Zion might be back in the lineup shortly.
Zion Williamson's knee injury had the basketball world buzzing a week and a half ago. It was sure to be one of the biggest games of his life as him and his Duke Blue Devils were taking on their rivals, the North Carolina Tar Heels. Many celebrities were in attendance and were hoping to see Zion put on a show. Unfortunately for the Blue Devils, Zion ended up injuring his knee just 30 seconds into the game after breaking through his shoe. It was an injury that not many saw coming and was also quite scary at the time thanks to just how high profile Williamson has become. Since that game, Zion has been sitting out and has been engaging in the school's 4-step recovery process for knee injuries.
According to Sports Illustrated, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said that Zion is now in the fourth and final step of that process and could be close to coming back. The Blue Devils will be taking on Wake Forest tomorrow night and then they'll be headed to Chapel Hill for another game against North Carolina on Saturday.
With the NCAA and ACC tournaments on the horizon, it looks as though Williamson will be active for the most important games of the season which is good news for a team that was the early favorite to win a National title.
