Latest Injury Reports for Zion Williamson

Injury: Hamstring

Injury Status: Out

UPDATE (Feb. 02):

Williamson (hamstring) will be re-evaluated in next week.

Williamson had been re-evaluated this week, and the Pelicans saw improvement in his strained right hamstring. Despite this progress, the Pelicans are giving Williamson another two weeks to work on strengthening his hamstring and increasing his range of motion before making a decision about his future.

It is recommended that players like Naji Marshall (toe), Jaxson Hayes, and others continue to take Williamson’s place in the starting lineup. If the upcoming reevaluation is any indication, Williamson could return as early as the second week of February, though it wouldn’t be shocking if the Pelicans decided to keep him out until after the All-Star break.

UPDATE (Jan. 25):

Williamson’s hamstring injury will be evaluated again after it has healed for two weeks.

The follow-up evaluation that Williamson had this week revealed, according to the reports, that he needs to have another one in two weeks. The new timetable for Williamson’s recovery indicates that he may be able to return as early as the second week of February, despite the fact that his next evaluation is not scheduled to take place until much later in the month.

UPDATE (Jan. 24):

Because of his hamstring injury, Zion Williamson is still unable to play. The last week of the month is when we expect him to get back, at least.

UPDATE (Jan. 18):

Because of his hamstring injury, it is likely that Zion Williamson will be out of commission for a considerable amount of time.

Unfortunately for Williamson, the results of the MRI that was performed earlier in the day on his hamstring don’t appear to be in his favor, which is a source of great disappointment. Even though he has only been in the league for three years, the star power forward has a history of lengthy injuries, and he will now add another one to the list of his previous ailments. It would appear that Naji Marshall will be the candidate who will benefit the most from his absence the most.
