Zion Williamson continues to experience soreness in his right foot and will likely be shut down from basketball activities for the time being.
Williamson’s bone has not healed the way the New Orleans Pelicans had expected.
Williamson underwent surgery at an undisclosed time this offseason and has yet to play this season.
The Pelicans released the following statement
“After experiencing persistent soreness in his right foot, Zion Williamson underwent medical imaging which showed a regression in the bone healing of his fifth metatarsal. As a result, the volume and intensity of his training will be reduced for an extended period to help allow for further bone healing. Additional updates will be provided as warranted.”
