Ryan Kelly Injury Update: Duke Senior out Indefinitely with Foot Injury

Grant Halverson

CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman says sources indicate it could keep Kelly out for as little as two weeks, but will more likely miss about a month of action for the Blue Devils.

After injuring his foot in Tuesday's win over Clemson, Duke is saying that there is "no timetable" for Ryan Kelly's return, and unfortunately further details about the injury are still vague. Duke has been struck with a rash of foot injuries over the past few seasons, and Kelly is no stranger to those having missed time with a similar injury at the end of last year that caused him to miss the ACC and NCAA tournaments.

CBS' Jeff Goodman reports that sources indicate it could keep him out for several weeks. Duke's official Twitter confirmed he'd miss at least this weekend's game against NC State.

The Kelly injury will test one of Duke's few (perceived) weaknesses this year: depth. Though known as a stretch 4 with a deadly 3-point game, Kelly actually has been a significant presence in the paint for Duke this year, leading the team in blocked shots and ranking second in rebounding behind Mason Plumlee.
