Duke hasn’t discussed shutting down injured Zion Williamson, coach Mike Krzyzewski says

Sporting News

Duke has no plans to shut down Zion Williamson after the freshman sensation suffered a knee injury earlier this week, according to coach Mike Krzyzewski.

The Blue Devils coach explained Saturday after his team topped Syracuse, 75-65, that he hasn't had any conversations with Williamson or his family about ending the forward's collegiate career earlier than expected.

"We would never play a kid who's not ready," Krzyzewski said, per ESPN. "We would never play a youngster who didn't want to play. It's not about that. He wants to play. He loves being at Duke.

"He doesn't like being injured. It's an injury you can get over in a shorter period of time. There's just a protocol that we have to go through to make sure he's completely ready. We're not rushing anything, so that's why we said day to day because it's literally day to day."
