Zion Williamson: Unlikely to play back-to-backs

Williamson has yet to be cleared for on-court activities, though the Pelicans are making it known early on that they’ll carefully monitor the rookie’s minutes when he is given the green light.

Williamson (knee) isn’t expected to play back-to-backs upon his return to the court, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
