NEW ORLEANS, La. (WGNO/BRPROUD) – The New Orleans Pelicans says Zion Willamson will be out another 4-6 weeks to his injured right foot.

According to the Pelicans, this comes after a consultation with Dr. Richard Ferkel of the Southern California Orthopedic Institute. The Pelicans said Williamson received a biologic injection into the fracture site to stimulate bone healing in his right foot.

Williamson will be limited to low impact, partial weight-bearing activities for an extended period. Further updates will be given following further imaging which is anticipated to occur in 4-6 weeks.

The Pelicans are 9-21 on the season and are in second to last place in the NBA western division.
