New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball is looking forward for the season debut of the No.1 of the 2019 Draft, Zion Williamson.

“It’s going to be amazing when he gets back, especially for my game,” Ball said, via Christian Clark of Nola.com.

“It’s going to open up a lot of things for shooters for sure because people are going to suck in, and he’s going to make the right play,” Ball added.

Williamson underwent surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in October and has been sidelined since then. He is expected to make his season debut this month.

Ball has been averaging 12.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists this season. The Pelicans are at 12-25.
