Zion Williamson to miss remainder of Summer League with bruised knee

The game was suspended in the fourth quarter after a 6.9 magnitude natural disaster hit Ridgecrest, California, around 200 miles from Las Vegas.

The 19-year-old, the number one pick in last month's National Basketball Association draft, scored 11 points in Las Vegas before he went off with a knee injury in the first half.

Games in UNLV's other gym, the Cox Pavilion, could continue because that gym lacks an overhead scoreboard.

The 2.03-meter forward joined teammates for a final practice session before they open their Summer League campaign in Las Vegas against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday. Many fans began leaving just as the quake hit, and more departed when the delay was announced.

There are 10 games that will be played Saturday at the two adjoining sites, beginning with the Oklahoma City Thunder taking on the Utah Jazz at 3 p.m. ET.

Williamson didn't keep his adoring new public waiting for his display of dunks and power.

"Safety comes first, second, third", Summer League executive director Warren LeGarie said.

He shook off the slow start with a few vicious dunks near the end of the first quarter and into the second.

Williamson also has to improve his jump shot. "We won't push him tonight". This won't be your only opportunity to watch Zion this Summer as the league lasts all the way until July 15th.
