Pelicans Release Surprising Zion Williamson Health Update

The Pelicans released a surprising Zion Williamson health update on Tuesday.

According to team head coach Alvin Gentry, the team will take it slow and not rush Williamson back from his knee injury.

When the No. 1 overall pick from the 2019 NBA Draft went down with a torn right meniscus, a return timetable of six-to-weight weeks was promised. That was back in October.

Six-to-eight weeks has come and gone since then, and we do not appear to be any closer to seeing Williamson take the court.

There was a lot of buzz and hype surrounding New Orleans coming into this season, primarily due to Williamson’s arrival.

Unfortunately, after a dominant preseason, the former Duke star was forced to have surgery before playing a single regular season game.

As a result, fans have been salivating to see him take the court in a real outing.

Currently the Pelicans are 8-23 on the year and desperately need some sort of boost. Sadly, it looks like they will have to wait a bit longer for their prized rookie to turn things around.
