Per Nick Kosmider of The Athletic, ESPN is bumping its originally scheduled game between the Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets for the rookie phenom’s debut.
ESPN moving Nuggets-Rockets off the network Wednesday night in favor of Zion’s debut makes sense from a business perspective, but it’s a blow to Denver fans whose only (legal) chance to see the team on TV this season is when they are on a national network.— Nick Kosmider (@NickKosmider) January 17, 2020
While Rockets and Nuggets fans may be upset about this, the rest of the nation is almost assuredly excited about this development.
Williamson has been out of commission since before the season began with a knee injury that required surgery. It’s a troubling development, and the New Orleans Pelicans are taking the appropriate measures to give him the best chance to stay healthy.
