Report: Zion Williamson Running on the Court, Still No Timetable for Return

Pelicans forward Zion Williamson has started doing a little bit of running on the court, according to NOLA.com's Christian Clark. 

Williamson, who has been battling a foot injury, will have another series of test on his right foot later this week or early next week, according to Pelicans head coach Willie Green.

There is still no timetable for when Williamson will return to the court. 

Williamson, 21, was evaluated nearly two weeks ago in which New Orleans general manager David Griffin told reporters that the Pelicans big man will return to the court when it is safe for him to do so.

Last season, Williamson averaged 27 points per game while shooting 61.1% from the floor. New Orleans (1-3) won its first game of the 2021 season on Monday as the Pelicans defeated the Timberwolves 107-98.

The Pelicans dropped their first three games of the season against the 76ers, the  Bulls and the Timberwolves.
