Zion Williamson Gets Positive Injury Update

Zion Williamson has proven to be a force in the NBA. However, the former Duke Blue Devil can't seem to stay on the court. Another season marred by injuries, Zion is hoping for a return. According to Shams Charania, Pelicans fans may see Zion soon rather than later. Of course, that would probably mean the team would need to make the playoffs. The Pelicans are currently in eighth place in the Western Conference. That positioning gives them the opportunity to play for the seventh seed in the play-in tournament.

According to Charania on an Appearance with The Pat McAfee Show, the NBA insider had this to say about Zion. "Zion Williamson played in some low intensity 3-on-3 the other day. He played with some coaches... He's getting some scrimmage work in... I'm told the Pelicans will be cautious with it." It seems the Pelicans are once again taking it slow with Zion. Williamson has voiced his frustrations in the past with how the organization has handled his injuries. However, it is understandable for the Pelicans to be overly cautious. Williamson is still the future of this franchise.

Zion Williamson Competing In Low-Intensity Scrimmages

Yes, the ultimate goal is to make the playoffs. However, don't plan on seeing the Pelicans rush Zion Williamson back out onto the court. The Pelicans are set up great for their future. The team owns future 1st round picks owned by the Lakers. As well as a great core led by Williamson and Brandon Ingram. It would be hard to imagine seeing the Pelicans keep Zion on the bench during another playoff run. Sooner or later, the team will have to take Zion out of the bubble wrap. Either he plays or stays injured and becomes a what could've been story.

The Pelicans once again find themselves in a tricky situation. Dealing with an injury to a superstar is always a delicate situation. However, if this drags into the off-season, one would think that decisions on Zion's future could soon change. Do the Pelicans trust Zion to lead their franchise into the next Zion? Will Zion be done with the way the organization has treated him and his injuries? Sound off in the comments below to let us know how the Pelicans should manage this.
