    Unfortunately feels all too familiar

    Welp... I guess he really was the right choice to wear that #1 jersey after all.

    At least Duke has depth at the position. And I could see this benefitting a few players, like Wendell Moore in particular. He really thrived as a small-ball 4 man and could get more favorable matchups on offense because of this. This could mean more minutes for Brakefield and Coleman, too.

    Ok, starting lineup predictions:

    Goldwire, Roach, Steward, Hurt, and Williams.

    May seem unconventional with 3 PG-sized players but I think K wants better ball movement.

    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.

    Anyone think we will see Jalen Johnson play basketball in a Duke uniform again?

    Nikes man ...

    Well... Graysonís ďindefiniteĒ suspension was all of 1 game. So I take ďindefinitelyĒ with Cautious optimism. At least itís not like it was 2-4 weeks... Or something similar.

    I hope Johnsonís indefinite period being out with injury is the same length of time as Graysonís indefinite period of suspension for tripping the Elon player.

    If Nikes were the problem, 75% of NCAA teams would have similar injuries every year. Itís something, but Iíd put the footgear way down the line.

    No reason to put a timetable on it now, we know heís not playing tomorrow and then the whole team will be taking an extended break. This stinks to have a setback especially during a season in which nothing is guaranteed, every game and every practice matters even more so than usual. In the short term I guess this solves the dilemma of how to play Johnson and Hurt together while still getting a big onto the floor. Other guys will need to step up, and by other guys I mean Wendell Moore.

    Yeah, I kind of made that comment tongue in cheek. I still think about Zion blowing out his Nike vs Carolina in 2019 and how it set that team back and disrupted their flow and chemistry. It still bothers me sometimes.

    Didnít realize 75% of the NCAA wore Nikes. Just in the ACC, I can think of several non Nike shoe wearing teams: Louisville (Adidas), Miami (Adidas), Notre Dame (Under Armour), Georgia Tech (Adidas), North Carolina State (Adidas), and Boston College (Under Armour). Thatís 6/15 in the ACC (40%) that donít wear Nike. 60% of the ACC wears Nike including of course Carolina who wears Jordan brand.

    Yea might be overly cautious and buys him some extra recovery time with the extended break. Tre sat briefly last year with a foot ailment around the same time.

    Agreed. Itís more likely to be chicken sacrifices that are made down the road a bit than the footwear.

    But regardless of the reason, it really sucks!

    Time for Tapť to be that glue guy.

    This might be an opportunity for Wendell to play more at the 4, where his skills are much more valuable than at the 3.
