According to a report, New Orleans Pelicans superstar Zion Williamson underwent surgery over the offseason to repair a fractured right foot.

He’s expected to be back by the start of the 2021-22 season.

Williamson’s health is paramount to the Pelicans’ success. Without him, the team would be in big trouble.

The one-time All-Star is coming off of an extremely impressive sophomore campaign. He averaged 27.0 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game while shooting a whopping 61.1 percent from the field.

He’ll look to take another step forward in the 2021-22 season. The team is surely hoping that his foot injury won’t emerge as an issue throughout the year.

New Orleans is looking to make the playoffs for the first time since the 2017-18 season.
