Zion Williamson will play in the season opener

Reports came that Zion Williamson would hit the court once again after the long exile caused by injury. The 284 lbs forward will be seen in the opening night against Brooklyn Nets on October 19th.

He will be coming back to playing full games after a long year of receiving dull and harsh updates about the injury. Last year, towards the end of the season, Zion was also cleared to practice at full capacity for a while before he was called back. NBA analysts had always worried about the weight and other factors that could affect Zion’s performance and cause injury problems.

Watching closely his recovery throughout the season last year, the anticipation around his return is unprecedented. Zion was the first pick in the 2019 draft, being picked over other big names like Ja Morant, RJ Barrett, and many others. He sustained an injury during the off-season practice before the last season’s summer league. Coming back after so long surely means a huge thing for him and the franchise both.
