New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson was seen as the upcoming face of the league when he stepped onto the court in his rookie season. However, after the franchise built a team around him, the 2021-22 season wasn’t the perfect route for the high-performing player. Not only has he been sidelined, but stars like Ja Morant and Luka Doncic have completely overshadowed Zanos’ presence.
Before the start of the 2021-22 season, Zion Williamson suffered a devastating setback due to his foot injury. The latest update suggests the 21-year-old will also be out of action for the remainder of this season. Which certainly has neutral NBA fanatics and Pelicans fans calling out their star. Some of them consider him a big “bust”.

Zion Williamson is out for the remainder of the 2021-22 season
The business end of the NBA season is upon us, and the New Orleans Pelicans fanbase doesn’t seem happy. With 11 games remaining in the regular season, it seems unlikely that Zion Williamson will return. Although many have anticipated his return, the latest news indicates that Zion will not return any time soon.
Check out how the fans reacted to it.
Given Zion Williamson’s absence, Brandon Ingram was phenomenal. He’s averaged 22.8 points and 5.5 assists this season. CJ McCullum averages 26.1 points, 6.6 assists and 5.4 rebounds. Despite facing an injury crisis all season, the team has fared well and has kept playoff hopes alive so far.
The Pelicans are expected to face Los Angeles Lakers in the Play-In tournament. With Zion out, all hopes will be on Ingram and new signing McCollum. Considering the 21-year-old would have been a great addition to the team in the playoffs, it’s certainly a huge blow to the franchise. Where will the New Orleans Pelicans end their 2021-22 season campaign? Remains to be seen.
