Zion Williamson finally made it to the NBA and already played his first game in the Summer League with the New Orleans Pelicans, but his participation was cut short due to a bruised knee, which is going to keep him sidelined for the rest of the competition.
Pelicans VP of basketball operations David Griffin stated that the player was ‘precautionary’ sidelined for the rest of the Summer League and there is no motive to be worried about his health.
Now that injuries started to appear in Williamson’s career, many people have started to wonder how his career will develop if his body doesn’t help him and if he doesn’t take care of it.
College basketball coach-turned-analyst Seth Greenberg discussed Zion’s current situation on ESPN’s Get Up!, explaining that he’s worried about the Duke product’s long-term health. Greenberg broke down that Williamson’s weight can play a major role in his development and can be a factor in the player’s future injuries.
