That's because, according to National Basketball Association insider Shams Charania, the Pelicans just announced that Zion Williamson will make his National Basketball Association debut on January 22 against the San Antonio Spurs - something the franchise's general manager, David Griffin, reportedly said.

Griffin added that the rookie phenom won't be on a minutes restriction when he returns to the lineup, according to The Athletic's Will Guillory.

Williamson underwent surgery to fix a torn right lateral meniscus prior to the beginning of the season. The Pelicans now sit second-to-last in the Western Conference at a record of 15-26, however (much like the Eastern Conference), they're technically only four games back from a playoff spot. He was initially given a recovery timetable of six-to-eight weeks.

Williamson will likely take the court for the first time as a professional on January 22, Pelicans president of basketball operations David Griffin said Wednesday.

Williamson is slated to join the Pelicans in practices Friday and Sunday, one day before New Orleans travels for a game Monday at Memphis. The Pelicans rookie made four appearances, racking up averages of 23.3 points on 71.4 percent shooting from the field, 6.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.5 steals in 27.3 minutes per outing.
