    Is there anyway that Duke basketball could maybe, sortaí, ya know, not give any freshmen phenoms the #1 for a few years? Just sayiní.

    When I first saw it on Bleacher Report, it said he was out for the season. Then it got changed to indefinitely. Iím hoping the first report isnít right!!

    This year, he could be back in a month and still be out for the season.

    Big chances ahead for Wendell, Joey and Jaemyn. I'm serious.

    Something really needs to be changed in our training regiment. It can't be coincidence that every year we get at least one major foot injury.

    The guys have barely played too!

    2020...what a horrible year it has been.

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.
    I would not count on Moore. He is so wound up every game this year. He is a head case.Brakefield Coleman Tape and Williams would be better able to perform.

    For everyone, really, not just those three. Jalen's been our highest usage player, and those opportunities have to flow elsewhere now. Can Jeremy build off his 7 assist, 0 turnover performance against Illinois to take more charge off the offense with Jalen gone? Matt and Jaemyn have been efficient performers so far -- are there ways to involve them in the offense even more without significantly reducing their efficiency? (More pertinent to Matt, as Jaemyn can hopefully just continue to do what he does but in larger minutes with Jalen out, not necessarily in higher usage).

    Depending on what we do with Jalen's missing usage, there can be unanticipated downstream effects. If involving Jeremy more means running more PnR for him (which Nate James suggested he was really good at), then maybe Patrick Tape all of a sudden gets minutes because Columbia ran a lot of PnR.

    Because Jalen's been inefficient (93 offensive rating) while being high-usage, there's some Ewing Theory potential here. In the long-term, Jalen's injury probably lowers our ceiling (if he's out for a long time), but in the short-term, if his opportunities flow towards efficient options, Duke could be better.

    I don't see anything that says out for year - now he may be out a long time.. I just don't really see any articles that say that.

    What I did see on this site is that it was not due to singular incident - not sure if I like that or not.

    "preseason all-ACC selection, has a foot injury, the school announced. No further details were made available about the injury or when it began to bother the 6-9, 220-pound forward, only that it didnít stem from a single incident."

    Duke injury jargon is studiedly vague. "Indefinite" can mean loss of one game or loss of the season. Putting on my Pollyanna psyche, while examining the schedule -- I can go with, "His foot has a lingering injury that requires rest. He can skip the Notre Dame game and resume with the regular schedule on December 29. He will have two weeks off before the Boston College game on December 29."

    On the other hand, Zion was out for three weeks, which seemed like three months. We waited for Kyrie for three months, which seemed like three years..

    It can't both be something that happens every year and also something that stands out as making 2020 particularly horrible.

    But it feels like it can. The toe I stubbed today hurts a lot more than the one I stubbed last year.

    just noting this is the first article where they said "it didn't stem from one incidient". Hope its just something where he can heal and be back early January

    Or it is a stress fracture that may take a very long time. I am assuming we will not see him until the end of January. The good news is that the players who are likely not to go pro will get more experience for next year. This year will all be about development. Making the tourney should be the goal.

    He needs to totally stay off of it (I am not a doctor). I know he wants to support the team, but he should not be traveling to Indiana tonight to sit on the bench and cheer. He should be staying in Durham (or with his family), off his feet and doing treatments. Historically our players with these types of injuries have traveled with the team, and I have never understood it. I know that they have casts/boots/crutches/etc., but just stay off it as much as possible. And he should have been doing so in the time leading up to him being declared unable to play. It is just common sense.

    Kyrie's turf toe WAS a 3 1/2 year injury, as far as his Duke career was concerned.
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!
