Lorenzo Brown Injury: Pack PG Still Not Practicing

Grant Halverson

Things can change at any moment, but for now it's looking like we should expect Lorenzo Brown to be unavailable for the Duke game. Brown hasn't practiced since suffering the ankle injury, according to Jeff Gravley.

So it seems we'll need another good effort from Tyler Lewis, who hit X of X shot attempts against Miami. (I haven't looked at the box score of that game and never will, so what were Lewis' stats in that game?) He could play great again, but this being on the road, I'm not sure I like the odds so much. That said, this situation is still far better than the time we had to trot a true-freshman Javi Gonzalez out there in Cameron. Boy do I not miss that.

Duke will be shorthanded as well--aside from Ryan Kelly's continued absence, Josh Hairston is doubtful because of an infection on his right arm. Hairston wouldn't be a difference-maker offensively for the Blue Devils, but he would help at the defensive end. There's Plumlee and a bunch of inexperience to handle Howell and Leslie, which should be interesting to watch.
