Zion Williamson out for Duke men's basketball vs. North Carolina

Share

Though he's progressing toward a return to play for Duke this season, Zion Williamson won't play another game at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Williamson was hurt in the opening minute of last month's loss to the Tar Heels, complete with the far-reaching freaky image of his left foot tearing through his shoe as he fell to the court.

After Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski expressed doubt on Friday that Williamson would be available for the game, the school announced Saturday morning that Williamson will be sidelined for a fifth consecutive game.

Thanks to their much-hyped frosh trio of the forementioned Williamson, who is widely expected to be the top overall pick in the upcoming 2019 NBA Draft, swingman R.J. Barrett and small forward Cam Reddish, the Duke Blue Devils are listed as 6-1 odds to win their sixth national title according to online betting site, Odds Shark.

Including the first UNC game, Duke, ranked No. 4 nationally, has gone 3-2 without Williamson in the lineup. The Blue Devils got back into the game when the Demon Deacons missed 11 of their next 12 shots, many of them good looks.

Duke is now projected as a No. 1 seed in the ACC tournament, and Krzyzewski said he's not concerned about how recent struggles without Williamson might affect seeding.

"I don't think I would have been able to forgive myself if, if we lost", White said after the game.

Duke has largely been a mess since losing Zion Williamson to a knee injury on February 20.

Most players need some reps to get back in game shape.
