This past season was one to forget for Zion Williamson, who missed every game for the New Orleans Pelicans because of a foot injury. Fortunately, it appears that he's doing well in his recovery process. 

Earlier this week, a video of Williamson throwing down impressive dunks at a local New Orleans gym surfaced on social media. 

Judging by the video, Williamson's foot injury is no longer an issue. After all, the former No. 1 overall pick was elevating with ease. 

For some fans, this video of Williamson is a reminder of just how explosive he can be when healthy.  

For others, this video is a tease because they want to see what Williamson can do when fully healthy. 

And of course, there are people wondering why Williamson went all out against kids at a summer camp. 

The Pelicans could sign Williamson to a long-term extension this offseason. Vice president of basketball operations David Griffin already referred to him as a "max player." 

When Williamson was healthy in 2021, he averaged 27.0 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. 

If Williamson can return to form, the Pelicans can be a legit threat in the Western Conference.
