The @New Orleans Pelicans say left foot soreness ruled Zion Williamson out of practice today and has placed Williamson’s comeback on hold again.

Zion Williamson is experiencing soreness in his foot and his return has been delayed.
Williamson did not practice today. The soreness has persisted. No re-imaging has been scheduled at this time.
Williamson will be dialed back before ramping back up next week. – 1:55 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Zion did not practice today. He is dealing with lingering soreness in his right foot. Latest round of imaging revealed no structural issues, but his return has been pushed back. – 1:55 PM

Eric Patten @EricPatten
Think about the West’s injured All-Star team right now…
Kawhi, LeBron, Klay, Dame, Zion, Ja, Murray, Booker, KAT… sheesh – 9:24 AM

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

Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
The Pelicans started 1-12.
They’re 5-5 since and won 3 of 4.
At 6-17, the climb to the playoffs will be a steep one.
But could the return of Point Zion stabilize things even more and give them a better shot?

I chatted with @Brandon Ingram on the state of the Pelicans, his recent injury, Zion Williamson’s absence & more. But first, Ingram reiterates his commitment to the Pelicans organization https://t.co/0XwuaSEho1 pic.twitter.com/9OtrfdUAcX10:53 AM

Caught Donda Academy’s game vs. TSF, Zion Cruz had a day with Kanye and Quavo courtside. Smooth rising into pull-up, flashes of burst attacking the rim. Scorer. pic.twitter.com/L8ZdKQhy6e9:06 AM

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

Shams Charania: Pelicans’ Zion Williamson (fractured foot) has been cleared for full basketball activities, team says. -via Twitter @ShamsCharania / November 26, 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
