Default Zion is gonna be sidelined for ‘weeks’

His sore right knee is actually an injury, so this season is off to dumb start. Pels have YDK though so no drop off for them.

I would really like to see this guy play, he would be really entertaining to watch, but experience and logic say that it is not possible for his joints/tendons or ligaments to last with such a heavy body and huge bounces.

Simmons, Blake and embiid got their careers started on injuries and they seem fine now, so calm down.

Maaaaan....it's VERY entertaining to watch Zion play and it's one of the most interesting story lines of this season, for me personally. That sucks, I was looking forward to his regular season debut.


Get well big man. Zo and YDK gotta step it up for the big easy, they have plenty of help.

Nope, a month from opening night. So he should be back in time to play against LAL.

He almost has too much explosiveness for his weight, he’s a rare phenomenon you don’t really see someone his size so quick and athletic all that jumping and flying will take a toll on his knees

He should drop 20lbs. This should be a wake up call for him.

And every step of the way people said he was carrying too much weight... the trend suggests he is going to have health issues his whole career (however long that may last) unless he gets serious about being in playing shape.

Sucks.

I knew that extra weight coupled with his style of play would be detrimental.

And he doesn't take all the drugs Bran takes to stay healthy.

He’s too heavy for his style of play ... tip of the iceberg

He has to eat like 10.000 calories a day to remain so fat despite all that exercise.
