Zion was supposed to practice Thursday but didn’t. His return has been delayed after he told team officials he was experiencing soreness in his right foot.
Willie Green said the team will “see if the soreness goes away after a few days of dialing back.” nola.com/sports/pelican…3:27 PM

To be clear:
1. This wasn’t Zion re-injuring the foot.
2. He experienced some soreness the morning after a workout. The team decided to slow down his ramp up process to manage the soreness.
3. There’s no plan as of now to get additional scans on the foot. – 2:39 PM

What is there to say about the Zion stuff anymore?
When there’s video of him participating in 5-on-5 practice, I’ll start to believe it. Until then, he’s just a guy on the sidelines. – 2:39 PM
Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
The @New Orleans Pelicans say left foot soreness ruled Zion Williamson out of practice today and has placed Williamson’s comeback on hold again.

Two quick fouls on Samuell Williamson, both offensive fouls with the ball. Cards offense really sloppy. – 7:32 PM

More on this storyline

As Williamson gets closer to making his season debut, he’ll join a team that is off to one of the worst starts in franchise history. His return will bring some much-needed stability to the young core, but the Pelicans are looking to follow the 2020-21 Washington Wizards and become just the fourth team since the ABA/NBA merger to make the playoffs after starting 6-17. “We haven’t had Z this season. [We’re] really waiting for him. We need him,” Valanciunas said. “He’s gonna be the big piece for us offensively, defensively. The game is gonna change in a good way, big time.” -via ESPN / December 1, 2021
Andrew Lopez: Willie Green says the team is still waiting the specialist to review Zion Williamson’s latest scans. It’s still wait-and-see. Mentioned Williamson has been doing 3-on-3 work. Still waiting clearance to move to full team drills. -via Twitter @_Andrew_Lopez / November 24, 2021
