It doesn’t appear that Zion Williamson will be returning to the court anytime soon.

On Saturday afternoon, various reports revealed that Williamson had a setback in recovering from his surgically repaired foot and will be shut down from basketball activities for the time being.

A few days ago, ESPN’s Tim MacMahon remarked that Williamson had ballooned to nearly 330 pounds while recovering from his injury.

“The number I’ve heard from several places about Zion is 70 pounds higher than 260. You do the math,”

It’s unclear whether Zion’s weight had anything to do with his injury setback, but the combination of the two probably means that there’s a good possibility tne Pelicans superstar will not play this season.
