After the win over Notre Dame, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski revealed that Wendell Carter hasn’t practiced this week due to a foot injury and that he may not play against UNC.

“He didn’t practice this week,″ Krzyzewski said in his post-game press conference. “He played gingerly tonight, and we’ll see about tomorrow. We just have to be really careful. But he did not play at the [normal] level because he’s not physically at that level.″

That’ll hurt, not least of all after witnessing the master’s class that UNC’s Theo Pinson put on vs. Miami.
