New Orleans Pelicans superstar Zion Williamson was shut down from any more Summer League action.
A precautionary move.
Last night, the Pelicans played the Chicago Bulls and won the game 109-72.
Williamson was on the sideline cheering on his team and even got to speak about how he’s feeling after the injury.
“It was more precautionary,” Williamson told ESPN about his absence. “I’m a competitor. Whenever I can play, I just want to play.”

With Williamson out of Summer League, the next time we will see him on the court is in preseason NBA action.
He’s definitely going to be coddled for a while, but the way he plays, the prospect of injury may always be an issue.
