Zion Williamson has yet to play this season after suffering a knee injury back in October. Williamson was initially expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a torn meniscus - although the 19-year-old's recovery has taken longer than expected. Nevertheless, Williamson has proven his fitness to the Pelicans coaching staff over the past week, and he is expected to make his NBA debut on Wednesday as New Orleans play the Spurs.


#2 Rui Hachimura - Groin - Expected to be out until at least February

The Wizards initially believed that the 21-year-old would return at some point this month, although head coach Scott Brooks told the media over the weekend that a February return was now more likely.
