We’ve got 12 games on the schedule in the NBA for Wednesday night, but one stands out above the rest. Rookie phenom Zion Williamson is expected to make his NBA debut for the New Orleans Pelicans against the San Antonio Spurs at Smoothie King Center at 9:30 p.m. ET. Williamson has been sidelined after knee surgery in October and the No. 1 overall pick is expected to return. He’s listed as questionable right now, but the plan is for Zion to see 15-20 minutes. Let’s go over the initial point spreads and over/under totals for each game:

76ers @ Raptors (-6.5, 217) 7:00 p.m. ET
Kings @ Pistons (+1.5, 220.5) 7:00 p.m. ET
Thunder @ Magic (-2, 208.5) 7:00 p.m. ET
Lakers @ Knicks (+11, 224) 7:30 p.m. ET
