The New Orleans Pelicans are 1.5 games behind to make the final seed for the NBA’s play-in tournament. Unfortunately, the team announced today they will be without Zion Williamsons for the remainder six games of the regular season.

Williamson has been sidelined with a fracture ring finger on his left hand.

David Griffin, New Orleans Executive vice president of basketball operations, laid into the league for lack of changing the way Williamson has been officiated this year.

“He’s been absolutely mauled in the paint on a regular basis, to the point that other players have said to him, ‘I’m going to keep doing this to you because they don’t call it,'” Griffin stated during the press conference today. “There’s more violence encouraged in the paint against Zion Williamson than any played I’ve seen since Shaq. It was egregious and horrific then, and the same is true now.”
