New Orleans Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins could be out for the remainder of the season after sustaining a left ankle injury in Friday's game against the Houston Rockets.

Cousins is a free agent this summer, and he has an unbelievable season with 25.4 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.6 blocks per game.

An All-Star starter, Cousins was in the middle of a stellar season. So it will be interesting to see how New Orleans plays Houston, considering the Rockets have won 9 of the last 11 meetings between these two. He is obviously one of New Orleans' most irreplaceable players, and a long-term injury to him would be thoroughly devastating to their playoff hopes in the Western Conference. "I don't want that to happen to a guy that's trying to better himself", Gentry said, per ESPN.

But Paul swung the momentum back in Houston's favor by scoring 10 points in the final three minutes of the third quarter and he made a three-pointer with 32 seconds left to cut the Pelicans' lead seven points.

"We were just getting it", Anthony Davis said in a somber Pelicans' locker room.

"We were just figuring everything out".

Cousins has been on a tear this season and had a triple-double before leaving tonight's game. He tried to get up as his teammates pursued the Houston Rockets toward the other end of the court, then went back down on his back and placed both hands on his head. "That's the tough part", Davis said.

In six-plus seasons with the Kings, Cousins averaged 21.1 points, 10.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. "We have just got to move on to the next game Sunday and try and go out there and do the same thing".

The injury, which occurred with 12 seconds left in the game, all but squelched the jubilation from the Pelicans and their fans, who otherwise would have been celebrating not just a victory over the team with the NBA's second-best record, but a fourth straight victory overall and seventh in eight games.

"Just unfortunate, really", Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday said. But the Pelicans' potent big duo is particularly problematic for a Rockets squad built to play fast and fire away from the perimeter.
