New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson faced another setback in his recovery Thursday, as the team announced he will be limited in activities after receiving a biologic injection in his fractured right foot.

Williamson will be re-evaluated once further imaging occurs in approximately four-to-six weeks.

The Pelicans announced Saturday that they discovered a "regression in the bone healing."

Williamson has been out all season with the injury, which he suffered in the offseason. It was initially expected that he'd be ready for the start of the campaign, with team president of basketball operations David Griffin saying he was "very confident" about his star's recovery.

The Pelicans have stumbled to a 9-21 record without the 2019 first overall pick.
