New Orleans Pelicans Injury Report (February 7): Zion Williamson and Cody Zeller’s status revealed


The New Orleans Pelicans face the LA Clippers at Crypto.com Arena on Wednesday. New Orleans could be without star forward Zion Williamson as he is listed as questionable on the injury report with a foot injury.

Williamson was questionable for Monday’s game against the Toronto Raptors as well but was cleared to play. He played just 22 minutes for 16 points, five assists and three rebounds, as the Pelicans blew out the Raptors 138-100. Williamson’s limited playing time against Toronto could be positive news as it means he exerted less pressure on the injury.

Cody Zeller, who has dealt with an ankle injury since Dec. 20, isn’t on the New Orleans Pelicans injury report. The injury saw him miss nine games. He did, however, play in the past two games against the San Antonio Spurs and Raptors.

Naji Marshall is the only other player on New Orleans’ injury report with lower back spasm.
