Pelicans All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins will undergo surgery to repair a torn left Achilles tendon and will miss the remainder of the season, league sources told ESPN.

An MRI late Friday night confirmed an initial diagnosis of a full tear of the tendon, league sources told ESPN.

“We were starting to play damn good basketball,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry told ESPN in a text message. “DeMarcus has been great.”

Cousins suffered the non-contact injury with about 12 seconds left in Friday’s 115-113 win over the Rockets when he attempted to rebound his own missed free throw by poking the ball away from Houston’s Trevor Ariza. After landing hard on his left leg, Cousins hopped a couple of times on his right foot and then collapsed to the court when he attempted to put pressure on his left foot again.

He needed assistance from teammates to exit the court.
