Here’s an update on Duke’s Wendell Moore, out since the end of the Miami game on
with a broken finger that required surgery.
On the weekly teleconference, Coach K told the News & Observer that “[w]e hope that in a few weeks, in February, he’ll be back with us. But he’s progressing well. He’s staying in good shape. Obviously he’s not doing anything with his right hand. But he is staying in shape.”
That’s good news. Duke’s defense, rebounding and versatility have been affected by Moore’s absence. When he comes back, he’ll make a huge difference for the Blue Devils.
And the best news right now is that he can run. As soon as his hand is solid, he can help on defense and the boards and the rotation.
We think that Duke would have won at least one of the games against Clemson and Louisville and possibly both. He’s that key for Duke.
