Pelicans' Williamson cleared to play without restrictions

NEW ORLEANS (AP) The New Orleans Pelicans announced that forward Zion Williamson has been cleared to play this offseason without any restrictions after recent imaging on the fifth metatarsal in his right foot showed continued improvement.

Barring any setbacks, that should pave the way for Williamson's return next season after missing all of 2021-22.

There was some hope the 6-foot-6, 284-pound Williamson might be able to return for New Orleans' first-round playoff series against Phoenix after progressing to playing 5 on 5 games with team staffers in April, but that never materialized.
