Zion Williamson Update: Still Out Of The Bubble, Still Testing Negative

Daily testing is a smart move by the rook

Zion Williamson is still home tending to a family medical situation but while he’s been out, he’s been getting tested daily which, theoretically, should get him back on the court more quickly.

Everyone says that he fully intends to rejoin the team as soon as possible but it’s still unclear when that will be.

Most of us don't know what the emergency that he left for is and don’t need to. It’s not our business.

Here’s a bit of family business we can talk about though: Zion’s little brother Noah went with a Nike meeting with his big brother and was drawing while the boring stuff was going on.

Next thing you know, boom! Nike takes his design and sticks it on a shoe.

We can’t even imagine what a thrill that must be for him. What kid his age gets a major design opportunity with a company like Nike? Obviously he got the chance because his brother is a highly marketable athlete, but what he does with the opportunity is up to him. Who knows?
