New Orleans' Zion Williamson (torn meniscus) out 6-to-8 weeks

New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson (torn meniscus) will miss 6-to-8 weeks after arthroscopic surgery was performed on his right knee.

What It Means:

After undergoing surgery, Williamson's recovery timeline is set for a return around December. Derrick Favors and Brandon Ingram should see more minutes at the forward positions while Zion is out.

For the 2019-2020 season, Williamson's yearlong projection includes 944 points, 479 rebounds, and 152 assists.
