Zion Williamson’s Status For Pelicans-Suns Game
The New Orleans Pelicans are in Arizona to take on the Phoenix Suns for Game 1 of their first-round series on Sunday evening. The Pelicans will be without All-Star forward Zion Williamson for the game.
Williamson has never made the NBA Playoffs in his three-year career, but did make the All-Star game last season in just his second season in the league.
He was the first overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft after a historic college season playing for Duke. The Suns are the top seed of the Western Conference. The Pelicans are eighth after making it to the playoffs through the play-in tournament.
