David Griffin said that Zion Williamson will be held out of back-to-back games when he returns from injury.
"He very likely will not be asked to take the pounding of back-to-backs initially. There will be a sort of ramp-up for him to getting back to where you would call him full strength, but he's certainly going to be playing, and we're trying to win basketball games," said Griffin during a team broadcast.
It has been a little over six weeks since Williamson had surgery to repair a miniscus tear in his knee.
Williamson has returned to doing on-court work, including light walk-throughs with the team, a source told Andrew Lopez of ESPN.
