(NEW ORLEANS) — First overall draft pick Zion Williamson will sit out the New Orleans Pelicans’ final preseason game with a sore right knee, the team announced Thursday.
New Orleans is in New York City to take on the Knicks on Friday. Williamson did not travel with the team, and will undergo further testing. There was no immediate timetable for his return.
