VIDEO: Zion Williamson Might've Almost Fallen Asleep Trying to Watch Pelicans-Pistons

New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson may have fallen asleep during Monday night's game.
New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson may have fallen asleep during Monday night's game.

Zion Williamson is nearing his debut for the New Orleans Pelicans after months of sitting on the bench and waiting. His team picked up a nice overtime win over the Detroit Pistons on Monday night, but Williamson did not appear too interested as he let his eyes take a rest.

The end of the game was near and the pressure was on. By that point Williamson was ready for bed. He may not be feeling all that excited until his debut, which reportedly could come this week.

The Pelicans are near the bottom of the Western Conference standings, but still remain in contention for the No. 8 overall seed. Getting Williamson back will only help the team's playoff chances.

He now just needs some early success to avoid having this sleeping clip become a regularly used meme.
