New Orleans Pelicans rookie sensation Zion Williamson will play in short bursts tonight against the Utah Jazz, according to ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

This comes after Williamson said he thinks he could “play the whole game”.

Williamson was originally labeled as a game-time decision, but the Pelicans will ease him back into live-game action.

The 20-year-old doesn’t need many minutes to make an impact, as he scored 22 points in a little over 18 minutes of action in his NBA debut.
