Here’s a Zion Williamson update from the Pelicans: the former Duke star who tore his meniscus is “getter better literally every day,” according to Pels exec David Griffin.

“He’s progressing exactly as we had hoped he would,” Griffin told a New Orleans radio station. “We’re really optimistic, and most importantly, Zion is really excited and that’s where we want him to be.”

Griffin says it’s a 6-8 week window still and closer to eight than six. That should have him back around Christmas which would make for a nice Christmas present for Pelicans fans.
