Zion Williamson is cleared to play in back-to-back games for the remainder of the season, as confirmed by the New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry.

The Pelicans will face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday (03/03) and the Dallas Mavericks (04/03) on Wednesday.

Williamson has played in only 15 games this season, due to a knee injury that sidelined him for almost four months. He is averaging 24.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists.

New Orleans is at 26-34, 3.5 games back of the Memphis Grizzlies for the eighth spot.
