Zion Williamson's Feb. 20 injury during a loss to North Carolina was the one heard around the college basketball world, especially since it happened when his foot burst through the Nike shoe he was wearing.

Zion's shoe: destroyed 😳 https://t.co/LqQ2te0Jay

He will not be donning Paul George's signature line during the ACC tournament:

Instead, he will wear Nikes from Kyrie Irving's signature line when the Duke Blue Devils face Syracuse in Thursday's matchup. Robby Kalland of Uproxx noted there has been "plenty of discussion" about Williamson's future shoe choice after he was seen wearing an Adidas tracksuit, but he is still on the Nike-sponsored Blue Devils.

Duke was just 3-3 without him but can likely secure a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament if it wins the ACC tournament upon his return.
