Duke basketball fans are going to have to wait a little longer to see their favorite teams.
The Blue Devils will be playing the Kansas State Wildcats on Sunday, March 9, which means they will be without the reigning NCAA tournament champions, but they’re also without two other key players.
The Blue Devils lost forward Aaron Gordon to a torn ACL, center Alex Abrines to a season-ending ankle injury, and forward Mike Tobey to a broken wrist.
All three were injured during the first half of their home finale.
Gordon’s injury was initially ruled an ACL tear, but he was later ruled out.
The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 14.8 points and 9.2 rebounds for Duke in 2017-18.
Abrines missed the last three games with a hamstring injury.
He averaged 9.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game in 2017.
Tobey had two assists, five rebounds and one block for Duke.
He also had four rebounds, two assists and two steals.
Toby has been playing his first game since injuring his left ankle against Iowa State on Dec. 29.
