Put in solitary confinement after leaving the NBA bubble for family reasons earlier this month, Zion Williamson should be able to join the New Orleans Pelicans in midweek. “In theory, his quarantine ends Tuesday afternoon. The problem is that he still has to be tested and wait for the result before being allowed to join us ”Pelicans vice president David Griffin said.

Zion Williamson joined the bubble last Friday and protocol wanted him to observe four days of isolation and test negative. The Pelicans are set to face the Utah Jazz on Thursday in Game 1 of the NBA competition’s revival.
