In just a few weeks, fans of the New Orleans Pelicans will be able to hopefully see their star player shine yet again.
It’s been a long time since the loyal followers of the Pels have witnessed Zion Williamson and all he has to offer.
Due to injury and rehabilitation, Williamson hasn’t played in the NBA in over a year.
But he’s now set to return to his team and he could have a ground-shaking impact on the court.

Some people have forgotten but during his last healthy season, Williamson was an absolute beast.
He was averaging 27 points a game and had a field goal percentage of 61%.
Williamson played with strength, smarts, and impressive speed for his size.
There haven’t been many players like Williamson in the history of the league.
If he can remain healthy, he can continue to build his legacy and get closer to being one of the best players of all time.
What Williamson Can Do
Watching Williamson play is like seeing a freight train with a high basketball IQ on the court.
Once he gets moving, few things can stand in his way.
The wildest thing about Williamson is that he still has room to grow and can easily get better and better in the years ahead.
However, before he can do that, he will need to stay in good shape and not get hurt.
Williamson was drafted back in 2019 and so far he has only played in 85 NBA games.
With a dominant body like his, Williamson runs the risk of getting injured often.
And when he does, he’s usually out for a lengthy amount of time.
Hopefully that is behind him because if Williamson can remain healthy, the Pelicans could have a breakout season.
