NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - The highly anticipated debut of rookie forward Zion Williamson is finally upon us.

Williamson, the number one overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2019 NBA Draft, had a promising preseason but was injured in mid-October 2019 before the start of the regular season.

He averaged 23.3 points per game in four preseason games while shooting 71.4% and pulling down 6.5 rebounds.

After going 5-0 in the preseason, the Pelicans lost their first four games of the regular season.

The Pelicans currently at 17-27, are twelfth in the highly competitive Western Conference, going 6-4 in their last ten games.

While other players like Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball have stepped up in Williamson’s absence, his return could not come soon enough for the Pelicans.

Williamson will make his debut when the New Orleans Pelicans host the San Antonio Spurs at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans at 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 22.

Without further ado, here’s how you can finally watch Williamson step on the court for the first time in the regular season.
