MRI results won't be known until tomorrow, but multiple reports are the initial diagnosis is a torn left Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

Cousins was averaging 25.4 points, 12.9 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game this season.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry acknowledged that the untimely injury could progress his team's push for a playoff berth.

So far, 127 witnesses have been interviewed, but the list of people that detectives still need to speak with is growing, she said. Toronto police were seen leaving the Sherman household Friday morning, taking down yellow tape from the crime scene.

The loss of Cousins would be a big blow to the Pelicans, who were able to win 7 out of their 8 games and climbed to 6th place of the Western Conference standings. That's the tough part. We'll just have to wait and see what the future is like for Cousins. DeMarcus Cousins dropped in a critical and-one hoop with 15 seconds left to make it a two-possession game at 113-109, but ended up on the floor after missing the subsquent free throw.

And for Pelicans' Center DeMarcus Cousins, news just broke that he may have suffered one of the worst sports injuries of all. Largely uncontested on the play, Cousins took two staggered steps on the other leg, took a step on the injured leg, and immediately went down and stayed down in pain.

In addition to being a behemoth on the block, Cousins has refined his three-point shot and is a capable marksman from the perimeter. He was going to get a massive contract, likely to remain with the Pelicans.

Chris Paul stood out for the Rockets with a season-high 38 points but it was not enough to bring his team back from a 21-point deficit in the third. I feel terrible for him, with everything he's tried to do this year for us, and the improvements in all areas he's made, on and off the court, has just been great. "I think that makes us a better, deeper team". James also had 11 turnovers.

The Pelicans (27-21) return to action Sunday when they host the Clippers at 3:00 p.m.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Houston is favored on the road in this game, as the Rockets are getting odds of -4 points against the Pelicans. And the Pelicans' earned it on Friday, tallying their most meaningful win since the final day of the 2014-15 regular season. Sure, the Pelicans are going to miss Boogie Cousins this season.

At a conference in July, Musk said , "I hope it makes it far enough beyond the pad so that it does not cause pad damage". Update: In a tweet following today's test, Elon Musk said the Falcon Heavy launch could take place in about a week.

On a fairly shallow team, the Pelicans will now have to make Davis the focal point of their offense, and they'll have to scrape together points to replace Cousins' nightly average.
