On Wednesday night, the Duke Blue Devils hosted the North Carolina Tar Heels in one of the biggest college basketball games of the season. Less than a minute into the contest, Zion Williamson suffered a knee sprain after he blew through his shoe trying to make a move against a defender.

Williamson was wearing a pair of Nike's PG 2.5 when he blew through where the sole meets the top of the shoe. With President Barack Obama in the building and ticket prices reaching Super Bowl levels, Williamson was sidelined after just 33 seconds.

After suffering the injury in Nike shoes, some wondered if Williamson will sign with Nike when he enters the NBA. For those asking that question, odds have been released.

Nike is not the favorite.

In fact, Adidas is now the leader to sign Williamson out of college.

Williamson would join NBA stars like Damian Lillard, John Wall and James Harden if he signs with Adidas.

Not far behind in the odds is Nike, who owns the largest portion of the NBA's top talent.

Puma re-entered the NBA game in 2018 and already landed a few top players like DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay.

We'll have to wait and see if Zion's injury impacts which company he signs with.
