ANALYSIS: The Pelicans released a statement from Williamson, who spoke about the injury for the first time it was announced back in September:

"As you can imagine, this has been a very difficult process for me," Williamson said. "I know there's work to be done in my recovery before I can safely return to the court, but I will continue to put in the time necessary so I can get back on the floor with my team and represent Pelicans fans and the city of New Orleans at the highest level.

"Basketball means everything to me, and I am thankful for the Pelicans organization and everyone who has surrounded me with love and support throughout this journey -- my family, friends, teammates, coaches, staff, fans, and everybody who has stood behind me and uplifted me when I needed it most."

ESPN added that, the Pelicans and Williamson mutually agreed on his working away from the team, sources told ESPN, and the Pelicans even arranged transportation for Williamson out of New Orleans.
