New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson was at practice Tuesday getting shots up in his recovery from offseason knee surgery.

I don’t know about you, but to me it looks like Zion’s draining those corner 3s with relative ease. Williamson is currently outside his 6-8 week recovery window for a return to New Orleans. He has yet to make his debut after being selected No. 1 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft. The Duke product isn’t expected to return any time soon with the Pelicans on a 12-game losing streak and in second-to-last place in the NBA. Still, we’re all patiently waiting for the debut of Zion, so hopefully this is a step in the right direction.
