Zion Williamson Is Doubtful For Saturday Against North Carolina

Zion Williamson Is Doubtful For Saturday Against North Carolina

The contest between these two teams at Duke was tainted when Blue Devils star Zion Williamson had his shoe explode in the first minute, leading to a sprained knee and an 88-72 UNC win.

The North Carolina Tar Heels and Duke Blue Devils are just one day away from their second meeting of the season; the latest chapter in the storied rivalry commonly considered the best in American sports. He's made himself a candidate to be national player of the year and the No. 1 overall NBA draft pick, joining freshman teammate and ACC scoring leader RJ Barrett (23.3 points) to give the Blue Devils an unstoppable 1-2 punch.

"He'd love to play Saturday too, if he's ready", Krzyzewski said. He has recently taken visits to Duke, NC State, Tennessee and Virginia, and will take another trip to North Carolina - his second in three weeks - on Saturday. But he said it's more likely Williamson will return for Duke's first ACC tournament game on March 14. Now a 4-star prospect and ranked No. 32 according to the 247Sports Composite, he's the No. 3 point guard in the 2021 class, and the top player in the state of North Carolina.

The last time they faced each other, the UNC rocked the Blue Devils.

Zion Williamson isn't ready to make his return just yet.

"Playing with not a full deck has been very hard", Krzyzewski said. I think it hurt us that Elizabeth [Balogun] got in early foul trouble. Zion Williamson, with his size and his skill, has the potential to do that.

"Not assume, we are [getting him back]", he said. Most players need some reps to get back in game shape.

Wake Forest vs. Duke: Wake Forest missed a shot as time expired and Duke was able to hold on to a 71-70 win on Senior Night.

It might be safe to assume that Williamson will not play on Saturday night, but he is nearly definitely going to play in both the ACC and NCAA Tournaments. "You can't put together a well-oiled machine here in a couple practices to play in this conference at a level when you lose a kid like that".

"He's so team-oriented, " Krzyzewski explained.
