Zion Williamson Yet To Start On-Court Activities, Pelicans Being Extra Cautious For Return 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Dec 3, 2019 6:58 am

The New Orleans Pelicans are being "overly cautious" in dealing with the return of Zion Williamson, according to Andrew Lopez of ESPN.


Williamson, who had knee surgery 6 weeks ago, has yet to begin on-court activities.


Alvin Gentry added that Williamson was "itching" to return to the court.

SIt him out this year and have him come back next year for ROY. Let him watch film and practices and get used to the NBA lifestyle this season.

Aka the Philly 76ers rookie strategy.

No problem with them taking all the time he needs, but that RoY stuff with Simmons was a farce. I don't care if it's the last week of the season, if he's ready to play, he should come in and play. RoY is a meaningless award within the scope of a career. It just means you were the best player among a group of players who suck pretty much every season. Whoopty doo.

Just a matter of time before they say he had a set back
And will be revaluation around the all star game and they determine that it is better to just let him sit the whole season out.
