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

    Bummer.

    Actually, it happened at 4:40. After a Miami free throw, Jack went to inbound the ball to Tre, but Tre was doubled, so the inbound pass went to Wendell. Wendell dribbled out of a double-team, but lost the handle and the ball went to Vasiljevic. Wendell tried to poke the ball away from Vas. Vas had his back to the camera, so you can't see the actual point of injury, but Wendell immediately grabbed his hand.

    I was stunned that no one on the Duke bench seemed to notice, and no timeout was called when Duke regained possession at 4:33. There was a stoppage at 4:28; Wendell did not go to the bench even though he was visibly shaking his hand. He finally subbed out at 4:11 when Javin made two free throws.

    Classy move, Hurricanes, going with a full court press trailing by 26 with under 5 to play.

    Random thoughts on healing

    As always, there's limited information to base assumptions on, but here a few thoughts on healing:

    Hopefully the fracture didn't involve the joint and was limited to just the shaft of the bone. (This is the most likely scenario, a "Boxers Fracture"). If it did involve only the shaft of the bone, it was likely treated with a plate and screws and it would be relatively stable immediately. That would allow immediate range of motion exercises and potentially a much sooner return to play, possibly with a protective splint. Conditioning-wise, the only limiting factor would be skin healing; swelling control and the prevention of infection would be the primary concerns. Once the skin heals sufficiently, conditioning would be unrestricted. Shooting touch would likely be most affected during the healing process.

    If the metacarpophalangeal joint was involved (i.e. the fracture extended into the joint), the timeline for healing could be considerably longer.

    Thanks for this information. I'm hoping for "Boxers Fracture" if that's the quickest recovery. If it's not, maybe he will do a Ronnie Lott procedure and come back even quicker. Oh, wait that was football and not basketball. Well, I'm sure we'll get the complete information any time now from Coach K.

    GoDuke!

    I don't recall if it was Brown or B.C. but Wendell tried to block a shot and ended up slamming his hand against the backboard. I don't recall if it was his left or right, but I remember the announcers commenting on the fact that the backboard was still shaking. They made a big deal of it and he was looking at his hand then on the bench. I wonder if that left him vulnerable to further injury or if he actually did something that game. At any rate, I wouldn't have been surprised if we got the broken hand news after that game as he performed quite a Hulk smash on the backboard.

    If Wendell Moore ever wears a Duke jersey again, I will leave DBR forever.

    Wow. I'd be surprised, since he is supposed to be back this season, not to see him rotated in, in an ACC or NCAA Tournament game, at the least.

    Wow. Really boxing yourself into a corner.

    I’m looking for a loophole for you and don’t see one. You may be bound by your words. Unless you meant to use the sarcasm emoji? 😉

    Is this really your first post since last year (March 9) when you said that "If Williamson ever plays for Duke again, I will never post on DBR again"? If so, why (a) break that promise to (b) only make another promise that you'll break?

    He/She almost made it one year. Based on Zion playing again and the OP's record on predictions, I'd say we have a good chance we see Wendell playing again this season.

    GoDuke!
