The New Orleans Pelicans expect to miss Zion Williamson for a period of weeks to begin the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Williamson sat out the Pels final preseason game with knee soreness.
Wojnarowski notes that the Pelicans have no shortage of confidence that the forward will have a full recovery but are treating the injury with an abundance of caution.
Williamson wasted no time making an impact during the four preseason games that he did play, finishing as the No. 4 scorer in preseason with 23.3 points per game.
More to come.
