The New Orleans Pelicans announced
the All-Star forward Zion Williamson is out for Thursday's matchup
with the Miami Heat. The Pelicans listed Zion out with 'right toe
irritation' as he was previously deemed doubtful before tip-off.
With New Orleans playing their last game before the All-Star Break,
and Zion set to travel to Atlanta after being selected to his first
All-Star Game, the Pelicans are likely just playing it safe with
their young star. Pelicans guard JJ Redick was also ruled out with
'right heel soreness', per the team.
Zion should still be expected to play in this weekends All-Star Game, which tips-off Sunday at 8 PM ET.
