Zion is “ready to go”
Not much new info here but it’s a new ESPN article.

LINK

quote:

The New Orleans Pelicans' rookie phenom has been a regular at the team's facility throughout the hiatus, one of several players the league granted exceptions to allow them to rehab injuries under the supervision of team trainers to avoid any setbacks. All team facilities were closed on March 20, nine days after the season was suspended because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"Zion has been diligent about taking care of himself," said David Griffin, the Pelicans' executive vice president of basketball operations. "He's in a good space physically and mentally."

Another team source went a step further.

"He's going to shock some people," the source said


quote:

Though the Pelicans didn't disclose Williamson's current weight, one team source said the team is "happy with where he is physically" and doesn't expect him to come into camp overweight.

Aaron Nelson, the team's vice president of player care and performance, and head trainer Tom Maystadt have been directly involved in Williamson's workout process and will continue to have input into how the team handles its star rookie, being mindful of his stamina and body language when he's on the court. According to multiple sources, Williamson also did additional work on basketball fundamentals at home during the layoff with his stepfather, Lee Anderson, whom he has long trusted as a trainer and coach.

As expected, doesn't sound like we fall into the "treating it like summer league" group. Let's flock up sons

re: Zion is “ready to go”
With everything he already has/does, all I want to see from him for the rest of the season is a more effective and consistent shot at the stripe and more energy on the defensive end. A lot of these woes are due to the lack of time he had to get his conditioning down for the type of pace the Peclians play at. Hopefully during the break, he was able to get into the kind of shape needed to play on both sides of the ball and keep his free throw shots consistent throughout the game.

He's gotta be below that by now since they wouldn't disclose his current weight. If he's staying in good shape, I expect he's probably around 270 and as nimble as ever. He'd still be one of the heaviest players in the league at that weight, yet he's possibly the most athletic of them all. It's insane.
