They’ve made it to the postseason for the first time in his NBA career

and they did it without him.
Williamson hasn’t played at all in 2022

after suffering a foot fracture during the offseason. He had surgery in July

and his return to action has been delayed because of soreness. Despite his absence,

the Pelicans rode the wave with C.J. McCollum and Brandon Ingram.

They made it past the Clippers in the Play-in Tournament to grab the No. 8 seed.

Now the question is whether or not New Orleans can look forward

to adding their star forward to the mix for the playoffs.

The short answer is no one knows.
The long answer is that Williamson’s chances

of making it back seem to depend on who you ask.
