Injured New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson has been sighted at his team’s game against the Houston Rockets.

Houston journalist Steve Helwick posted a now deleted image on social media of the former No. 1 Pick dressed in casual clothes in attendance of the Toyoto Centre clash.

The journalist who posted then deleted explained why he removed the tweet:

Of course the internet already ran with the Zion pic:

A foot injury that he had surgically repaired has sidelined Williamson all season, with the Pelicans hoping he can return to practice this week.

He’ll have to play himself back into shape.
