The NBA's newest star will miss the final preseason game of his rookie season with a knee injury.

According to a Pelicans' spokesperson, Zion Williamson will sit out Friday's game against the New York Knicks with "right knee soreness." 

Zion did not travel with the team to New York on Thursday and will remain in New Orleans for further medical evaluation and testing.

The Pelicans are 4-0 in the preseason with multiple close wins that showed off their depth and fast play style.
