Duke can’t afford any more serious injuries with star Zion Williamson out, but on Saturday the Blue Devils were dealt another blow.
Junior center Marques Bolden suffered a scary fall while attempting to block a shot in transition. He was down on the court for a long time before attempting to walk under his own power. He couldn’t do it on its own and needed help to get off the floor.

North Carolina fans gave Bolden a hand as he left the court:
While Bolden doesn’t get the acclaim of Duke’s star freshmen, he’s been an important rim protector for the team. He’s averaging 6.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 20.0 minutes per game this season. With Williamson out, he had become increasingly important to the squad.
Williamson missed his fifth game in a row on Saturday.
We’ll update as we hear anything else on Bolden.
