“The nature of his injury wasn’t such that that was what was called for,” Griffin said. “Other players that have had to make that determination, I think in almost every case they had a much more significant surgery. Blake Griffin fractured a kneecap. That’s a different issue. Zion knew from the very beginning that he was going to be able to play, and he wanted to play.”He’s told you he hasn’t been overly happy with me that he hasn’t played yet. It was never a thought that he wasn’t gonna play.”Pelicans schedule 2020Here are the Pelicans’ next five games:DateOpponentTimeNational TVJan. 22vs. Spurs9:30 p.m. ETESPNJan. 24vs. Nuggets8 p.m. ET—Jan. 26vs. Celtics6 p.m. ETESPNJan. 28at Cavaliers7:30 p.m. ET—Jan. 31vs. Grizzlies8 p.m. ET— (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/30/20/zion-williamson-getty-101519-ftrjpg_1itb41gbxy1u01p8ay90dwlfqf.jpg?t=-1420373705&w=500&quality=80 Zion Williamson is coming to an arena near you.The injured Pelicans rookie, who has yet to play a single second in a regular season game after undergoing surgery on his right knee back in October, finally received some good news.

You can also live-stream the game via Watch ESPN.Zion Williamson injury timelineThe Pelicans couldn’t determine the exact moment when Williamson hurt his knee, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, but coach Alvin Gentry suggested the injury may have occurred during a preseason game on Oct. 13 against the Spurs. Williamson informed the Pelicans on Oct. 16 he was feeling tightness in his knee — there was no pain or swelling — and a precautionary MRI on Oct. 17 revealed a torn right lateral meniscus.Following arthroscopic surgery to repair the meniscus, Williamson was initially estimated to be out six to eight weeks, per a team statement. Using the NBA’s Opening Night (Oct. 22) as a starting point, a full eight weeks would have pushed his debut date back to Dec. 17.However, Williamson was held out beyond that window, and his recovery extended into 2020. Despite the long wait, New Orleans never considered holding Williamson out for the entire season. Williamson briefly showed the kind of force he can be during the preseason, averaging 23.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.5 steals in four games. If he is even close to that version of himself, the Pelicans might not be completely out of the Western Conference playoff picture.As exciting as this development may be, let’s just start with his first game. Here is everything you need to know ahead of Williamson’s NBA regular season debut with the Pelicans.MORE: Ja Morant is running away with Rookie of the Year read more

Despite staying in the game for the majority of the final quarter, it was the experience of Mico that prevailed in the end as the Annette Daley-coached team outscored their opponents by three to give their team a narrow win and kept their unbeaten record intact. It was indeed a good day for Mico, as earlier in the day they had two wins over home team G.C. Foster College. In the intermediate league, Mico B scored a convincing 49-15 win over G.C. Foster B before their junior team remained unbeaten this season after a 36-18 win over G.C. Foster C. In other matches on the day, G.C. Foster A stopped EXED Community College 47-30, CASE stopped Moneague Community College 22-16, Sam Sharpe Teacher’s College brushed aside Bethlehem 32-5, and Knox Community College dislodged Brown’s Town Community College 39-10.

With their home fans cheering them on, the Mico team, despite several errors in centre court, were able to come into their own in the second quarter as goal shooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid, starting for the first time this season, was bang on target as the home team outscored their opponents 13-10. Both teams went into the half-time break with the score tied at 24-24. It was tit for tat in the third quarter as both teams traded goals. Harwood was in terrific form finding her target quite easily, despite goal defence Vangelee Williams making some crucial stops. Bryan was also having a big game for the UWI team as it was another tie at the third quarter with the score being 36-36. MICO’S EXPERIENCE PRESEASON favourites Mico A had to dig deep at home on Saturday to deny UWI A in their top-of-the-table clash in the preliminary round of the Intercollegiate senior netball competition as Mico came away with a close 45-42 win over their opponents. Both teams came into their encounter unbeaten after picking up four consecutive wins each and with several former and present national senior representatives on show on both teams, an epic encounter was expected.

Foster College, while, playing at home, Mico had an impressive 40-24 win over University of Technology. read more
