Shams Charania: Pelicans’ Zion Williamson had surgery for a fractured right foot this offseason and should return for the start of the regular season, David Griffin says.
Eliot Clough: Griff says the team will approach the preseason like training camp, and “I anticipate we’ll be ramping up throughout the preseason.” Zion’s injury is his right foot and his fifth metacarpal.
Andrew Lopez: Griff says Zion was working out prior to summer league and suffered the injury then. Says head strength and conditioning coach Stan Williams has been with Zion throughout the summer and his recovery was “in lockstep” with the team.
