The New Orleans Pelicans provided an update on Zion Williamson’s status in his recovery from a broken bone in his right foot this afternoon.
Recent imaging showed improved bone healing of the fifth metatarsal in Zion Williamson’s right foot. He will gradually progress to full weight-bearing exercise and basketball activities. He remains out indefinitely.
This sounds like good news; however, Willie Green’s message in pregame was more reserved, indicating that a return this season is far from assured.
“He’s getting better,” Green said. “We’re all pleased with the results that he’s progressing. There’s still a long road ahead of him. He’s aware of it, but he’s taking the necessary steps to continue to improve. We’ll see how it goes.”
