Kyle Filipowski, a sophomore forward, suffered a knee injury in the court-stormed aftermath of Duke basketball’s 83-79 loss to Wake Forest on Saturday. His fellow starter of late, freshman guard Caleb Foster, had a foot injury during the game and left early in the second half after scoring eight points on a 2-for-4 from deep.

This season, neither Filipowski, who leads the club with 16.9 points per game, nor Foster, who ranks sixth with 7.7 points per game, have missed a game.

As of the publication of this article, Jon Scheyer’s most recent update occurred during his Monday evening interview with Voice of the Blue Devils and Fast Break with Jon Scheyer presenter David Shumate.
Here’s what the second-year Duke basketball coach stated regarding the status of the pair as his No. 10 Blue Devils (21-6, 12-4 ACC) attempt to put Saturday afternoon in Winston-Salem behind them and start a fresh winning run with back-to-back home games this week:

“Look, I am not enthusiastic about Caleb this week. Still, we’re receiving some of his testing back, but I can’t say anything more than that.

“And with ‘Flip,’ he’s just not really recovered from what happened. He is not himself. Hopefully, he takes another step tomorrow and will be ready for Wednesday.

“But both of those guys are not where they were going into that game.”
