Zion Williamson will return to the New Orleans Pelicans lineup for the game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday.

Williamson did not play against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday, due to an inconclusive coronavirus test.

However, he tested negative a day later and he is now good to go against LeBron James and the Lakers.

Williamson and the Pelicans want to snap a four-game losing streak. Meanwhile, the Lakers want to extend their winning streak to five games.
