Well, this is great news for the Pelicans and the NBA. As I said when he left, Williamson missing games in the bubble would be a huge blow to the league.
There are many who think the entire playoff format was set up so that Williamson and the Pelicans could get in.
After all, the rookie forward is an insane draw for the NBA.
I have no doubt at all that NBA officials were incredibly nervous when he had to leave for his family situation. They were probably panicking.
Well, he’s back now and the Pelicans have a game Thursday night against the Utah Jazz. It’s not known yet if Williamson will play, but I’d bet that he does.
Even if he has to miss a game, the NBA has to be smiling ear-to-ear that the young phenom is back on the court.
