NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Pelicans said that star power forward Zion Williamson is making good progress in the recovery from his right hamstring injury and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, according to a media release sent by the team.
Williamson injured his right hamstring on January 2 during a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. The release said that his hamstring is healing as expected and he will continue to rehabilitate.
Williamson has averaged 26.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game in 29 games played this year. He missed the entirety of the 2021-2022 season due to a broken foot but signed a massive contract extension after the 2022 season ended.
The Pelicans are currently 4th in the Western Conference with a 26-21 record. They play the Denver Nuggets Tuesday night at home at 7:00 p.m. on Bally Sports New Orleans.
