NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Pelicans Forward Zion Williamson has been cleared to resume team activities and play in the Pelicans game Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Williamson was held out of Wednesday night’s game because of the NBA’s health and safety protocols after his most recent COVID-19 test results came back inconclusive.
In his absence, the Pelicans fought valiantly in a 111-106 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Fellow second-year Pelican, Nickeil-Alexander Walker, finished with a career-high 37 points.
Williamson will be in action Friday night when the Pelicans face the Lakers in their secong game of the team’s 6-game road trip.
Tip off is set for 9 p.m.
