Pelicans’ Lance Stephenson Out With Groin Injury


The New Orleans Pelicans’ manpower crisis worsened late Saturday, when the team announced that guard Lance Stephenson had suffered a groin injury that will require surgery.

Already without its top two perimeter players, Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans, and off to an 0-6 start, New Orleans has lost Stephenson indefinitely after an MRI exam Saturday confirmed the need for surgery.
