New Orleans Pelicans rookie star Zion Williamson will rest for Friday's game against the Washington Wizards, the team announced.

Williamson is sitting out the second night of New Orleans' back-to-back set.

The Pelicans have struggled in the season restart, going 1-3 through four seeding games. Williamson only cracked the 20-minute plateau in two of those contests.

The team currently sits 13th in the Western Conference and trails the 8-seed Memphis Grizzlies by 2 1/2 games.
