    Shawn Crest at Blue Devil Country is reporting that Duke expects Wendell Moore will return from injury sometime in "mid February."

    It's been 3 weeks since Moore had surgery on his hand. Obviously, another 3 weeks would be the long end of the 4-6 week estimate. Three weeks is also the home game against Florida State, on February 10th.

    if this is true, outside of Trey and Cassius, why does it always seem like the return of our key players from injuries always seem to align with the longer/longest return projection instead of the earliest one. It would be great to have Wendell for the Carolina game in Chapel Hill.

    I think we just notice it more when it takes longer. Stanley only missed one game earlier this season after an “indefinite” knee injury like you said. Back in 2010 Lance Thomas had some knee injury that sounded really ominous, leading Zoubek being brought into the starting lineup, then Lance was just mysteriously fine.

    I also think our medical staff is conservative with letting players totally heal rather than rushing them back into the court. Just because an injury takes X amount of time to heal doesn’t mean they can play immediately.

    Also, no one from the program ever said Moore was out 4-6 weeks.

    I'm glad he's not getting further from returning to the court. 😜 I can't exactly draw a timeline for Moore's return from that comment.

    That's a great sign. "Closer" could mean anything from a week to a month, but it's becoming clearer and clearer that his return is a matter of when and not if. I know the "if" possibility was minor from the get-go, but given the state of modern collegiate basketball and top-tier talent that's never completely out of the question. I'll take all the good news I can get.

    Yes, classic K-speak, "closer" could be a month or three months. It will happen when it happens, just have to wait and see.

    Reminds me of a classic joke from Mitch Hedberg

    Friend: “This is a picture of me from when I was younger.”

    Me: “Every picture of you is from when you were younger!”

    Yeah K! We're not falling for that line.

    I love K.

    "I saw this wino eating grapes. I was like - Dude you have to wait."

    Seriously though, can we get rid of the first two words in this post? It scares the Dickens out of me every time like it just happened all over again.

    That’s a Steven Wright joke unless Mitch stole it

    Yeah, Mitch had one that went kind of like:

    I walked by a dry cleaner at 3 in the morning and their sign said Sorry We're Closed.
    I was like - You don't have to be sorry. It would be inappropriate for you to be open at 3am.
    It's not like I will come in at 10am and say, "I was here at 3am and you were closed. Someone owes me an apology."

    Loved that guy. (And Steven Wright)

    It's true! Twitterverse also has a video of Wendell Moore dressed and warming up before the game tonight. Very interesting.

    He appears to have a couple fingers taped on his right hand.

    That would be welcome news. I'm not in a hurry for him to get back though we can really use him. I'd rather he be 100% fit and ready to rejoin the team than come back a week too soon.
    Must . . . NOT . . . Pun . . .
