Zion Williamson underwent surgery on Monday to repair a torn lateral meniscus and will miss six to eight weeks.
The New Orleans Pelicans don't believe Williamson's weight is a contributing cause to the injury. Williamson weighs approximately 285 pounds.
“Sources told me that the New Orleans Pelicans do not believe that it’s a weight issue for Zion Williamson,” reports Shams Charania. "They're not blaming his weight on the injury. There is 100 percent confidence within the Pelicans that this is an isolated situation."
