Around the League: Zion Hurt, Griffin Retires, and Nets Find a Coach

Let’s take a look at what’s happening around the league over the past day.

Zion Injures Hamstring in Loss to Lakers

A rough night for the New Orleans Pelicans, who looked like they were about to complete a crazy comeback in their play-in game against the Los Angeles Lakers. But as he scored his 40th point, Pelicans star Zion Williamson grimaced and had to leave the game in frustration. Afterward, the Lakers held on, and the Pelicans must beat the Kings Friday night to avoid playoff elimination.

Williamson suffered a hamstring strain, and the Pelicans have ruled him out of Friday’s game.
