The New Orleans Pelican recently signed veteran PG Jarrett Jack to a 10-day contract. Unfortunately for the Pelicans — who are trying make a push for the playoffs with newly traded for big man DeMarcus Cousins — they will have to do it without the help of Jack.

According to multiple reports, Jack has suffered a torn right lateral meniscus and will be out 4-6 weeks.

Via Twitter:

Jack tore his ACL in his right knee in 2016, ending his season with the Brooklyn Nets. This injury is likely to put an end to this season as well, and perhaps any chance of making an impact for New Orleans.

The Pelicans have seen significant time missed on their roster this season. That includes Omer Asik, Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holiday, and Quincy Pondexter, just to name a few.

Meanwhile, New Orleans is was without Cousins on Wednesday — a game they won vs. Detroit — thanks to his 18th technical foul and subsequent suspension. The Pelicans are just 1-3 since trading for Cousins over All-Star weekend.
