The New Orleans Pelicans got some decent news about star Zion Williamson.
Williamson has been cleared to participate in contact drills, beginning with 1-on-1 workouts and progressively working towards full-team workouts, the team announced on Tuesday.
According to the Pelicans, Williamson, who underwent imaging on his fractured right foot last Thursday, was medically cleared by doctors. The third-year forward will undergo further medical imaging on November 24, which will determine his availability for full-team workouts.
After 15 games, the Pelicans(2-13) are struggling and have the second-worst record in the NBA.
Last season, the 21-year-old Williamson averaged 27.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.
