Zion Williamson had access to the Pelicans' training facilities during the NBA's shutdown, to continue rehabbing his right knee.
The focus was on strengthening Williamson's surgically-repaired knee, but also on improving his flexibility, to better withstand the torque he puts on his body. "They weren’t able to do any court work during that period of time," said VP David Griffin, "but they were able to get the [flexibility] work in needed on the table, and so that was important." Zion said in late April that he was good to go, so there's no doubt he'll be ready whenever NBA action resumes. May 20 10:57 am (EST)
