New Orleans Pelicans center Kendrick Perkins could miss three months rehabilitating a right pectoral injury, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

Perkins sustained the injury early in the Oct. 31 loss to the Golden State Warriors and was replaced by normal starting center Omer Asik, who is on a minutes restriction after returning from a right calf strain injury.

The Pelican are off to an 0–5 start with their latest loss coming against the Atlanta Hawks. Anthony Davis matched a career-high with 43 points in the losing effort.

The Pelicans have been plagued by injuries to start the regular season. Guards Tyreke Evans and Norris Cole will miss multiple weeks. There is no timetable for the return of Quincy Pondexter. And guard Jrue Holiday is also on a minutes restriction.

Perkins played in 25 minutes combined in the Pelicans’ first two games of the season. He was averaging 5.3 points and 2.7 rebounds per game before the injury.
