The DeMarcus Cousins era got off to a rough start, as the New Orleans Pelicans were blown out by the Houston Rockets 129-99 in their first game since trading for the All-Star center. But they received even worse news afterward.

Omri Casspi, the other player traded to New Orleans from the Sacramento Kings along with Cousins, suffered a broken right thumb and is expected to miss four to six weeks. “It sucks,” Casspi said. “Shoot, we can’t catch a break. But it is what it is. Hopefully it’s going to heal faster than the projections and I’m back playing.”
