After looking flat-out dominant at times in the preseason, the New Orleans Pelicans sat out the final preseason tune-up game due to knee soreness.
New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson, the No. 1 overall pick in this past June's National Basketball Association draft, will miss six to eight weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on a torn right lateral meniscus, the team announced on Monday afternoon.
This is obviously a crushing blow for the Pelicans, who had actually hoped to contend for a playoff spot in the Western Conference this season. The 6-foot-7, 284-pound Williamson did suffer a mild right knee sprain during his only season at Duke.
The 19-year-old is viewed by some as the best National Basketball Association prospect we have seen since LeBron James entered the league back in 2003, but he has already underwent a surgery, something James has never had to deal with throughout what is now a 17-year career.

Steve Harvey's Stepdaughter Lori Harvey Arrested for Hit and Run
According to reports , she was arrested for attempting to flee the scene of a vehicle accident she was involved in on Sunday. A sedan traveling north on Moreno had hit an unoccupied parked vehicle, according to a spokeswoman for the BHPD.
Williamson was the first overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
The youngsters has drawn comparisons to Charles Barkley. The earliest side of his recovery timeline would keep him out until the first week of December, and an eight-week window would push his return closer to Christmas, when the Pelicans are scheduled to visit the Denver Nuggets.
Without Williamson on the floor, the Pelicans will likely turn to another rookie - albeit a much older one - to fill his minutes. His rebounding average is second on the team to Williamson's through four preseason games.
