Pelicans' Zion Williamson Out Indefinitely with Fractured Finger

The Pelicans' race to make the play-in game just got a lot tougher. 

New Orleans announced Friday that Zion Williamson will be sidelined indefinitely with a fractured left ring finger. 

The superstar big man had an MRI that revealed the injury Thursday. 

Here's the play that Williamson fractured his finger on:

The former Duke star has taken a massive leap in his sophomore season in the league., averaging 27 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.7 dimes in 61 games. And despite some lackluster coaching, the Pelicans are just 2.5 games behind the Spurs for the last spot in the Western Conference play-in game.
