Zion Williamson struggled during the NBA's restart in August as questions continued to plague him about his fitness. Williamson, however, has appeared more explosive in his lone preseason game so far this season. Williamson had 26 points, 11 rebounds and two assists while shooting 11 free throws in 33 minutes.

"I was told that Zion, and I don't think they really wanted to publicize where he was physically when he came back to the bubble, but I have heard that it's in excess of 25 pounds that he's lost from where he was in the bubble to where he is now," said Brian Windhorst on his podcast.

"He is not as svelte by any stretch of the imagination, but he definitely is moving better."

Williamson was limited to 24 games last season following his meniscus surgery.
