  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Limited impact in loss Sunday

    Williamson chipped in 12 points (4-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists and two steals over 34 minutes during Sunday's 124-108 loss to the Lakers.

    The fact that Williamson finished with more field goal attempts than points scored tells you all you need to know about his performance Sunday. This was his worst outing since March 22, but the star forward doesn't have a lot of time to reflect on this appearance, as the Pelicans need him at his best to face the Lakers again on Tuesday, this time in the Play-In Tournament. One bad outing is not going to ruin a stellar season, however, as Williamson scored 25 or more points in 32 different appearances during the regular season while also racking up 12 double-doubles across 70 contests.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Goes to locker room

    Williamson left Thursday's game versus the Kings with an apparent left wrist injury, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Williamson was attempting to get a shot up over multiple Kings and injured his left wrist in the process. The Pelicans haven't released an update yet, but Williamson should be considered questionable to return for now.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Returns to game

    Williamson returned for the second half of Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Williamson missed the last six minutes of the second quarter with an apparent wrist issue and didn't come out of the locker room until a few minutes before the start of the third quarter. However, it appears that he's fine, and he quickly scored a driving layup upon his return to action.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Hits for 22 in Tuesday's win

    Williamson closed with 22 points (7-18 FG, 8-9 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 110-100 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    The fourth-year forward scored 20-plus points for the 14th time in his last 16 games. This has been the healthiest season of Williamson's career -- he's already suited up for 67 games, a personal best -- and he's finishing it with some strong play, averaging 25.6 points, 6.9 boards, 4.4 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.1 blocks over that 16-game stretch while shooting 57.8 percent from the floor.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Sniffs triple-double Sunday

    Williamson racked up 29 points (11-21 FG, 7-8 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists, five blocks and one steal over 40 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 win over the Suns.

    Williamson returned from a one-game absence, and it seemed he wasn't bothered by the finger injury that caused him to miss Friday's loss to the Spurs, as the star forward ended just three assists away from recording a triple-double. Williamson has embraced a more prominent role as a playmaker but also remains an elite scoring weapon, and he's averaged 24.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game over his last 10 appearances.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Will play Sunday

    Williamson (finger) is available for Sunday's game against the Suns, Gerald Bourguet of reports.

    Williamson missed Friday's loss to the Spurs but practiced Saturday and will return to action Sunday. Over his last six appearances, Williamson has averaged 27.2 points, 5.3 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 35.5 minutes per game.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Practices Saturday

    Williamson (finger) participated in Saturday's practice, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    Williamson bruised his finger earlier in the week and sat out Friday's game as a result. His presence at practice Saturday indicates he is trending in the right direction. More clarity on his status should come once the Pelicans release the injury report for Sunday's game in Phoenix.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Officially listed as questionable

    Williamson (finger) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Suns.

    Williamson went through practice Saturday and seems to be trending in the right direction after missing Friday's loss to the Spurs. The return of the star forward could mean a decrease in offensive touches for Jonas Valanciunas, as the Pelicans' offense should flow through Williamson if he ends up being available. The star forward has averaged 24.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game over his last 10 appearances.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Out Friday

    Williamson (finger) won't play in Friday's matchup with the Spurs.

    While X-rays came back negative on Williamson's left middle finger after he bruised the digit in Wednesday's loss to the Spurs, the Pelicans will err on the side of caution with him for at least one game. While Williamson is sidelined for the first time since Feb. 10, the Pelicans could lean more heavily than usual on Jonas Valanciunas in the frontcourt, while CJ McCollum may be in store for some added playmaking opportunities.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Officially deemed questionable

    Williamson (finger) is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Spurs.

    Despite X-rays coming back negative on Williamson's left middle finger injury, he is still in danger of missing Friday's contest. If Williamson is ruled out against San Antonio, Larry Nance, Naji Marshall and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl are candidates to receive increased playing time.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: X-rays negative, deemed day-to-day

    Williamson (finger) underwent X-rays that came back negative Thursday, and he's considered day-to-day, Andrew Lopez of reports.

    Williamson was unavailable in the closing minutes of Wednesday's 117-108 loss to the Magic, and he's since been diagnosed with a left middle finger contusion. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Friday's game against the Spurs, but even if he's sidelined, Williamson doesn't appear as though he'll be headed for a lengthy absence late in the regular season.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Battles finger injury in loss

    Williamson generated 15 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two steals and a block during 29 minutes of Wednesday's 117-108 loss to the Magic. He didn't play the final 7:24 due to a finger injury, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Williamson took a brief trip to the locker room earlier in the contest after a collision with Gary Harris, but the incident appears to be unrelated to the finger issue. However, as Andrew Lopez of later reported, Williamson tweaked the finger injury on a block attempt, then hurt it again on a dunk early in the fourth quarter. The lessened workload meant Williamson scored fewer than 20 points for just the second time in his last 14 appearances. Fantasy managers should be on the lookout for an injury update ahead of the Pelicans' matchup with San Antonio on Friday.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Barrels to 30 points Monday

    Williamson amassed 30 points (10-20 FG, 10-13 FT), two rebounds, five assists and one steal over 37 minutes during Monday's 124-111 loss to Phoenix.

    Williamson could not duel against the scoring masterclass of Devin Booker (52 points, 19-28 FG), although Williamson still finished with his 12th 30-point game of the season. Notably, the 23-year-old is shooting a mediocre 60.5 percent at the rim this season, which ranks in the 55th percentile among all players.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Struggles from charity stripe

    Williamson supplied 25 points (9-17 FG, 7-14 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and one steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 104-92 loss to the Celtics.

    Williamson was responsible for 14 of the Pelicans' 18 free-throw attempts Saturday, but he was able to connect on only half of them. He's shooting 70.4 percent from the charity stripe this season, and he upped that to 75.2 percent in March heading into Saturday's game. Since the All-Star break, Williamson is averaging 23.7 points on 58.7 percent shooting, 6.7 rebounds, 5.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals over 32.7 minutes per game.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Strong from line as leading scorer

    Williamson ended with 28 points (9-15 FG, 10-16 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block over 33 minutes in Thursday's 107-100 win over Milwaukee.

    Williamson led all Pelicans players in scoring behind a strong shooting performance from the free-throw line, also adding a handful of rebounds to boost New Orleans in a winning effort. Williamson has connected on 10 or more free throws in five games this season, finishing with 25 or more points in all of those outings. He has now recorded at least 28 points in three straight contests.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Usage monster in loss

    Williamson provided 29 points (10-17 FG, 9-10 FT), five rebounds, 10 assists and three steals in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 119-112 loss to the Thunder. He also had five turnovers.

    Williamson led all players with 26 true possessions Tuesday. Williamson being careless with the rock is a notable blemish, but it's simultaneously a testament to how often the offense runs through him. Despite the stout rim protection of Chet Holmgren and the admirable physicality of Luguentz Dort, it's still a troubling trend that Williamson did not score in the final six minutes of Tuesday's narrow loss.
