After two games of only 15 minutes each and having to sit outside at the decisive moment, today Williamson’s limit has been slightly relaxed.

Last month, Zion had to leave the assembly area in Orlando to handle the family business. He missed about 2 weeks of training with his teammates and the entire series of pre-season friendlies. After returning and joining the team, the New Orleans Pelicans’ fitness experts reassessed Zion’s condition, requiring him to play with a limited number of minutes.
Besides, Williamson also did not have many 5×5 training sessions with the whole team, adding to the reason that he only played 15 minutes in the first 2 matches. Zion Williamson himself was very upset about this. However, he respects the decision from the coaching and medical staff. Despite this, keeping Zion on the bench contributed to “robbing” the victory of the Pelicans against Utah Jazz, where they lost with just a point difference.
In this day and age, everything has changed Zion. The main allow Zion to play more in the fourth half has created opportunities for this rookie to contribute more. When Williamson came on in the fourth quarter with 4 minutes and 29 seconds remaining, the Pelicans were leading 4 points with consecutive pressure coming from Memphis. After that, Zion alone scored 6 consecutive points for New Orleans to regain the initiative and win the final.
Today was an ineffective day for Zion Williamson in finishing some moments in the match. However, he spoke extremely timely to prove how much he is hungry to play.
