Duke v North Carolina
CHAPEL HILL, NORTH CAROLINA - MARCH 09: Marques Bolden #20 of the Duke Blue Devils is helped off the floor by teammates after an injury during their game against the North Carolina Tar Heels at Dean Smith Center on March 09, 2019 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Good news as Marques Bolden is back at practice. We’re not sure when he will actually return but assuming Duke makes it through the first weekend, if he’s not back by then, we would certainly expect him back for the second weekend.

For all the angst about Zion OMG Williamson being out, we were pretty concerned about Bolden’s absence too. First, he keeps getting better which is great. Second, he opens up Williamson to do a lot of freelancing since Bolden can anchor the lane. And third, as much as Javin DeLaurier contributed in Charlotte last weekend, he’s still foul prone and Duke still has limited depth. So having everyone on hand for March is a big deal.
