Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson, who had surgery on his right knee just prior to the season, on Thursday said he’s “getting stronger” but gave no indication of when he’ll return to action.
Williamson, who suffered a torn lateral meniscus, was given a timetable of six to eight weeks for his return, which would fall in the first half of December.
The No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft said he’s doing his best to keep a positive attitude as rehabs his knee.
Williamson still can’t pinpoint when he actually suffered the injury. He just remembers feeling soreness in the knee after a preseason game against the San Antonio Spurs on Oct. 13.
Eight days later, he was having surgery for the first time in his life.
