    Wendell Moore breaks hand-- out for an extended time

    Per the News and Observer:

    No. 2 Duke will be without a key member of its backcourt rotation for an extended period of time.

    Wendell Moore Jr., suffered a broken bone in his right hand late in Saturday night’s 95-62 win at Miami and is scheduled to have surgery on Monday, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.

    Always hate when guys get hurt, but we have plenty of depth at his position. It stinks that he was really starting to improve and now has this setback. At least with a hand injury he can maintain his conditioning and hopefully will be able to return in time to work his way in before the postseason.

    Why doesn't the GoDuke site have this? Would think with K releasing the info, they'd be all over it.

    Ugh... at least this is a Duke team with a ton ton ton of depth so we should be able to absorb this loss without too much harm but Wendell was a great defender and one of the better half-court one-on-one creators on the team. I certainly hope he will be back soon!

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Thanks!!

    So now we add the fourth metacarpal bone to the 5th metatarsal we are all so familiar with.

    Yep

    I remember the play, seeing Wendell grab his hand, but seemingly shake it off. I assumed it was just a jammed finger.

    Time for AOC to step up. He's got a chance to earn more minutes.

    I'm not sure I totally agree with this. While we do have depth on the wing, our other wings don't quite have the playmaking chops of Wendell. While Jordan Goldwire has functioned admirably as the "backup point guard," Wendell Moore really has been the true backup play maker. Although his passing accuracy leaves a lot to be desired, Wendell at least could create offense off the dribble, which is a skill this team didn't have much to begin with, and now has even less. Cassius and Alex are more slashers than distributors, and Joey is basically a catch and shoot specialist. I anticipate even more minutes for Jordan Goldwire with this development, and he's going to have to step up his production as a distributor while Wendell is out.

    For one datapoint, Steph Curry was projected to be out for at least 3 months with his broken hand that required surgery.

    Id prefer if everyone shared their own personal stories involving similar injuries, since those are particularly relevant.

    Seriously though, it sounds like its way too early to get a timeline on his return. Hopefully well get some updates after the surgery happens. Alex has a great opportunity to step up.

    well, there IS the confouding factor that if he came back earlier, it might derail the Warriors ability to tank for a lottery pick.

    3 months means the season would be over. Hoping he's back sooner - let's see what the team puts out later today or tomorrow.

    This may be my fault...

    I did absolutely jinx this with my front page article... ugh. I even resisted from including "barring injury" and I still jinxed it!

    But, as many have said, if we had to continue our curse of one bad injury every year, this would be the year we can weather it, especially on the wing. Moore has averaged 22 mpg this season: a combo of Cassius, Joey, Alex, and even Jordan and Matt (it small or big lineups, respectively) can easily soak up those minutes.

    The most important thing, IMHO, is going to be if either Joey or Alex can step up and "claim" these minutes. In the long run having one of those guys contributing more consistently as "shooting option A", with the other falling into a "B" role, would probably be a huge benefit down the line.

    Joel Berry didn't miss a ton of time (I think) when he broke his hand right?

    There's 27 bones in the human hand, so it's really hard to compare against other hand injuries until there's more information.

    There are 27 bones in the human hand. Perhaps it matters which one he broke. I've always been a metacarpal guy myself.
