Number one draft picks Zion Williamson will have to wait his official debut in the NBA but his teammate Jrue Holiday says that just having Zion on the court will be huge.

Has it hurt not having Zion in the lineup?

“I mean I’m not going to lie, what he brings to the team, what he brings to the court, what he brings with his ability to slash to the basket. Extra rebounds. Finish at the rim. Just his presence on the court is huge. So, yeah he’d help us a little bit.”
