Zion Williamson has been cleared to participate in full team activities, the New Orleans Pelicans announced Friday.

The 2019 first-overall pick underwent imaging on his fractured right foot on Wednesday and was able to participate in a four-on-four full court practice on Friday.

There is no estimated date for the one time All-Star to return to an NBA floor.

The 21-year-old fractured his foot over the summer and has not played an NBA game since May. Last season the Duke product averaged 27 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.

The Pelicans hold a record of 4-16, good enough for 14th in the West.
