DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Friday’s game vs. the Nuggets.
Cousins has had a nagging Achilles injury and Coach Alvin Gentry said they will continue to monitor him. Gentry also mentioned that Anthony Davis will likely sit in the 2nd game of upcoming back-to-backs if he goes over 30 minutes in the 1st game which could also apply to Cousins. The Pelicans have been officially eliminated for the playoffs so don’t rely on Cousins or Davis as the regular season winds down. There are no viable pickups behind the two big men as the Pelicans roster is paper thin.
