Duke Star Zion Williamson ‘Doubtful’ For Game Against UNC Saturday

Krzyzewski had previously said he expects Williamson to return for the ACC tourney, so it looks like the recovery process is going as planned.

Tre Jones' 3-pointer cut UNC's lead to 61-58 with 10:05 to play before a 14-2 UNC run allowed the Tar Heels to pull away.

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski told reporters after the Wake Forest game that Williamson has been doing some "basketball stuff" and should be ready for next week's ACC Tournament.

UNC clinched the No. 2 seed for next week's ACC Tournament and bolstered its case as a No. 1 seed for the NCAA Tournament.

Krzyzewski said Friday that Williamson would have another workout later in the day without contact barring any setbacks following his activity Thursday.

"His knee is going to be OK", Krzyzewski said.

The Blue Devils needed a late comeback and a lot of missed Demon Deacons shots to fend off disaster in the form of an 11-17 Wake Forest team that walked onto Coach K Court a 26.5-point underdog.

No. 3 Duke, led by freshman forward RJ Barrett, faces rivals No. 4 North Carolina, led by freshman guard Coby White, in the final weekend of the ACC regular season at the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Saturday, March 9, 2019 (3/9/19) at 6 p.m. eastern. "I'm proud of the fact that our guys put us in that position".

His 21 points - 14 of which came after the intermission - came on 8-of-18 shooting, and he was 4-for-10 from beyond the arc. Yes, this team looks much different without Williamson, but the Blue Devils are looking at this stretch without him as a proving ground. "But just as a team, we've got to learn from this loss for sure".

The Blue Devils freshman, a national player of the year candidate, has missed four consecutive games since picking up a knee injury when his sneaker blew up under him two weeks ago.

Zion Williamson's status is unknown. Yet that 11-0 burst that finally jarred the Tar Heels loose in a tight game was a display of why they have lost just twice in league play: fast-paced, explosive and at times withering for opponents to chase down.
