Zion Williamson has retuned to the NBA campus in Orlando.
The Pelicans made the announcement Friday evening that their rookie phenom was back after leaving earlier to deal with a family matter.
Williamson himself had this to say in a statement:
“My family and I appreciate the love and respect that everyone showed us while we dealt with a private family matter. I‘m excited to rejoin my team in Orlando and look forward to getting back on the court with my teammates after quarantine.”
In his absence, Zion was tested daily for coronavirus and came up negative each time. However, per NBA protocol, he will have quarantine immediately.
