Duke point guard Tre Jones missed Saturday’s 75-70 victory against Brown with a mild left foot sprain and remains day-to-day, the school announced.
It’s the second consecutive game that Jones has missed for the Blue Devils. He was also absent against Wofford on Dec. 19.
Jones is averaging 15.6 points and 7.1 assists for a Duke team that will return to conference play on Tuesday against Boston College.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski didn’t seem concerned about Jones’ long-term viability after the team’s win on Dec. 19.
“He has a slight sprain and it’s better with this break to get well,” Krzyzewski said then. “He’ll be back and he’ll play right away.”
