Duke Blue Devils’ superstar basketball player Zion Williamson suffered a freak injury last Wednesday, February 20th. In the first 40 seconds of the game, Williamson tore through his entire shoe and suffered a grade 1 right knee sprain. Since then, Zion missed Duke’s last game against Syracuse and is not expected to play tomorrow against Virginia Tech.
The question that has been floating around is not when Zion will return to play, but whether he will play again at all this season. Expected to the number one overall pick in this years NBA Draft, many people think he should sit out the rest of the season. While Duke has an incredible team that could very well make a run at a national championship, Zion is risking getting injured again or making it worse. Overall ruining his chances at being one of the best NBA players in a long time. Sports Reporter Darren Rovell asked Twitter what they think.
There you have it, 2 out of 3 people think Zion should call it quits. NBA players Trae Young and Isaiah Thomas also expressed their opinions saying that they believe Zion should rest. It will an interesting next week or so to see what Zion will do.
