Duke is holding their first annual Let’s Do Another Thing John Calipari Did Pro Day, but it got off to a rough start. According to ESPN’s Seth Greenberg, who was in attendance, star freshman forward Jayson Tatum went down with a foot injury. The extent of the injury isn’t known, but Greenberg said it “didn’t look good.”

Earlier this month, fellow star freshman Harry Giles had his left knee scoped¬†and is expected to be out at least the first few weeks of the season (in high school, Giles tore his ACL in both knees).¬†Here’s hoping both, who were once Kentucky targets as well, will be okay.

Looks like the injuries and expectations are piling up in Durham. Can they handle it?

    In general, Dukies don’t make good pros.

    According to the local news and radio here in Raleigh, Duke said, “Seth must know something we don’t know”. Someone has the facts wrong.

    Tyler, any updates from Mississippi State player who was taken off the field by a stretcher? His situation is much, much worse than the stupid Duke player’s status.

      According to Mississippi State, he (Darryl Williams) is fine. Won’t play this week but should be back the week after that.

    Duke 6-foot-8 freshman forward Jayson Tatum suffered an injury toward the end of the Blue Devils’ second pro day held in front of more than 50 NBA scouts.

    Blue Devils spokesman Cory Walton confirmed to ESPN that Tatum, ranked second in the freshman class behind teammate Harry Giles, is being evaluated.

    Multiple sources told ESPN that Tatum suffered a foot injury and had to be helped off the court. The severity of the injury remains unclear.

    I was hoping that this would not get reported on Kentucky affiliated sites. Look I want Duke at 100% all year, it makes beating them sweeter (Assuming we play them in the tournament). Let’s just worry about OUR team. Chances are they are full strength come march anyway.

    Hopefully they both have quick recoveries and have no lingering effects. Hate to hear of any athlete being injured.
