Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry also admitted to reporters that they were "scared" about the injury, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.
Cousins, 27, is a four-time All-Star and two-time All-NBA player who was drafted fifth overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2010.
The ramifications of this injury could be massive: Gentry and GM Dell Demps entered the season with a playoff mandate and Cousins was seeking his first career trip to the playoffs prior to becoming an unrestricted free agent next year. They are now No. 6 in the Western Conference with a 27-21 record, but are only three games ahead of the No. 9 seed L.A. Clippers.
As for the Pelicans, they'll be hard-pressed to deal for help replacing Cousins at the deadline due to their cap situation. Right now, though, don't expect New Orleans to throw in the towel just yet. The Spurs lost for just the fourth time at home this season.
Sources indicated the team expected the MRI to reveal a tear, which would cost Cousins the remainder of the season. Cousins will undergo surgery to fix the injury and will miss the remainder of the season. "Everybody's playing well so we've just got to carry that over to the rest of the season".
Cousins averaged 53.2 FanDuel points per game this season.
Chris Paul, Eric Gordon and James Harden combined for 88 points and 21 assists in the Rockets loss to the Pelicans.
Before his unfortunate exit in the game, Cousins had a triple-double with 15 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists and three steals in 30 minutes of action. Keeping Jordan and Williams makes more sense for the Clippers if they expect to make the playoffs, and Utah's slim hopes of a playoff berth now seem slightly more realistic. And even if they should do so, they're not going to last long.
Whoever is running the show this summer will have to figure out how to handle Cousins' free agency. They may still decide to add at the trade deadline, but without Cousins, their chances of actually winning a playoff series have decreased dramatically.
