  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Hammers home 36 in Wednesday's win

    Williamson provided 36 points (15-21 FG, 6-9 FT), six rebounds, eight assists and one block over 34 minutes during Wednesday's 133-126 win over Washington.

    Foot and quadricep injuries have cost Williamson five of 22 games since the beginning of January, but the fifth-year forward is capable of flashing his upside whenever he's on the court. He's hit for 30-plus points in three of his last six contests, a stretch in which he's averaging 25.0 points, 6.0 assists, 5.7 boards and 1.2 blocks while shooting 56.1 percent from the floor.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Iffy against Washington

    Williamson (foot) is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Wizards.

    Williamson finished Monday's 96-87 victory over the Grizzlies with 14 points (4-13 FG, 6-7 FT), five rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 35 minutes.

    Williamson returned after missing the previous game with a left foot contusion, ending as one of five Pelicans players in double-figure scoring while adding a handful of rebounds in a winning effort. Williamson struggled shooting from the field despite posting a double-digit point total, converting 30.8 percent from the field, which is his lowest field-goal percentage of the season.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Will play vs. Grizzlies

    Williamson (foot) is available for Monday's game against Memphis.

    Williamson carried a questionable tag leading up to Monday's tipoff, but he's since been given the green light after missing Saturday's clash against Portland. The 23-year-old is coming off a strong 30-point showing Friday night against the Lakers.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Game-time decision Monday

    Williamson (foot) is a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Williamson is at risk of missing his second consecutive game due to a left foot contusion. The 23-year-old has suited up on the last two occasions for which he was deemed a game-time decision, but his status will still need to be monitored.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Questionable for Monday

    Williamson (foot) is questionable to play Monday against Memphis.

    Williamson is dealing with a left foot bruise, which sidelined him for Saturday's win over Portland. Saturday's matchup represented the second half of the back-to-back for New Orleans, so it's possible that the Pelicans exercised an abundance of caution by resting Williamson, but his status will nonetheless need to be monitored in advance of Monday's game.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Won't play Saturday

    Williamson (foot) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Saturday's game is the second leg of the back-to-back set, so the Pelicans will take a cautious approach with Williamson after he produced 30 points (12-19 FG, 6-7 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 32 minutes in Friday's 139-122 loss to the Lakers. With Williamson out Saturday, the Pelicans could lean more heavily on Herbert Jones, Trey Murphy and Jonas Valanciunas than they usually would.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Considered questionable

    Williamson is listed as questionable for Saturday's tilt against the Trail Blazers due to a bruised left foot.

    Williamson presumably picked up the injury in Friday's 139-122 loss to the Lakers. He accumulated 30 points (12-19 FG, 6-7 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 32 minutes in the contest. His status Saturday will seemingly depend on how his foot is feeling once he tests it out prior to tipoff. Naji Marshall (back) and Herbert Jones would be candidates for increased run at power forward if Williamson ultimately has to sit out.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Sniffs double-double in loss

    Williamson amassed 30 points (12-19 FG, 6-7 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 32 minutes during Friday's 139-122 loss to the Lakers.

    Friday marked Williamson's seventh scoring total of 30-plus points, and although the Pelicans are dangerous when Zion is dialed in, they didn't have enough firepower to overcome the Lakers' 87 points in the first half. The best news for New Orleans is that Williamson is healthy after missing the first 10 games of the season. Injuries have plagued the Duke product throughout his four years in the league, but his ceiling is unlimited if he can stay on the floor.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Will play Friday

    Williamson (foot) will play in Friday's game against the Lakers, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Williamson has been battling this injury since Jan. 26 and has missed two of the past seven games for New Orleans. Friday's game is the front end of a back-to-back set with Portland on the schedule for Saturday, so a maintenance day could be on the table for one of these games.

    Williamson closed Wednesday's 117-106 victory over the Clippers with 21 points (7-16 FG, 7-10 FT), three rebounds, 10 assists, two blocks and one steal over 35 minutes.

    Williamson enjoyed his second-highest assist total of the season in the win, and he's picked up a step as he continues to recover from a lingering foot injury. The All-Star is on pace for his healthiest season as a pro after appearing in only 29 games during the 2022-23 campaign. Williamson has averaged 22.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists over 41 games.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Hits game-winning bucket Friday

    Williamson registered 33 points (12-21 FG, 9-13 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 36 minutes during Friday's 114-113 victory over San Antonio.

    In classic fashion, Williamson bulldozed through three Spurs defenders in transition, getting to his left hand for a contested layup off the glass to put New Orleans ahead for good. The 23-year-old has been sharp over the last five games, averaging 24.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists on 61.0 percent shooting. His season-long assist rate is at a personal high of 24.2 percent, although he has underwhelmed in the rebounding column this season.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Available for Friday

    Williamson (foot) is available for Friday's game against the Spurs.

    Williamson will be returning from a one-game absence in a highly anticipated matchup against Victor Wembanyama. There's no word of any restrictions for Williamson, and that's good news for the Pelicans considering they will be shorthanded with Larry Nance (ankle) and Herbert Jones (thigh) sidelined.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Partial participant in practice

    Williamson (foot) participated in portions of Thursday's practice session, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Williamson was unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets due to a left foot bone contusion, and his status for Friday's game against the Spurs isn't yet clear. While it's encouraging that he was at least a partial participant in Thursday's practice session, Naji Marshall and Jonas Valanciunas could see increased playing time again Friday if Williamson and/or Herbert Jones (thigh) remain out.
