New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson has been cleared to participate in full team basketball activities, the team announced Friday.

Williamson hasn't played this season as he continues to recover from a fractured right foot. He underwent further imaging on his foot, which was surgically repaired in September, on Nov. 24. Williamson participated in a 4-on-4 full-court workout during Friday's practice, but the 2019 first overall pick still remains without a concrete return-to-play timeline.

The Duke product has been plagued by numerous injuries over his NBA career. Williamson's professional debut was delayed several months until January 2020 because of a torn meniscus suffered during the preseason. He only appeared in 24 games during the 2019-20 season as a result.

Williamson looked dominant in the 61 games he played during his second campaign, posting averages of 27 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists while shooting 61.1% from the floor.

The Pelicans have gotten off to a disappointing 4-16 start with Williamson sidelined this season.
