Can I come back? Even if New Orleans has a play-in tournament, Zion Williamson (New Orleans) is said to be unable to play.
On the 8th (Korean time), local media ‘ESPN’ published an article titled “Williamson won’t be able to return until the play-in tournament”, drawing attention.
Williamson, who missed the entire last season, returned this season and averaged 26 points, 60.8% field goal percentage, 7 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.1 steals in 29 games. As before his injury, he showed a splendid performance based on his elasticity, but Williamson’s body suffered shortly after. Williamson, who was placed on the disabled list on January 3 with hamstring pain, has been on a hiatus ever since.
He was once predicted to return in March, but it was ‘hopeful torture’. Williamson is still out and will also miss his two remaining regular season games.
The New Orleans Pelicans, who once ranked No. 1 in the Western Conference, are also on a tightrope. The play-in tournament has been secured, but the seeding has not yet been determined. Although he saved the possibility of going directly to the playoffs by winning 8 wins in the last 10 games, Williamson cannot add strength, at least in the regular league.
David Griffin, vice president of New Orleans, said of Williamson, “If our team had a play-in tournament, Williamson would not be playing. He still can’t handle 5-on-5 training.”
Should we expect Williamson to return if we make it to the playoffs? Unfortunately, this is still full of question marks. 메이저사이트
Regarding the timing of Williamson’s return, Griffin said, “Rehab continues. He has to go through a series of processes to come back, but if the recovery is below expectations, we will not send him to the next level,” he said, expressing a cautious stance.
