Zion Williamson by many is considered to be a generational talent. During his tenure with Duke, his dominance in the paint has been praised by many greats.
We got to witness a glimpse of his potential in a turbulent rookie season and the entirety of his sophomore season where he made his first All-Star with averages of 27 ppg, 7.2 rpg and 3.7 apg. The organizations and the fans were very eager to watch his uprise this season.
However, a foot injury sidelined him for the entire season putting a brief halt to his legacy. The Pelicans were not known to have the best of player development and medical personnel. So they are being really careful in the maintaining a proper physical condition of the superstar.
Views on Zion Williamson on Social Media
So as to say, but this season numerous photos were posted on social media showing that the superstar was not at all keep his body in “NBA shape”. Charles Barkley from Inside the NBA aptly said “Looks like me and Shaq had a baby.” If one of the greatest power forward of all time has this to say, then it means you better straighten up.
Currently, no updates have been given on Zion’s return to the court and fans have been kept guessing whether the face of their franchise will ever show up. People have started referring the No. 1 pick of the 2019 draft, the next ‘Greg Oden’. Although it’s far-fetched, yet it proves that the viewers are getting impatient and the Pelicans need to address this issue as soon as possible.
Brian Windhorst from Sports Nation rightfully stated, “Obviously, we have not heard anything official from Zion in now almost two months. At the time, the timeline was 2-3 weeks. So, the Pelicans have taken great care and Zion Williamson’s camp has taken great care to not allow anything official out about his condition. But it is clear within the team that they do not expect him to return in the short term… it has not been a flow of good news.
Zion was supposed to come back literally five months ago. So, this has been an unfortunate situation and really the question is, what can be done to make sure of his health both short term and long term? They are barrelling toward trying to make the playoffs, but when they made the CJ trade they knew there was a good chance Zion was not going to be back this season. They just don’t know when he’s coming back.”
This question has been revolving around Zion Williamson since his rookie season. ‘When is he going to come back?’ Guess we have to be a bit more patient to arrive to that answer as the season comes to a close.
