, Pelicans All-Star power forward Anthony Davis spoke about his injury and how the team will have to regroup to fight through his absence. New Orleans has won seven of their last eight games, including victories over the Blazers, Celtics, and Rockets, but that all might be irrelevant soon.
The Pelicans were looking like a formidable playoff team, now sitting in sixth place in the Western Conference with a 27-21 record. Cousins is a dynamicplayerwho is able to do a lot on the floor.
For New Orleans, the possibility of the franchise's first playoff trip since 2015 is now in serious jeopardy. After undergoing surgery to fix a torn hamstring before training camp, Hill has yet to play this season but has targeted a February return.
Sources indicated the team expected the MRI to reveal a tear, which would cost Cousins the remainder of the season.
And for Pelicans'CenterDeMarcus Cousins, news just broke that he may have suffered one of the worst sports injuries of all.

Cousins had just missed a free throw after getting fouled making a shot that gave the Pelicans a four-point lead, 113-109 with 15 seconds to play.
In fact, those numbers had Cousins on pace to join Charles Barkley (1992-93) as the only players in league history to average at least 25 points, 12 boards, five assists and 1.5 steals over the course of an entire season. He's been an absolute monster, stuffing the stat sheet easily and in a way we've never seen before.
He is playing on the final year of his contract. The setback will also make it more hard for the Pelicans to make the playoffs.
Considering all of that, I'd make the Pelicans slight favorites to make the playoffs at even odds.
Whoever is running the show this summer will have to figure out how to handle Cousins' free agency.
While losing the ability to play Cousins and Davis together is a big problem for Gentry's playoff hopes, there's a much bigger problem: New Orleans has been an absolute disaster on both ends any time both Davis and Cousins have both been off the court. Right now, the center will have to rehab and get back to form from the injury.
