Zion Williamson will miss Wednesday night time’s recreation in opposition to the LA Clippers below the league’s well being and security protocols, the New Orleans Pelicans introduced Wednesday afternoon.
The Pelicans traveled to Los Angeles on Tuesday after they had been supposed to start out a seven-game, 13-day highway journey in Dallas on Monday. Nonetheless, that recreation was postponed due to constructive COVID-19 instances and contract tracing with the Mavericks.
It was unclear whether or not Williamson will miss greater than Wednesday night time’s recreation.
New Orleans didn’t add another gamers to its harm report. The Pelicans had been already set to be with out Lonzo Ball (bilateral knee tendinopathy), whereas Eric Bledsoe was listed as questionable (proper eye irritation) and JJ Redick as possible (proper hamstring tightness).
Williamson is averaging 21.9 factors on 55.7% capturing and eight.1 rebounds in 9 video games this season. That is the primary recreation he’ll miss this season.
