Things keep going from bad to worse for the Pelicans.

The only winless team in the Western Conference (0-6) announced that guard Lance Stephenson was diagnosed with a groin injury that will require surgery.  An MRI performed today confirmed the injury. A timetable for his return will be announced at a later date.

The 6-5 Stephenson signed with New Orleans as a free agent in September.  In six games this season, he has averaged 9.7 points, 4.8 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 27 minutes per game.
