: How Zion Williamson could lose millions if his knee issue lingers

Duke star basketball player Zion Williamson suffered a knee injury during Wednesday night’s game against rival the University of North Carolina after one of his Nike NKE, -1.34% shoes ripped open, causing him to fall and twist his knee. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski called it a mild knee strain after the game, but the severity of the injury is unclear.

Williamson, an 18-year-old freshman, is the presumptive No. 1 pick in this year’s NBA draft, and one of the best basketball prospects since LeBron James. He is 6’ 7”, averages 21.6 points a game, and his thunderous dunks are frequently featured on ESPN.
