The young forward of the New Orleans Pelicans had to leave the compound and despite not having contracted a coronavirus, he could miss the return due to compliance with the protocol.
Zion Williamson may not contest the first game of New Orleans Pelicans at the turn of the NBA. The former basketball player from Duke University had to leave Disney due to a family emergency and although tests are being carried out daily (which for now are negative), he should confine himself to his return to the “Bubble”.
While there is no current concrete date for his return, he fully intends to rejoin the team. According to NBA protocol, their quarantine period will be determined upon their return, “the franchise said in a statement.
If he continued to have negative results, his isolation would be only four days, but since he did not have a clear return date, the rookie would miss the resumption of the competition against the Utah Jazz if he rejoins after Sunday, July 26.
Williamson played 19 of the 64 games the Pelicans faced this season and averaged 23.6 points and 6.8 rebounds. The No. 1 of the 2019 Draft missed the opening match against the Toronto Raptors and it seems that it will be the same situation in this reopening.
