Williamson (foot) was cleared Friday to begin practicing in full, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

This is excellent news for Williamson, the Pelicans and fantasy managers, who have all gotten less-than-positive news through much of the star big man's recovery. Lopez notes that the Pelicans aren't expected to have a full practice until Dec. 2, so that will presumably be Williamson's first dive back into simulated game action. A timetable for his return is still not established, but it seems fair to assume he'll return sometime in December.
