Duke is already thin up front with only two guys really available to back up starting big men Wendell Carter Jr. and Marvin Bagley. That’s Marques Bolden and Javin DeLaurier and it looks like those two guys will both be out for at least one game if not more.
DeLaurier and Bolden are averaging 13.8 and 12 minutes a night, respectively. They will be missed, but that means guys like Antonio Vrankovic, Justin Robinson and Jordan Tucker will have to step up and fill in those minutes against the Panthers who are 8-8 and 0-3 in conference play.
The game is set for a 7 p.m. tipoff on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.
