Zion sits for Pelicans vs. Spurs with finger injury


NEW ORLEANS — Zion Williamson, New Orleans’ leading scorer, missed the Pelicans’ game against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night because of a bruised left finger.

Williamson, averaging 22.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 5.0 assists this season, injured the hand while trying to block a shot in a 117-108 loss to Orlando on Wednesday. He has remained relatively healthy, playing in 65 of the Pelicans’ 76 games.

His absence left the reeling Pelicans, losers of three straight at home, extremely short-handed. They have played the past seven games without second-leading scorer Brandon Ingram, who averages 20.9 points. New Orleans has gone 3-4 in Ingram’s absence.
