Zion Williamson receives injection in foot as return to play remains many weeks away
The New Orleans Pelicans provided another update Thursday regarding Zion Williamson’s recovery from a foot injury and the resulting surgery.
An injection to stimulate bone healing was given Wednesday to the All-Star:
Following a consultation and further evaluation with Dr. Richard Ferkel of the Southern California Orthopedic Institute yesterday, Zion Williamson received a biologic injection into the fracture site to stimulate bone healing in his right foot.
Williamson will be limited to low impact, partial weight-bearing activities for an extended period. Further updates will be given following further imaging which is anticipated to occur in 4-6 weeks.
The third-year pro has not played this season after having surgery in the offseason.
