NEW ORLEANS - DeMarcus Cousins will miss the rest of the season with a torn left Achilles Tendon, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowki.

Cousins had 15 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists before injuring his left Achilles.Team officials said an MRI will determine the severity of the injury.
The Pelicans star was recently named to the 2018 NBA All-Star team.
A fourth straight victory and seventh victory in eight games coming against one of the NBA's top teams should have been reason to celebrate, but Cousins injury left Head Coach Alvin Gentry visibly shaken.
"He's one of our key players and it's always tough, but we've got to keep pushing on," he said.
The Pelicans host the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.
