LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) โ€” The New Orleans Pelicans have scratched rookie Zion Williamson from the lineup against the Washington Wizards.

The team has designated Friday a rest day for the NBAโ€™s top overall draft choice after he scored 24 points in 22 minutes in the Pelicansโ€™ 140-125 loss to Sacramento on Thursday.

Williamson has seen his playing time limited after missing nearly two weeks of practice in July to attend to a family medical matter.
