In the 2019 NBA Draft, the New Orleans Pelicans selected power forward Zion Williamson.

Since then, he has emerged as one of the league’s most dominant players, and fans are eager to learn more about him.

Who is NBA star Zion Williamson?

Zion Williamson is a professional basketball player who was born in Salisbury, North Carolina on July 6, 2000.

He was drafted first overall by the Pelicans in 2019 after a successful career at Duke University, where he was named NCAA Player of the Year.

According to his biography, when Williamson is not on the court, he can be found writing poetry, watching Naruto, or listening to Jay-Z.

Was Zion Williamson injured?

During the 2022-23 season, Williamson has averaged 26.0 points and 7.0 rebounds, but his career has been put on hold due to a right hamstring strain.

He has been out since January 2, but he hopes to return before the NBA playoffs begin.

On March 22, it was announced that he could resume on-court activities; however, he will be reevaluated on April 5 before returning to the Pelicans’ lineup.

“I can’t confirm that he will be back or not, but we’ll see,” Pelicans coach Willie Green said in a statement, via ESPN.

“It’s extremely positive for him and our team. It’s been another one of those years that he starts off well, makes an All-Star Game, and it’s been difficult navigating injuries. It’s part of the game, but it’s definitely been tough.

“So I’m sure he’s relieved to start to feel normal again, being on the floor.”

If Williamson is cleared to play on April 5, he will be able to play in the team’s final three regular-season games against the Memphis Grizzlies (April 5), New York Knicks (April 7), and Minnesota Timberwolves (April 8). (April 9).

Williamson has amassed a fortune as a result of his successful NBA career.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, he has an estimated net worth of $18 million as of March 2023.

This estimate is based on contract negotiations and sponsorship agreements with companies such as Nike, Gatorade, Fanatics, and Mountain Dew.

According to CBS Sports, he signed a five-year rookie max extension worth at least $193 million in July 2022.

The contract will begin in the 2023-24 season and could be worth up to $231 million if he makes an All-NBA team or wins a major award during the 2022-23 season, according to CBS Sports.

“For the Pelicans to come give me this birthday gift, I’m not going to let them down,” Williamson said in a statement.
