Dr. Suri to Keep Pelicans Job After Saints Fired Him over Delvin Breaux Injury

Despite losing his job with the New Orleans Saints, Dr. Misty Suri will reportedly remain with the New Orleans Pelicans, according to Mason Ginsberg of Bourbon Street Shots.

As Justin Verrier of The Ringer noted, Suri is the head team physician and director of medical services for the Pelicans.

Suri and Deryk Jones were fired by the Saints on Wednesday following a misdiagnosis of cornerback Delvin Breaux, per Mike Triplett of ESPN.com. The team doctors originally said Breaux's injury was a bruise, but it was discovered he instead fractured his fibula.

"I think it's not one event, it probably builds up over a period of time," coach Sean Payton said of the firings. "You're not gonna bat a thousand here, but you're just hoping that more often than not, you're getting the right information."

Despite the decision from the Saints, Ochsner Health System provided a message of support for its doctors.

"We stand behind our strong Sports Medicine Program, including Dr. Jones and Dr. Suri and a team made up of nationally recognized orthopedic surgeons who are fellowship trained in sports medicine," it said in a statement, per Will Guillory of the Times-Picayune. "The focus of our physicians, trainers, therapists and staff remain on caring for thousands of athletes each year across the region."


In addition to working with the Saints and Pelicans, Suri is a team physician for the University of New Orleans and Dillard University, as well as various New Orleans universities, colleges and high schools, according to his personal website.

Re: Dr. Suri to Keep Pelicans Job After Saints Fired Him over Delvin Breaux Injury

I'm not a fan of the NBA, but I still follow a fair majority of what goes on with it, and I can't help but notice how many games Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday, Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson (when those last two were still on the team) have missed over the last few years. I know injuries happen, but there seems to be another alarming trend there, just as with the Saints.

Perhaps Ochsner should stop defending these doctors, and instead look out for the health of it's patients by holding these doctors accountable.
