Fantasy Impact:

Gentry was asked if Williamson would have a minute restrictions if the season resumes. "We’ll have those conversations. Obviously, his health will be the number one priority, but the restriction was really off after his first 5-6 games. So, he was playing the minutes that he would normally play, considering with any situation really," said Gentry. "But, it will be something that we talk about when we do resume and as far as how it looks for Zion from a minute standpoint, and we’ll do that really with some of the other players." Williamson was in peak shape and should be all systems go once or if the NBA season is back on. Zion averaged 23.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 0.8 steals across 19 contests this year.
