New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson will miss the remainder of the season as he continues to recover from his foot injury, according to multiple reports.

One of the reports came from The Athletic’s Shams Charania that concluded Williamson will be sidelined and he has to wait until next season to return to the court.

The former No.1 pick injured his foot during the summer league last year and later underwent surgery. The Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin gave an update on Williamson’s condition right after the surgery.

“He had a fractured right foot that was repaired surgically,” Griffin said in September. “He was working out on his own on the court, and frankly was doing an unbelievable job; it’s crazy sometimes what happens when you look your best.”

In addition, Charania continued his report by saying that Williamson has been “doing stationary shooting,” and was in “good spirits.”

New Orleans head coach Willie Green wanted the 21-year-old to take his time since everything needs to be carefully calculated for his recovery.

“He will get on the floor at some point,” Green said. “But it’s progression. I don’t want to throw something out there and you guys hold me to it. The timeline is that we’re hopeful he can start the season. Until then, it’s just a progression with him and the medical team.”
