Zion leaves summer league debut with knee injury

WASHINGTON DC- OCTOBER 01 Mitchell Robinson #26 of the New York Knicks and Kevin Knox #20 of the New York Knicks grab a rebound against the Washington Wizards during the first half of a preseason NBA game at Capital One Arena

Williamson's presence helped the Summer League sell out its opening day Friday and reach another sellout Saturday - when Williamson was scheduled to play in his second game of the summer against Washington.

Williamson sat out the second half after taking a knee-to-knee hit, though the injury is not expected to be serious.

The game was postponed in the fourth quarter as the Vegas area was rocked by the effects of a 7.1-magnitude natural disaster. Barrett had both players looking like rookies who have work to do to reach their potential. And after going No. 1 and No. 3 in the NBA Draft respectively, it won't take long for the former Blue Devils to match up against one another in the professional ranks.

The Las Vegas Summer League is the NBA's premier summer league competition. Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks was there and so was Lonzo Ball - James' teammate with the Lakers, until the trade that sends him to New Orleans as part of the Anthony Davis swap happens on Saturday.

Multiple People Reported Injured After Gas Explosion at Florida Shopping Center
A vacant restaurant exploded in a Florida shopping center Saturday, damaging neighboring businesses and sending debris flying. Another 15 to 20 people had injuries that were not life-threatening. "We know that there were two that were serious .

In the first half, Williamson played nine minutes, scoring 11 points on 4 of 9 shooting.

The final seven minutes of Knicks-Pelicans will be finished at a later date, with New Orleans now leading 80-74.

The games in the smaller Cox Center next door, which seats about 5,000 and feels more like a mid-major college arena, continued because it does not have the same overhead scoreboard.

National Basketball Association officials made a decision to delay the game at first until everything up top was stable. That was probably the smart move, given that the game is played under a multi-ton jumbotron that was slowly swaying. In just eight games with his new team, the 23-year-old forward averaged 16.9 points and 7.9 rebounds in 23.6 minutes per game. RJ Barrett finishes the game with 10 points while Kevin Knox pours in 17.
