Zion Williamson will miss the remainder of Summer League play, on direct orders from the Pelicans’ Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations David Griffin.

Zion Williamson was pulled from a contest vs. the Knicks after a knee-on-knee collision with an opposing player.

The Pelicans haven’t given the league any injury status on Zion. 

“Zion will move forward from this incident without issue,” New Orleans’ General Manager David Griffin said in a statement. “However, in an abundance of caution, we have made the determination that he will not appear in game action for the remainder of the NBA Summer League. He will continue to take part in training and conditioning with our performance team.”

This all sounds precautionary. 

Makes sense not to risk further injury, but the NBA can’t be too happy. They were selling out Summer League games like it was the NBA Finals. 

His debut also generated the highest ratings ever for an NBA Summer League game.
