Zion Williamson News
New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson has reportedly worked very hard during the offseason to get ready for the 2023-24 NBA campaign. "Was told he's been really focused on making sure his body is prepared for a long season," The Athletic's Will Guillory posted on social media. "Think he's gonna come in with a chip on his shoulder." Williamson has plenty to prove after enduring an injury-hit three-year NBA career so far. He played just 29 games last term, making his final appearance on Jan. 2. However, Williamson looked spectacular on the court when available, scoring 26.0 points and recording 7.0 rebounds with 4.6 assists.
New Orleans Pelicans stars Zion Williamson and CJ McCollum were seen participating in voluntary offseason workouts over the weekend. Williamson, after a tumultuous couple of seasons due to injury and off-court drama, will have an even bigger spotlight on him heading into this season. McCollum, on the other hand, is looked at as the veteran leader and key component to bring the team together to make a real playoff run. While their teammate, Brandon Ingram, competes with Team USA in the FIBA World Cup, it's an encouraging sign to see them leading by example.
New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson recently discussed the difficulties of staying on the court on the "Gil's Arena" podcast. When asked about eating healthy to maintain game shape, the 23-year-old admitted that "it's hard", without diving into specifics. "I'm putting people around me with wisdom", Williamson said, to help keep his habits responsible. At 6-foot-6 and 284 pounds, the explosive slasher presents of the league's most unique frames. It's no secret that Williamson has been unable to remain healthy since being drafted first overall in 2019. The oft-injured star has played in only 114 regular-season games across four possible campaigns.
According to ESPN senior writer Zach Lowe, the Pelicans aren't ready to move on from forward Zion Williamson. At least a handful of clubs have likely called about the former Duke Blue Devil. However, New Orleans feels he's a game-changer when healthy. That said, although Williamson has averaged 25.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.6 assists since entering the league, he's been limited to only 114 games due to injuries. At any rate, the Pelicans may be running out of patience with the 2019 No. 1 overall pick, so this topic could be revisited if he misses more time during the 2023-24 campaign.
