New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson is still recovering from a foot surgery, as he suffered a fracture foot before NBA Summer League.
David Griffin, the Pels’ GM, said Zion will be ready to play at the start of the regular season on Oct.20. However, the NBA superstar has yet to participate fully in a Pelicans’ practice.
In the latest update, New Orleans’ rookie head coach Willie Green claimed Willamson is progressing well towards his recovery, but a real timetable is still unknown, according to ESPN’s Andrew Lopez.
“He’s doing good. He was here today getting his cardio in. We don’t have an official update right now but when we do, Griff will let you know where we are with Z. But he was here. Good spirits. We just him to continue to progress,” Green said.
Green revealed they also await the results from the scans to assess the situation around Williamson. The Pelicans are scheduled to face the Philadelphia 76ers at home on October 20th for the start of the NBA regular season.
