Duke's Williamson out for 4th straight game with knee injury

Duke's Williamson out for 4th straight game with knee injury”

As for the long-term impact of these past few games, Krzyzewski said he wasn't concerned about Duke's tournament seeding, noting that the Blue Devils have played Virginia twice and will have done the same with North Carolina by week's end.

Well, that wasn't the case at all.

Williamson has led the way for Duke all season. In his absence, the Blue Devils have struggled to find their identity - especially in the paint.

Brandon Childress went coast to coast to cut Wake's deficit down to one. But Wake Forest responded with arguably its best game of the season - yet still wound up a spin or two of the ball from earning its first victory at Cameron Indoor Stadium since Tim Duncan's senior year in 1997.

After Duke's 71-70 victory against Wake Forest on Tuesday night, the Hall of Fame coach revealed he doesn't expect Williamson, who sustained a mild knee sprain on February 20 against North Carolina, to return in time for Duke's season finale Saturday against the Tar Heels.

Luckily for Duke, Jones did return to the game and showed no ill-effects of the injury and had a great overall game with 13 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and three steals.

Junior center Marques Bolden suffered an injury in his upper leg area that caused him to limp to the locker room early in the second half.

They aren't a team full of scorers, though, and Krzyzewski said he's enthusiastic about his star's impending return and its potential impact on the Duke offense.

Jack White fell just short of a triple-double with eight points and 10 rebounds, while Alex O'Connell chipped in nine points in the winning effort.
