More good news for Zion Williamson and the Pelicans. A few days after learning of the player’s « improvement in healing », The Athletic tells us that the All-Star will return to the group.
We remember that the former Duke had left his teammates in early January to carry out his rehabilitation in Oregon, in Portland.
In addition, this return to the Pelicans comes with a green light to resume basketball activities. The interior will therefore be able to participate in training and its return this season is finally starting to take shape.
And at the best time since the players of Willie Green remain on four wins in a row and point to tenth place in the West, the last qualifier for the « play-in ».
Pelicans’ Zion Williamson is returning to New Orleans after spending time in Portland for his foot rehab, sources tell me and @WillGuillory. Williamson is cleared to progress in basketball activities. Pelicans have won four straight games and are in playoff race.
