A chorus of basketball observers said the 6-foot-7 Williamson should consider shutting it down after he njured his knee on a non-contact play while attempting to take UNC’s Luke Maye off the dribble last Wednesday. But his AAU coach told me for a story on Forbes SportsMoney that he would be “shocked” if Williamson shut it down if he’s okay to play. And Williamson has said his goal is to win an NCAA championship this year with Duke.
Despite initial “day to day” prognosis, history tells us Zion’s injury will keep him out at least a week, and maybe closer to two. Miami game on March 2nd will be ten days, Wake will be 13 days. Game at UNC on the 9th (17 days) is perhaps most realistic, erring on side of caution https://t.co/ArXmWqVr8I— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) February 25, 2019
