Duke freshman Jayson Tatum suffered what school officials are calling a "foot sprain" during Tuesday's Pro Day and is expected to be sidelined for the next two weeks.
Tatum will not play in either of Duke's two exhibitions.
"This is the best possible news," said Duke's Hall of Fame coach, Mike Krzyzewski. "It is a manageable injury that will not impact Jayson long-term. We look forward to having him back very soon."
Tatum is a 6-8 forward whom most project as a top-three pick of the 2017 NBA Draft. Duke's other heralded forward, fellow freshman Harry Giles, recently had knee surgery and is already expected to be sidelined when the Blue Devils open the regular season Nov. 11 against Marist at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Duke is ranked No. 1 in the CBS Sports Preseason Top 25 (and one).
