The New Orleans Pelicans have received incredible news in recent times. Their biggest star, Zion Williamson, looks closer to a return after the recent developments. After returning to NOLA to progress in basketball activities, Zion was spotted taking some pictures with people, looking in good shape.
Those pics surprised fans, who are very excited about the forward's future and what his return could mean for the Pelicans. He's still one of the best players under 25 this season, but we're yet to see the best from Zion in the league.
Well, that possibility looks bigger by the day, as Zion has returned to the Pelicans facilities, looking in great spirits, talking with his teammates, and just looking happy to have the basketball in his hands.
Zion's comeback might be the addition the Pels need to face the play-in tournament and perhaps make it to the playoffs in the Western Conference. The player hasn't taken the court since the end of the 2021/22 NBA season due to a foot injury.
He has undergone several surgeries to help his foot, and now it seems like we're really close to seeing him return to the league. Again, Zion is one of the most exciting young players in the league, and having him on the court would be a major boost for the Pelicans.
Many folks have insisted that he doesn't want to play in New Orleans, but Zion looked very happy to be back with the Pelicans. We have to wait and see if the players' body stops messing with him and Williamson can fulfill his potential. We are in front of one of the best young players in the league and the hype around him hasn't gone down a bit.
