Williamson has not taken the floor at all in his third NBA season as he recovers from a right foot injury. The former No. 1 overall draft pick scored 27 points per game over 61 games in the 2020-21 season.
Zion Williamson injury updates
April 13 update: Williamson is still out indefinitely, but definitely seems to be progressing well. He did a 360 dunk in warmups ahead of Wednesday’s play-in game.

Williamson has been cleared for basketball activities, though there is no timetable for him to return to the floor. He participated in a pregame scrimmage late in the regular season, but the team still have him listed as out indefinitely. Williamson’s stepdad Lee Anderson said he still expects Williamson to play this season. Williamson’s injury timeline has certainly been hard to follow, and it’s anyone’s guess if he will be available for the Pelicans as they get set for a spot in the play-in tournament.
