New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson has suffered a setback in his rehab process and will be dialed back even more.

Williamson, who has not played in a game this season because of offseason surgery he had for a fracture in his right foot, will be pushed back in his rehab as the team continues to wait for the bone to properly heal.

“After experiencing persistent soreness in his right foot, Zion Williamson underwent medical imaging which showed a regression in the bone healing of his fifth metatarsal,” the Pelicans said in a statement. “As a result, the volume and intensity of his training will be reduced for an extended period to help allow for further bone healing.”

It is unclear when Williamson will return to the court.
