Miteri, no. – New Orleans Pelicans striker, Zion Williamson, is “progressing” in his recovery from a broken right foot, but his comeback is still up in the air.

Pelicans coach Willie Green told reporters Monday that doctors were encouraged by the recent series of tests on Williamson’s injured foot and that he was able to do work but was still not connected.

“He’s getting better. He’s doing a good job. He’s racing. He’s getting closer and closer,” Green explained. “It’s one of those injuries where we want to be really hard at work, especially with the foot, to be careful when we bring him back onto the field at full speed.”

Green said Williamson will undergo another series of tests in two to three weeks that will determine if he can apply to a 5-on-5 job, the last step before returning to work.

“I think he has to go through some of that to see where he is,” Green said. “You have to feel the real routine. That’s the part he hasn’t done yet.”

Williamson is ready to travel with the team for their next four-game tour of the West Coast. You are allowed to participate in practice if the team is going through games or rounds.

“We just want him to keep going in the right direction without any setbacks,” Green said.

The Pelicans announced Williamson’s injury at a media day in September. Initially, there was some hope that he would be able to return at the start of the regular season before it was announced that he would lose more time.

This is the second of three seasons Williamson was unavailable for the start of the year. In his junior season, a meniscus tear delayed his debut by 13 weeks.
