Zion Williamson will make his season debut with the New Orleans Pelicans against the San Antonio Spurs.

As confirmed by the Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry, Williamson will not have much playing time in the first games.

“I think everybody’s gotta understand, he doesn’t have minutes restrictions, but we’re gonna have all eyes on him as far as the energy bursts and how long he can play consecutively,” Gentry told Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports.

“Obviously, it’ll be short minutes for a while. Short, consecutive minutes,” he added.

Williamson had been sidelined since October with a knee injury.
