Zion Williamson will miss Wednesday night’s game against the LA Clippers under the league’s health and safety regulations, the New Orleans Pelicans announced Wednesday afternoon.
The Pelicans travel to Los Angeles on Tuesday after they are supposed to begin a seven-game, 13-day road trip in Dallas on Monday. The game, however, was postponed due to a positive COVID-19 infection and the pursuit of a contract with Mavericks.
It’s unclear if Williamson will miss more than Wednesday night’s game.
New Orleans has not added any other players to the injury report. The Pelicans were slated to have no Lonzo Ball (bilateral knee ligaments), while Eric Bledsoe was listed as suspicious. (Right eye irritation) and JJ Redick is possible (right hamstring stiffness).
Williamson has averaged 21.9 points on 55.7% shots and 8.1 rebounds in nine games this season. This is the first game he will miss this season.
