Opting for a break, Zion Williamson will sit out the Saturday game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, marking his second absence this season.
The first instance was a personal choice, amid speculation about anticipating the arrival of a new family member.
In the recent victory against the Nuggets on Friday, Williamson logged 33 minutes. To fill his gap, the Pelicans have diverse options, with Matt Ryan and Naji Marshall among them.
Despite the recent respite, Williamson has maintained good health, participating in 10 out of the Pelicans’ 11 games this season.
His primary focus remains on sustaining availability, with a commitment to consistent contributions throughout the ongoing season.
