Zion Williamson is set to miss an extended time due to his concerning foot issues. 

The promising forward took a biologic injection jab in his injured right foot, which will stimulate his bone healing. He will be re-evaluated in around 4-6 weeks. 

The New Orleans Pelicans further announced that Williamson will undergo low impact, partial weight-bearing activities. 

Unavailability has derailed the one-time All-star’s early career so far, as his games missed already outweigh the times he played in the NBA. 

Williamson demonstrated a glimpse of what he can do further in the league when healthy during the 2020-2021 season, wherein he tallied 27.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game with 61.1 percent shooting from the area on 61 occasions.

A touted generational talent, he was selected by New Orleans as the first overall pick of the 2019 Draft.
