As he landed, Cousins appeared unable to place any weight on his left foot before collapsing to the ground. Wojnarowski's sources said the MRI confirmed that diagnosis, and that Cousins' recovery time would be between six and 10 months. "DeMarcus has been great".

Cousins recorded a triple-double of 15 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists before his team mates assisted him out of the court. So when they turned their attention to the Pelicans, they saw a team that was in a playoff hunt, and had two all-star bigs that almost resembled the San Antonio Spurs' twin towers. The duo was chosen to start together in this year's All-Star Game, and New Orleans was starting to look like a team that could make some noise in the Western Conference playoffs. He's been an absolute monster, stuffing the stat sheet easily and in a way we've never seen before.

He is averaging 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists and was set to play alongside National Basketball Association icon James and Pelicans team-mate Anthony Davis in next month's All-Star game. For context, the last players with such lines were Charles Barkley in 1993 and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1976. The 27-year-old differentiates himself by having a broader skill set than his Hall of Fame counterparts. He flirted with a triple-double, as well, grabbing 13 rebonds to go with seven assists, two steals and a pair of blocked shots as the Bucks, playing without point guard Malcolm Brogdon (strained left calf), improved to 2-0 since firing head coach Jason Kidd Monday afternoon. Meanwhile, New Orleans was looking increasingly comfortable with the scheme lately. The Pelicans will now be without a huge inside presence that has worked perfectly next to Anthony Davis. However, their defense is atrocious and ranks 29th in points per game allowed and 23rd in efficiency.
