• Zion Williamson
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Shams Charania is reporting that the Pelicans are not blaming Zion Williamson’s weight for his injury and that they are 100 percent confident that this is an isolated incident.

    The Pelicans, just like the rest of the NBA, were well aware of what they were getting themselves into and anyone who watched Williamson’s preseason performances can tell you that having him healthy should be well worth it. Still, it’s true that there’s a great deal of force impacting his body each time he lands, especially since he’s heavier, stronger, and more explosive than any person should be. The Pelicans will absolutely be cautious with their rookie, but the jury is still out there on whether Zion can stay healthy.
