Pelicans’ Zion Williamson (hamstring) out at least 3 weeks

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Pelicans are bracing for another extended stint without forward Zion Williamson. The Pelicans announced Tuesday that Williamson has a strained right hamstring and will be re-evaluated in three weeks. If that timetable holds, Williamson will miss at least 10 games. Williamson was hurt Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers. Williamson missed the entire 2021-22 season and was limited to 85 games in his first two seasons because of injuries. But this season, he’s been relatively healthy, until now.
