Pelicans' Williamson touts his physical, mental well being

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Pelicans power forward Zion Williamson said little to temper the expectations of those eagerly anticipating his return to an NBA court.

The 2019 first overall draft choice out of Duke - who has missed more games than he's played in his first three pro seasons because of knee and foot injuries - didn't request patience as he re-integrates his unusual combination of size, explosiveness and skill back into New Orleans' lineup for the first time in more than a year.

Rather, the 22-year-old Williamson portrayed his physical well-being, mental focus and sense of purpose as enhanced to their highest levels yet.
