Zion Williamson Left His First Summer League Game With A Knee Injury

Zion Williamson Left His First Summer League Game With A Knee Injury

Summer league will culminate with a championship game on July 15.

NBA Prospect Zion Williamson is introduced before the start of the 2019 NBA Draft at the Barclays Center on June 20, 2019 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

Moreover, the National Basketball Association has also cancelled the rest of the games in the Thomas and Mack Center.

But that wasn't the only snag in Williamson's debut.

Outage hits Facebook services worldwide
Interestingly, because of this image outage people were able to see how Facebook's AI automatically tags photos behind the scenes. Today has been highlighted by outages on the world's largest social media platforms, and now Twitter has been added to that list.


Wherever he goes, Williamson has always seemed to attract the largest crowds and command the most expensive tickets.

However, Williamson has shown up to Summer League in something else...

Play was immediately stopped due to the quake and fans and players left the Thomas and Mack Center. His biggest play came midway through the first quarter when Williamson ripped the ball right out of Kevin Knox's hands and threw down a vicious two-handed slam that sent Vegas into a frenzy. New Orleans also lost prized rookie Zion Williamson to a minor injury, though his absence in the second half was only deemed as a precautionary measure. He finished with 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting from the floor, 0-of-2 from three and 3-of-6 from the line.

Play has been halted with seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, as the scoreboards and speakers hanging from the roof were seen shaking due to a 6.9 magnitude natural disaster with an epicenter around Ridgecrest, Calif. -about 230 miles west of Las Vegas. The NBA later decided that the game would end there, with the Pelicans prevailing.
