Zion Williamson set to miss 6-8 weeks with torn meniscus

New Orleans Pelicans’ rookie star Zion Williamson will miss six to eight weeks dealing with a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Fantasy Impact

This is obviously the last thing NBA fans want to hear but we’ve known something was up with Zion’s knees for a while now. Unfortunately he already has a history of knee troubles and it’s not great to see this follow him into the NBA. Hopefully he’ll recover fully and be on the court, killing it in no time. Until then, the Pelicans will rely on Brandon Ingram, Jrue Holiday and Lonzo Ball to be the offense. I’d expect this to also mean increase in JJ Reddick’s minutes.
