Zion Williamson made his first appearance of the preseason on Monday and he looked a lot different. 

Williamson looks a bit slimmer, which has led some fans to think that he lost weight during the offseason. His weight has been a big issue since he came into the league since he hasn't been able to stay healthy.

That said, fans are excited by the way he looks right now.

Williamson has only played in 85 games since he was drafted in 2019. During that time, he averaged 25 points and seven rebounds per game.

He's outstanding when healthy, but he just has to stay that way. If he's able to, the Pelicans could have one heck of a season in 2022-23.
