Zion Williamson, The Debut — It’s Finally Happening (soon enough)!

Zion Williamson is just a few games away from taking the court for the New Orleans Pelicans in a regular-season game. It is definitely a few months later than planned, but it’s finally happening.

Williamson has been participating in 5-on-5 drills and is on track to make his Pelicans regular-season debut soon.
