Zion (knee) expected to debut on January 22

The Pelicans officially announce the Zion Williamson will make his NBA debut on January 22

New Orleans Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin said on Wednesday afternoon that he anticipates Zion Williamson will make his official NBA debut on January 22 against the San Antonio Spurs.

But in case you wanted to doubt Williamson's ability, Pelicans general manager David Griffin has the flawless anecdote for that.

Regardless, Zion finally playing is great news for the National Basketball Association! The Jazz are 9-1 against the spread during the win streak.

Without Williamson this season, the Pelicans are 14th in the Western Conference with a 15-26 record. Donovan Mitchell is leading the way with 24.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists per contest. Utah boasts the seventh-ranked defense in the league taking on a Pelicans offense shooting only 44.9 percent from the floor this season. Brandon Ingram, Jrue Holiday, JJ Redick and Derrick Favors were also sidelined for Monday's run-in with the Detroit Pistons. The team has gone 7-3 over their last 10 games and are just four games back of the final playoff spot.

After it had been reported that the Pelicans were teaching Williamson different ways to both walk and run, the latest comments from New Orleans GM David Griffin about how the rehab process has been going, on top of how the Pels are going to put him into action, make a lot of sense. The Pelicans now sit second-to-last in the Western Conference at a record of 15-26, however (much like the Eastern Conference), they're technically only four games back from a playoff spot.
