Zion misses 4th straight game with knee sprain

  • Zion Williamson Duke

After the final regular season game against the Tar Heels on Saturday, Duke will have a few days to get Williamson back in the fold before the start of the ACC Tournament.

Barrett scored 28 points and Duke held on to beat the Demon Deacons 71-70 on Tuesday night after Chaundee Brown's jumper rimmed out at the buzzer.

"I have to be careful not to push this", Krzyzewski said, per The Athletic.

"I felt like I rebounded well throughout my time out there on the court, I was playing some solid D".

"Yesterday was a big day for him, though, because he didn't think before he moved", Krzyzewski said. But as to whether that might be possible, Krzyzewski wouldn't say definitively one way or the other. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said he hopes Williamson will be healthy enough to play in next week's ACC Tournament. Even without Williamson in the mix, the Blue Devils present a legitimate National title contender.

But Duke has demonstrated since Williamson's injury that it is dependent on the fortunes of a single player more than any other team in the country.




Williamson hasn't played since suffering a Grade 1 knee sprain just over 30 seconds into Duke's 88-72 home loss against North Carolina on February 20, when his foot went through the bottom of his shoe. Chanin Scott posted a double-double and was one of three players to finish with double-figure scoring numbers.

"Zion actually did some basketball stuff this afternoon", Krzyzewski said after the Wake Forest game, according to GoDuke. "We just came up short in terms of not making shots".

As for Saturday's showdown with rival North Carolina?

With Williamson out, fellow freshmen RJ Barrett has stepped up for Duke, while Carolina has a star freshman of its own leading the charge in Coby White. Kryzewski added he "would be surprised" if Williamson wasn't prepared for the ACC Tournament, which begins Tuesday. And all of those seasons have coincided with a win over the Blue Devils in the regular season finale. "If Zion doesn't play Saturday, we would have had our team together for only nine of our games in conference, and we have 14 conference wins".

The Cornhuskers (15-15, 5-14) have lost four in a row and 11 of 13 in what might be Tim Miles ' final season as their coach.
