In the report, Woj said that Williamson would undergo more testing after not traveling to NY with the team.

The Pelicans traveled to NY to take on the Knicks on Friday, but Williamson did not make the trip.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Thursday that Williamson would miss the highly anticipated preseason matchup between the New Orleans Pelicans and the New York Knicks with a sore knee.

The Pelicans open the regular season on Tuesday in Toronto against the defending champion Toronto Raptors.
