Source: Boogie Cousins' flight not to Coachella


Social-media users were left scratching their heads over an image of New Orleans Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins taking an apparent private flight to somewhere other than his team's playoff-opening win in Portland, Oregon.
The weekend intrigue extended beyond the Pelicans fan base -- reaching into even the Mojave Desert when the caption on the Instagram photo referenced the popular music festival Coachella.
Cousins was actually relocating to a new house in Las Vegas, a source told Marc J. Spears of ESPN's The Undefeated. Cousins had been rehabilitating in Los Angeles after a season-ending Achilles injury he suffered in late January.
Adding to the confusion, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said before Saturday's Game 1 win that Cousins had not been cleared to fly and would not be in attendance.
"We would love for him to be here because he's been an integral part of this," Gentry said, according to The Times-Picayune. "I feel really bad for him because he's been great for us."
