More unfortunate injury news for Duke


Duke just can’t escape the injury bug, can they? This afternoon, Duke announced that freshman Marques Bolden has suffered a lower leg injury, joining Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum as the third Duke freshmen to be hurt this preseason.

Giles underwent an arthroscopy on his left knee early last month and Tatum injured his left foot during Duke’s Pro day a few weeks back. Coach K told reporters on Friday that Tatum is expected to be back for this weekend’s opener, whereas Giles should return later this month. As far as Bolden, a name you should definitely remember from this spring’s recruiting battle, no one knows for sure. In a release, Duke said he will be evaluated after this weekend.

I know we all hate Duke, but no one wants to see anyone get hurt, especially kids with their futures on the line. Here’s hoping the prognosis isn’t too bad and the Blue Devils will be at full strength when Kentucky beats them for the National Championship in April.

    fyuk duke. I’m waiitng on Coach K to retire. WE CAN AND WILL WAIT YOU OUT. Just like Coach Wooden you will continue to age and disappear eventually.

      I agree. Let’s see if dook can maintain excellence through many different coaches like UK has. But we all know that K is a vampire – dude has not aged in 30 years. Probably has no reflection in a mirror either. Now where’s my wooden steak?

    No big deal. Coach Alphabet will have any losses stricken from the records where his whole roster isn’t healthy.
