The New Orleans Pelicans release a foot injury update for Zion Williamson that will surely bring a smile to NOLA fans’ faces.
New Orleans Pelicans fans didn’t get to witness Zion Williamson take on the floor for the entire 2021-2022 campaign. The former Duke Blue Devil was expected to miss out merely the first 3-4 weeks of the season, however, he sat out for all the 82 games.
Nevertheless, recently, the team gave a crucial update on their forward’s foot injury. In a recent post on the organization’s social media, they mentioned:
Recent imaging of Williamson’s right fifth metatarsal showed continued improvement.
Williamson has been cleared in his return to play progression without any restrictions.

In simpler terms, barring any other setback, “Zanos” should be available for the 2022-2023 season without being on any minutes restriction.

Without the service of their star forward, this young Pels squad led by veteran CJ McCollum managed to advance to the playoffs and give a tough fight to the #1 seeded Phoenix Suns team. We can only imagine just how dangerous NOLA will be next season with Williamson dominating the paint on a nightly basis.
