New Orleans Pelicans guard Didi Louzada’s frustrating season took another turn for the worse on Saturday. While playing with the Birmingham Squadron of the G League, Louzada tore the medial meniscus in his left knee. New Orleans announced Louzada will be out indefinitely.
Louzada has played in just two games with the Pelicans this season. In late-November, Louzada was suspended for 25 games due to violating the NBA/NBPA’s anti-drug policy. Louzada tested positive for two different performance enhancing drugs.
That suspension ended recently and Louzada was assigned to the Squadron to ramp back up to rejoining the Pelicans. Now, it’s unknown when that return to playing in the NBA will happen.
