Zion Williamson, who injured his left hand during the third quarter of Tuesday's win over the Warriors, returned and finished with 23 points (8-of-17 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), 12 rebounds, seven assists and four steals in 37 minutes.
The injury that Williamson suffered wasn't enough to keep him out of the game, which was good news for the Pelicans as he made some big free throws down the stretch. And with Brandon Ingram spraining his left ankle during the second quarter and ultimately having to leave, having a healthy Williamson is critical as the Pelicans look to keep their play-in tournament hopes alive. New Orleans doesn't play again until Friday night in Philadelphia, so Williamson will have a little time to rest the injured hand. May 04 11:46 pm (EST)
