Andrew Lopez: CJ McCollum on Zion: “Leave the young fella alone. He’s trying to rehab in peace, trying to get himself ready to come back. We spoke and I’ll spoke to him later this week or next week.” Added: “He’ll be healthy eventually and when he is we’ll welcome him with open arms.”

CJ McCollum on Zion Williamson: “Leave the young fella alone, man. He’s trying to rehab in peace, right, and get himself ready to get back. We spoke and I’ll speak to him next week to catch up with him. He’s a very talented player and he’s going through a lot.” 1/2 – 3:07 PM

New: How do you explain the disconnect between Zion and the Pelicans?
A lack of trust.
Specifically, a lack of trust between Zion and his camp, and David Griffin. nola.com/sports/pelican… – 8:54 AM

I honestly don’t think it is that bad, especially since they probably haven’t even shot promos with him, but sending an email with CJ McCollum wearing the number 2 is just funny to me. – 4:06 PM

More on this storyline

Dionysis Aravantinos: Zion Williamson on Instagram 👀 -via Twitter / February 24, 2022

According to NBA insider Brian Windhorst, there is a distance between Zion and the Pelicans and the team is unsure about the future of their biggest talent. He still thinks that New Orleans wants to keep the player though. “They’re distant, both literally and figuratively,” Windhorst said on ESPN’s SportsCenter. “He left the team in early January to go deal with this injury on his own and he’s just not been around for months. “The Pelicans gave regular updates on Zion. They have stopped doing that. They have said nothing officially on him in weeks and Zion’s camp has been very careful to shut down information coming out. There’s a lot of little bits of information, there’s a lot of speculation so we really just have to pay attention to actions. -via TalkBasket / February 23, 2022
