Zion Williamson is expected to return to 5-on-5 action during Tuesday's practice. The New Orleans Pelicans are anticipating Williamson needing three or four more practices before he's cleared. 

Williamson averaged 23.3 points and 6.5 rebounds while shooting 71.4 percent from the field in four preseason games.

Williamson underwent surgery on the meniscus in his right knee on Oct. 21.
