It appears first overall draft pick Zion Williamson won’t be making his NBA debut in Toronto after all. The former Duke standout was scheduled to play his first-ever NBA regular season game with the New Orleans Pelicans at the Toronto Raptors’ home opener next week.

Williamson is expected to miss multiple weeks with a right knee injury according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Raptors have one more preseason game remaining, tonight in Brooklyn. They’ll begin defence of their NBA championship on Tuesday at Scotiabank Arena.
