DURHAM, N.C. (AP) _ Duke captain Chris Duhon sprained his left wrist, then coach Mike Krzyzewski hurt his leg and didn’t return for the second half of the sixth-ranked Blue Devils’ 102-74 exhibition win over the EA Sports All-Stars on Thursday night.
Shavlik Randolph scored 18 points in 19 minutes, and Daniel Ewing added 16 points for the Blue Devils.
Duhon tumbled to the floor after being fouled with 8:05 left in the first half, injuring the wrist on his non-shooting hand. When he went down, Krzyzewski moved off the bench, and the coach’s right hip appeared to lock up. He had the hip replaced in March, his second hip-replacement operation.
The Hall of Fame coach limped off the court and was taken to Duke Medical Center for X-rays.
X-rays on Duhon’s wrist were negative. Assistant coach Johnny Dawkins said it was too early to tell whether Duhon would be ready for the regular-season opener against Army on Nov. 23.
``The fall was scary, and my wrist is killing me right now,″ Duhon said. ``But the team played well, and we’re making the steps that we need to make.″
The Blue Devils were up by 21 at halftime against a team North Carolina State beat 60-58 Wednesday night. The Blue Devils went up by 17 less than 10 minutes in, as freshman point guard Sean Dockery made a pair of fadeaway shots while he was being fouled.
Damien Cantrell led EA Sports with 19 points.
